New film studios plan revealed for High Wycombe

Stage Fifty has submitted a temporary planning application for Wycombe Film Studios to support a Hollywood feature film that will start shooting this year.

An application for a permanent studio will follow later this year. Subject to planning, a phased build for the remaining stages will take place over the next 18 months.

It will be Stage Fifty’s third site in the UK, following the launch of its studios in Farnborough and Winnersh.

Stage Fifty said the studios will support around 600 temporary jobs during the construction phase.

James Enright, CEO of Stage Fifty, said: “We’re excited to reveal our plans for Wycombe Film Studios. We’ve been working behind the scenes for two years to ensure we have everything in place to build a world-class film studio with all the elements for success.

“We’ve received temporary planning approval to build one stage and workshops and have submitted further applications for three more stages to support a major feature film that will start shooting this year. We’ll apply for full planning permission to create the long-term permanent studio in the coming months.”
