I hope that it was just a bad joke, because I refuse to believe you are that ignorant.

Firstly "of Nigerian decent" does not an African make. No other countries have idiotic 교포 ideas (someone of korean heritage born abroad who doesn't speak korean is not korean). Bet half the homicides in 서울 are fan death..
And in answer to the homocide rate, Seoul is the safest city I've ever been in, perhaps they have a higher rate of homocides (suicides/alcohol related deaths are often put down to other causes for shame reasons) but a lot less will be actual murders and any other comparable crime rate will be less than London. If you leave your wallet and phone on a bar and come back an hour later it will still be there. But lets forget the racist korean..

They will be built, but the current buildings on site need to be emptied and demolished first.

If they invested in it here like they do in the states, then Hollywood would have been knocked off its perch long ago... we've already proved that our music and literature is on par if not better.
Totally agree with you, considering the fact that movies such as the Avengers 2 & Star Wars Episode VII are due to go into production here should give government officials a clue as to how successful the film industry is. They aren't coming here just for tax incentives, there is a lot of talented craftsmen, technicians and actors etc.

Warner Bros now have a permanent studio base here now, so it is definitely going in the right direction. But the government needs to wake up and stop pathetic small-timers potentially ruining job and industry prospects.

London is the pinnacle of post production.

70% of Hollywood movies are actually put together in London.

Pinewood should be expanded. London is a hotbed for film and television crews. 3rd only to New York and LA and catching up every year. The film production capacity will be huge in years to come and the city will become world reknowned when the Paramount Pictures theme park opens.

Pinewood's most noticeable successes ...

All of the James Bond Movies
The Hobbit
Oliver Twist
Skyfall
Prometheus
Superman
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
Les Miserables
The Iron Lady
Alien
Batman
X-Men First Class
Captain America
Santa Claus: The Movie
Harry Potter
Kick Ass
Pirates of The Caribbean
The Dark Knight
Tomb Raider
Bourne Ultimatum
Sherlock Holmes
Clash of The Titans
Full Metal Jacket

Some production list is that.

The appeal looks inevitable. A successful appeal? Depends whether the government secretary goes with his Bucks pals or with common sense.
