Film production company making the move to Surrey

May 29, 2016 by  

Surrey’s bustling film and television production sector will soon be home to another production company.

Skydance Media, which produced several recent blockbusters including the last two ‘Mission Impossible’ movies, has announced that it plans on setting up shop in Newton. It will repurpose a former printing plant into a studio that will be able to accommodate a staff of as many as 400.

The information about the production company’s decision came as part of Mayor Linda Hepner’s annual state of the city address. She remarked that:

“Surrey is a city full of possibilities and is primed to be a centre for technology and innovation for the region.”

Mayor Hepner further went on to say that this helps to show the world that Surrey is a great place to do business, and that it has a huge potential for economic growth. She hoped that this will be just one of many business’s that chose to call Surrey home. When one does so, it can provide spin-off benefits to other enterprises, such printing companies, which can be called on to provide it with a range of goods and services.

The location for the new studio will be in the former Kennedy Heights printing plant at Scott Road and 88 Avenue. At one time, it produced both the province and the Vancouver Sun, but it shut down production last year.
