Film Studio to Rise in Reykjavík?

Reykjavík City Council yesterday voted to start negotiations with film director Baltasar Kormákur and his production company Rvk Studios regarding a film studio, which could rise in Gufunes, Reykjavík, RÚV reports.

This was announced in a press release from the City of Reykjavík.

Last summer, Baltasar expressed his wish to purchase part of the fertilizer factory, which used to operate in Gufunes, with the intent of constructing a filming facility there.

Negotiations are also planned with the Icelandic Container Company, a waste management company, regarding its departure from the area, which is in accordance with a rental agreement, expiring at the end of 2018.
