Warner Bros is building three new state-of-the-art sound stages at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden, two years after it opened its studios in the UK. Warners originally invested more than £100m in redeveloping what was then Leavesden Studios, before opening up its studios back in June 2012. It says it has since been running at "consistently near capacity."
Its three new sound stages consist of a 35,000 sq ft space and two 17,000 sq ft studio spaces.
"The UK is known for world class creativity and innovation, and some of Warner Bros.' greatest successes have been produced here with British talent, at the studios we're continuing to invest in and grow," says Josh Berger CBE, President, Warner Bros. "Today we're delighted to be reinforcing our commitment to the UK creative industries through the expansion of our studios and the announcement that our highly anticipated Tarzan action adventure film will be shooting there."
The forthcoming Tarzan film, starring Alexander Skarsgard, Margot Robbie, Samuel L Jackson, Christoph Waltz and directed by David Yates joins Warner Bros.' Pan, directed by Joe Wright, which has been filming in the UK since 28th April 2014.
