Pinewood Studios set to build £450 million James Bond, Star Wars and Jurassic Park themed attraction

MOVIE MANIA

A TOURIST attraction themed on James Bond, Jurassic Park and Star Wars is being planned for Pinewood Studios.

The £450million park — next to the site where the hit movies were filmed — could create 3,500 jobs.

Pinewood chiefs want to create a “screen industries global growth hub” at the site in Iver Heath, Bucks, that will pump £230million into the UK economy every year.

Their plans include a 350,000 sq ft film-inspired attraction called Pinewood Studio Experience.

It will rival the Harry Potter Studio Tours in nearby Leavesden, Herts.

Pinewood Group Chairman Paul Golding said: “The Government and Buckinghamshire LEP have recognised Pinewood Studios as a major economic asset to be enhanced with the creation of a screen growth hub for the UK.

“We are pleased to be able to respond with this scheme.

“We have been looking at a visitor experience for some time and feel that now is the right moment to bring it forward.

“The project will strengthen UK film and bring much needed jobs and spending.

"We hope our planning application will receive widespread support.”
