AN entire Warner Bros film is to be based in Glasgow, creating hundreds of jobs in the city.

Glasgow City Council has approved a £150,000 Filming Incentive Grant to support an entire major feature film production, the first time this will take place in the city.

The Warner Bros production will employ local crew and talent where possible, with between 250 to 350 crew employed daily (some days reaching 1000) and the opportunity of future projects on a similar scale coming to the city will be increased. 

The Warner Bros portfolio includes the DC Universe catalogue, with the city already seen as providing the ideal location for producing these types of movies with the recent production of The Flash and The Batman in the city.

The economic potential of such productions being based in the city is shown by BFI (British Film Institute) figures that say film productions with a £60-£100 million budget have an average daily spend in excess of £750,000, and projects with a £100m budget spend more than £1m daily on average.

"What is significant about this support is that it allows the entire production to made in Glasgow – a first for the city – and confirms our place as a location of choice for major productions, and one that can compete with others in the UK and abroad. 

"During this time of economic recovery and renewal, this economic activity is both welcome and important.”
