#BelfastLough - Work has already begun on a major new film studio lot on the shores of Belfast Lough.

According to the Belfast Telegraph, Belfast-based RPP Architects are drawing up plans for the North Foreshore Film Studios located at Giant's Park on the waterfront.

Newry firm O'Hare & McGovern has been contracted to construct the £20 million (€25.7 million) project that will comprise a sound stage and two studios with production offices.

As previously reported on Afloat.ie, the development aims to capitalise on Northern Ireland's increasing popularity as a filming location for films and TV series – most notably the worldwide hit Game of Thrones.

The Belfast Telegraph has much more on the story HERE.
