U.K. studios facility group Pinewood Shepperton will open a studio site in Cardiff, Wales, the group said Monday. The move to open a 180,000-square-foot complex in Wales, the country in which the BBC shoots Doctor Who, follows Pinewood's expansion plans for its site on the outskirts being rejected by the local planning authority. Pinewood Studios Wales will be based at the former Energy Centre building in Wentloog and will form part of the company's global network of facilities. The group is partnering with the Welsh government on the plans.
