Space Entertainment Enterprise, the company that is co-producing Tom Cruise’s upcoming space movie, has announced plans to launch a hybrid movie studio and sports arena in space by 2024.
“SEE-1 is an incredible opportunity for humanity to move into a different realm and start an exciting new chapter in space,” producers Elena and Dmitry Lesnevsky said in an official statement.
“It will provide a unique, and accessible home for boundless entertainment possibilities in a venue packed with innovative infrastructure which will unleash a new world of creativity. With worldwide leader Axiom Space building this cutting-edge, revolutionary facility, SEE-1 will provide not only the first, but also the supreme quality space structure enabling the expansion of the two trillion-dollar global entertainment industry into low-Earth orbit.”
You can find more technical information about the station over on SEE’s official website. According to Variety, “the module is intended to host films, television, music and sports events as well as artists, producers and creatives who want to make content in the low orbit, micro-gravity environment,” and the facilities “will enable development, production, recording, broadcasting and live streaming of content.”
In the coming years, the 59-year-old Cruise — in collaboration with Elon Musk’s SpaceX — is set to make Hollywood history as he films a movie in space with director Doug Liman, who’s helmed films such as The Bourne Identity, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, and Edge of Tomorrow. At this time, however, it is unclear when production on this film will begin.
