Hollywood giant Warner Bros is expanding its UK studios where the Harry Potter films were made. They are building three sound stages at the site at Leavesden, 20 miles north-west of London, two years after a £100 million redevelopment.
The studios are currently home to the new Tarzan film, starring Margot Robbie and Samuel L Jackson, which started production work there today.
The announcement was made on the day the Government hosted a reception for the creative industries to promote its tax relief policy for film, TV, animation and videogames companies.
Culture Secretary Sajid Javid welcomed the news, saying: "For years the UK has been at the cutting edge of the creative industries - and we want that to be the case for decades to come. This comes back to two things - and the two things that I see being as the most important in my job. One: promoting our culture. Music, film and television help inspire young kids and bring our country together - so I will always back those industries. And two: our long-term economic plan."
Warner Bros President Josh Berger said the announcement confirmed its "commitment to the UK creative industries".
