A Russian TV channel wants to find a female version of Tom Cruise to star in its first film to be shot in space.
The country's Roscosmos space agency has teamed up with Channel One in the hope of finding the star for its movie, which has the working title Challenge.
Filming is set to start in October next year, and it will take place onboard the internationally owned International Space Station (ISS).
It will be in a race against time with Tom Cruise, who has been announced as the star of NASA and Elon Musk's film - it will be the first movie to be shot outside the earth's atmosphere.
The selected candidate will be a 'real superhero', with the ad wanting someone who 'wants to go to the stars... at the same time as becoming a big international star'.
Although the successful applicant doesn't need to be a professional actress, she needs to be between 25 and 45, be between 150 and 180cm tall, weigh between 50 and 75kg and have a 'chest girth' of up to 112cm.
She will also need a clean criminal record.
The right person also needs to be fit - able to run 1km in three and a half minutes or less, swim 800m freestyle in 20 minutes and also be able to dive from a three-metre springboard.
