The London Resort, a global destination theme park due to open in 2024, announced today that it has entered into a new partnership with Paramount Pictures.

The studio joins BBC Studios and ITV Studios, contributing from among their outstanding range of Intellectual Property. The movie studio is home to some of the world's most iconic films including The Godfather, The Italian Job, the Mission: Impossible franchise and, post-apocalyptic hit, A Quiet Place, and will be working with The London Resort to create a range of awe-inspiring experiences.

PY Gerbeau, newly appointed chief executive of London Resort Company Holdings (LRCH), said: "The new partnership with Paramount is fantastic news for everyone. Now the best of Hollywood will be joining the best of British from BBC Studios and ITV Studios, to create amazing and unique experiences for the whole family."

"I am also delighted to join The London Resort and to play my part in helping to create a world-class destination to rival all others. Central to that strategy is to partner with the best brands from across TV, film, music and entertainment. Having Paramount on board is a major step towards realising that ambition," he said.

Kevin Suh, president of Themed Entertainment and Consumer Products for Paramount Pictures, said: "The London Resort represents a truly global resort opportunity and we're delighted to be playing our part in bringing iconic movies to life in truly immersive experiences and rides. We're also delighted, as the most iconic studio in Hollywood, to be sharing our unparalleled catalogue of instantly recognisable films and characters."

The new deal will see Paramount join BBC Studios and ITV Studios, which has licensed its kids brands, in being part of one of the most visited tourist attractions in Europe.

The London Resort is set over 535 acres -- the equivalent of 136 Wembley Stadiums. Three times larger than other UK parks, it will have 200 acres dedicated to rides and experiences and a bespoke entertainment district devoted to a full-suite of hospitality experiences including the provision of thousands of hotel rooms.

Millions of pounds have already been invested in The London Resort, which will be one of the largest construction projects across Europe. Situated just 17 minutes from London, on the Swanscombe Peninsula, Kent, the resort will be a major regional contributor to the UK economy. - TradeArabia News Service
