It looks like Miami will be getting a new film studio.
Today, the Miami Omni Community Redevelopment Agency’s board of commissioners approved a contract with EUE/Screen Gems Studios for the development and operation of a movie studio and other related facilities.
The Miami Entertainment Complex will be located in the city’s Media and Entertainment District, just west of the Arsht Performing Arts Center. The MEC is being designed to serve major film productions, television series and independent filmmakers.
“In addition to being a revenue generator for the OMNI CRA and the City of Miami, this facility will be a focal point for providing invaluable experience for our community’s up and coming talent in the entertainment industry, as EUE/Screen Gems Studios has committed to partnering with local educational institutions to create a student intern program,” said Pieter A. Bockweg, executive director of the Miami Omni CRA, in a statement.
