The US film and TV studio, Warner Bros, is planning to create a UK based TV and Film studio.
In order to realise this, Warner Bros is in the process of acquiring the studio complex that it has been using since the early 1990’s.
Leavesden Studios in Hertfordshire is where the Harry Potter series of movies and the Dark Knight were filmed.
Warner Bros has filled for planning permission to buy and develop the studio.
If all goes according to plan and Warner Bros end up owning Leavesden Studios, this would be the first time that a US studio has set up a base for TV and film outside of the USA.
The studios are currently owned by the property management firm MEPC, from whom Warner Bros currently leases the studio.
