Grange Castle Media Park, a €125m film and TV studio complex planned for Dublin, will target films and streaming platform productions with budgets of around €100m plus.

Irish movie producer Alan Moloney, who was executive producer of Brooklyn, starring Saoirse Ronan, said that the facility would be able to accommodate three or four large-scale projects at a time. This would suggest that productions worth several hundred-million euro could be made there annually.

"Our ambition is to be the best studio in the world, we want the very best film makers and the very best broadcasters and programming," he told the Sunday Independent in a Zoom call with several of the project's high-profile backers.
