Did you get excited there for a moment, New Yorkers? Ha!
Now, we're hearing that James Cameron and 20th Century Fox will be working on motion capture photography and high-tech production of the Avatar sequels out of a Manhattan Beach facility.
The studio is MASSIVE at 580,000 sq ft with 15 soundstages!
Here's what entertainment office specialist Jim Jacobsen of Industry Partners had to say about the new space:
“Given the two different requirements — needing soundstages like he had before and office space, and the fact that the Hercules Campus has started demolition, it’d make sense he’d be interested in a studio operation like Manhattan Beach Studios. 90,000 square feet of space on the Westside is very difficult to put together.”
Sounds like it will be exciting times in Manhattan Beach pret-ty soon!
