Film studio plan at Gleneagles

HeadLine: FILM STUDIO PLAN AT GLENEAGLES

A £380MILLION film studio may be built at Gleneagles in Scotland, it
was announced yesterday.
A consortium of banks, investors and film industry experts have drawn
up proposals for an 800-acre complex which offers all the facilities
needed for major international productions.
The studio includes 14 sound stages, the world’s largest silent stage
and water tank, workshops, post-production facilities and a film
academy.
With the industry worth 91billion a year, The Gleneagles Film Studio
Partnership would need to attract just three films a year – two per
cent of the market – to make the studio in Perthshire viable. And it
could create 1,000 long-term jobs and many temporary jobs during
construction.
The scheme’s patron, Scots actor Brian Cox, said: “This vision would
reap immeasurable rewards for Scotland and the UK as a whole.”
