Warner Bros unveils plans for new studio
[FIRST LOOK] Hollywood giant Warner Bros has revealed these images of its proposed new ‘major production base’ in Watford, north London
Designed by ‘industrial architects’ KMG-partnership, the £100 million project will refurbish the existing Leavesden Studios buildings which the company bought this week.
The refurbishment and expansion of the studio includes two new sound stages which will be built to house and display sets, costumes, ‘creatures’ and props from various Warner Bros films shot in the UK. The site was chosen because of its ‘scale, security and privacy for outdoor and indoor filming.’
Josh Berger, president & managing director of Warner Bros UK said: ‘At a time when investment in the UK is critical, Warner Bros Studios, Leavesden is a significant endorsement of the creative talent here in the UK. It will generate jobs, inward investment and interest in an industry that is respected the world over.’
The project is scheduled for completion in early 2012.
