The brand new Scots Studio in Leith, Edinburgh in Scotland is present process main renovations and racing in opposition to the clock, because the studio has an enormous buyer lined up for taking pictures, so long as it’s finished in time. Amazon’s Lord of the Rings sequence is seeking to start taking pictures in August, and keep for not less than three months, and the studio is preparing for the enormous to maneuver in and get began.
Right here’s what dailyrecord needed to say in regards to the historical past of the studio:
The previous ports constructing in Leith was recognized as the house of a serious nationwide movie and tv studio. The positioning – three miles from Edinburgh metropolis centre – was in-built 2000 for an engineering agency however closed 4 years later. It lay empty for a number of years earlier than being taken over by a wave energy agency which collapsed in 2014. Final yr, the constructing was briefly changed into a movie studio as a part of the manufacturing for Disney/Marvel’s blockbuster Avengers: Infinity Struggle.
That’s fairly cool! If the studio may home a film as large as Avengers: Infinity Struggle, I’ve religion it is going to be a very good match for one thing as epic as Lord of the Rings. The studio is rumored to have 5 sound phases, workshops and manufacturing areas. Seems like an ideal match.
The prequel to Tolkien’s trilogy is claimed to have the most important finances in TV historical past, and Amazon is taking pictures for a 2021 launch date for the sequence.
Are you pumped for some extra Tolkien goodness?
