Our Film Story
U.K.-based Pinewood Studios Group, one of the largest independent studios in the world, signed a $107 million, 10-year deal in April 2013 with River’s Rock LLC to build Pinewood Atlanta Studios, a full-service film and entertainment studio complex in northern Fayette County. The deal earned Fayette County its second “Deal of the Year” honor from the Georgia Economic Developers Association (GEDA). The studios opened in early 2014 and since then have hosted several blockbuster films such as Avengers: Infinity War, Spider-man: Homecoming, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Captain America: Civil War. In addition to Pinewood Atlanta’s 18 stages, two additional studios plan to build in Fayette, which will bring 12 more stages to the county.
