    Tuesday October 09th 2012

    Pinewood Toronto Studios is growing! The ground breaking for three new stateof-the-art sound stages, part of the company’s Studio District Evolution Plan, has taken place. Construction on the $40-million project is now underway and scheduled to be completed in 2014. “This expansion builds on the amazing success Pinewood Toronto Studios has enjoyed since opening in 2008,” says Blake Steels, president of Pinewood Toronto Studios. “We’ve attracted Canadian and international film and television productions along with big name Hollywood blockbusters.” The three new sounds stages will be 10,800 square feet each.

  • Where Social TV Is Going Wrong — and How to Get It Right
    Tuesday October 09th 2012

  • Pinewood Toronto Studios Expands to Woo More Hollywood Tentpole Shoots
    Thursday October 04th 2012

    A $40-million expansion at Pinewood Toronto Studios is about more than just adding three more sound stages. It will give the Port Lands property a film and television capacity virtually unmatched anywhere. Last year, the 4.5-hectare Port Land site played host to the two biggest budget movies in Canadian film production history, the remake of Total Recall, starring Colin Farrell, immediately followed by Mexican filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro’s sci-fi monster epic, Pacific Rim, set for release in July, 2013. “With the expansion, we’ll be able to host a Total Recall and a Pacific Rim simultaneously, which is a big improvement over what we could do in the past. It’s huge. It gives us a big advantage,” said Pinewood Toronto president and CEO Blake Steels.
