American illusionist David Blaine is already planning to perform his next death-defying stunt in outer space.

The ABOVE THE BELOW magician is pouring his estimated $8 million (GBP5.3 million) earnings from the recent London-based starvation stunt into the project - which is estimated to cost around $24 million (GBP15 million).

Details about the feat are sparse, but a source close to the 30-year-old illusionist says, "He'll do basic training in Houston, Texas and hitch a ride on a Russian space craft."
