Major Motion Picture Studio Coming To Park City
The annual Sundance Film Festival is underway in Park City and so many of Hollywood types are wandering around town. Now, a new deal may bring some of them back on a more permanent basis, since the city has inked an agreement to bring a major Hollywood studio to town.
Here are a couple new headlines from Sundance:
KSL.com has this report about the studio deal. Here are excerpts.
Raleigh Studios is the largest independent motion picture operator in the country. It produces popular TV shows like CSI:Miami and films like Iron Man 2 and The Avengers. The project, and the included soundstages, would allow Utah to compete with neighboring states for production.
There is one more step in the process, though. As part of the agreement to bring Raleigh Studios here, Park City would have to annex the land. The City Council will consider that during its meeting on Thursday. Once approved, the development could break ground this summer.
