Budapest, May 9, 2011 (MTI-ECONEWS) – Hungary’s Korda Studios on Monday said its capacity is fully booked until the end of 2011.
All facilities have been reserved for the remainder of 2011 since March, “exceeding prior expectations”, the studios said. Sales of spaces for 2012 were begun in April, it added.
Two big television productions are in pre-production at the studios: Showtime’s The Borgias, which has returned for production of its second season, and the USD 43m miniseries World Without End, based on the novel by Ken Follett.
Korda Studios will open a HUF 1.19bn tourist attraction in June. The Korda Filmpark will feature a museum dedicated to the work of the Korda brothers, an interactive filmmaking exhibit and a restaurant. The attraction is expected to draw 50,000 visitors in its first year.
Korda Studios was awarded a HUF 595m grant from the New Hungary Development Plan for the Korda Filmpark.
Korda Studios is in its fifth year of operation.
