Pinewood seeks a happy year-ending

Chris Forrester

Pinewood Studios in West London has been badly hurt by the Screen Actors Guild strike earlier this year. Despite a wonderful creative roster, including The Wolfman, Gullivers Travels, Slumdog Millionaire as well as its usual roster of 007 and Harry Potter movies, the studio complex saw 1H profits slashed by 55%. And it wasnt just movies that took a hit.

TV-based revenues were also down slightly (from 5.8m to 5.5m) although much of Pinewood/Sheppertons resilient TV output is skewed into the second-half of each trading year. Pinewood is used for popular British TV shows such as The Weakest Link, and My Family. The complex (between Pinewood itself, and nearby Shepperton and Teddington studios) covers 34 sound stages, 10 television studios and all the support activity.

Which is not to say all is bad news at Pinewood. Production of the new Ridley Scott version of Robin Hood is taking place at the complex, as has the new Ricky Gervais pic Cemetery Junction, and Clash of the Titans.
