Leading Hollywood producers and financiers believe a new €125m film and television studio complex in Dublin has the potential to become the biggest in Europe.

US-based producer Gary Levinsohn, whose production credits include Saving Private Ryan, Jack Reacher and The Patriot, told the Sunday Independent that Grange Castle Media Park would be a game changer for the Irish film industry.

Levinsohn, who is an investor in the project, also said Brexit meant that Ireland was in a "sweet spot".
