In just two years' time, the company co-producing Tom Cruise's space movie will launch a studio into orbit.

He's climbed the Burj Khalifa, clung to the side of a plane as it takes off, flown a fighter jet, and even driven a motorbike off a cliff into a parachute jump; no mission is impossible for Cruise, and soon, he'll become one of the first actors to touch the stars.

The star is teaming up with Edge of Tomorrow director Doug Liman, his partner-in-crime Christopher McQuarrie, Elon Musk and NASA for an untitled movie shot in space. Really, it's one small step into the future of filmmaking with no boundaries – soon, there could be multiple studios floating above the Earth.

Space Entertainment Enterprise (SSE), which is co-producing the secretive project (there's no plot details at the time of writing, nor any other cast members or crew), plans to launch a film and TV studio, as well as a 'streaming content studio and sports arena', in space by 2024, as per The Hollywood Reporter.

The SEE-1, described as a 'microgravity film, TV, sport and entertainment production and broadcast module', will be fitted to the Axiom Station, which will attach to the International Space Station before establishing its own orbit. It's hoped the module will be able to host an array of entertainment events, as well as enabling the production of content in the low-orbit microgravity environment.

'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,' co-founders Elena and Dmitry Lesnevsky said.

'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.'

Currently, should all plans go ahead and proper fundraising be successful, the SEE-1 will become operational in December 2024. It's unclear when Cruise's space movie will enter production, or if a script is even completed.

Russia has its own plans to film a movie in space: Challenge, directed by Klim Shepenko and starring Yulia Peresild. Progress on the film is also unclear, but it's set to be more of a drama, while Cruise's film will lean more into action.
