Warner Bros invests $155 million in UK Movie Studio

Warner Bros, the world famous Hollywood studio has invested $155 million in a British studio complex that will be set up just outside London.

The big shot studio is continuing to invest in the British movie scene after having produced all movies in the Harry Porter franchise. One would believe that the move would be to fill the void left by the successful Potter franchise. The eight potter movies made over the last decade have raked in billions of dollars for Warner Bros and this comes as a gesture of giving something back to the British film fraternity. The investment is a shot in the arm for the business community in UK considering the economic crisis in most European countries.

The studio in the United Kingdom will continue to be Warner Bros Studios Leavesden, after the Warner Bros acquisition of Leavesden in 2010. Most of the Harry Porter movies were shot in the studio.

The studio will be fully equipped for Movie and television production and will be set up on a sprawling 200 acre campus. The studio will also include huge sound stage, one of the largest heated underwater filming tanks in Europe and a 100-acre “clear horizon” back-lot for outdoor scenes.
