The company co-producing Tom Cruise’s forthcoming space film has unveiled plans for a film production studio and a sports arena in zero gravity.
Not only will it allow film producers to make movies while orbiting the Earth, but SEE predicts that it will also host sporting events in space and social media influencers who want to make content 250 miles above the planet.
Space Entertainment Enterprise (SEE) has said their planned completion date is December 2024 for the module, named SEE-1, which will dock on Axiom Station, the commercial wing of the International Space Station (ISS).
The module – SEE-1 – will form part of the ISS’s new commercial arm, Axiom Station, who will also handle construction, and will eventually float free in 2028.
Cruise had been planning to jet off in October 2021, but the trip was put back a few months for reasons reportedly relating to the $200m budget. Meanwhile, a Russian film crew successfully flew to the ISS earlier in October for a 12-day shoot on The Challenge.
Their film about a surgeon performing an operation on a cosmonaut, which was shot on the space station over the course of 12 days, is due to be released this year.
