Hollywood is headed into space.
Before the pandemic, a hot news story announced Tom Cruise and Doug Liman teaming up to make a movie in space with Space Entertainment Enterprise (S.E.E), their co-producers on the project. Now, S.E.E. has unveiled plans to build a space station module that contains a sports and entertainment arena as well as a film studio—by December 2024.
The plan is to invite creatives to the station, hold film premieres, sporting events, and license the place to third parties. There are no prices available, but I don’t think people in my tax bracket will be up there any time soon.
So who’s building this thing? Axiom Space, which has NASA’s approval to build a commercial component of the International Space Station (ISS), will undertake the construction of the SEE-1 space station. The idea is to finish by 2024, dock with the ISS, and then break apart and be fully operational on its own by 2028.
