Plans unveiled for new £150m film studio in Reading


An American film giant has announced plans to build a new £150m studio in Reading.

Atlanta-based Blackhall Studios wants to build the new complex at the Thames Valley Science Park.

Ryan Millsap, Chairman and CEO of Blackhall said: “We are excited to be establishing a base in the UK.

“Blackhall is the global standard for entertainment production space and our US-based clients like Disney, Universal and Sony are all asking us to expand into the UK to meet their desire to create productions here.

“We hope that the site at Thames Valley Science Park will be the start of a series of investments in the UK which will see investment in jobs, training and the creative arts across a range of disciplines.”

Plans will be submitted to Woking Borough Council this year with the studio set to open in 2022.
