UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton, home to James Bond, has announced plans to build its first sound stages across the Atlantic in the US.
The new complex, Pinewood Atlanta, will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company.
In a statement on the company’s website, it’s been revealed that the Atlanta base will feature multiple sound stages, and will be used to produce films, television, music and video games.
The area has been chosen for it’s tax incentives for film-makers, introduced five years ago where productions receive a tax credit of 20-30% if they spend $500,000 or more in the state.
