James Cameron may be plumbing the depths of the ocean, bringing the cutting edge of sub-aquatic technology into filmmaking, from Titanic to Avatar 2, but Tom Cruise is going into space.

We have reported before about Tom Cruise trying to make a movie in space. It is not a joke. It is a real project. It moved a step closer today with the news that Space Entertainment Enterprise, the studio behind Cruise’s project, is planning a new studio that is literally out of this world.

Space Entertainment Enterprise has unveiled plans to build a production studio and, even more ambitiously, a sports arena, in a new module attached to the International Space Station. Eventually, it will detach from the station and become its own commercial facility.

This possibility has been brought about by the explosion in competitive private sector space capability. Co-founders Dmitry and Elena Lesnevsky have released a statement:

“SEE-1 is an incredible opportunity for humanity to move into a different realm and start an exciting new chapter in space. 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.”

We may not be allowed to militarise space, but we can monetize the hell out of it! A welcome distraction seeing as we might be at war with Russia by dinner time tomorrow.

The current plan is for the new facility to be up and running by December 2024.
