'Krypton' - Production Confirmed for Belfast Harbour Studios
21 Jul 2017 :
As reported by Northern Ireland Screen, the Superman prequel series, ‘Krypton’, a one-hour series from Phantom Four in association with Warner Horizon Scripted Television for the SYFY channel, will commence pre-production in Belfast this month with a shoot date of late summer.

Set two generations before the destruction of the legendary Man of Steel’s home planet, ‘Krypton’ follows Superman’s grandfather (Cameron Cuffe, The Halcyon) — whose House of El was ostracized and shamed — as he fights to redeem his family’s honour and save his beloved world from chaos.

Based on DC characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, ‘Krypton’is executive produced by David S. Goyer (Man of Steel; Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice; The Dark Knight trilogy) through his Phantom Four banner. Damian Kindler (Sleepy Hollow) will also serve as executive producer and showrunner.

In addition to Cuffe, the show also stars Georgina Campbell (Broadchurch), Elliot Cowan (Da Vinci’s Demons), Ann Ogbomo (World War Z), Rasmus Hardiker (Your Highness), Wallis Day (Will), Aaron Pierre (Tennison) with Ian McElhinney (Game of Thrones).

It was just over a year ago that plans for the new purpose built studios were unveiled to the global screen industry at Cannes.  The £20 million development owned by Belfast Harbour is set on an 8 acre site on the 340 acre Giant’s Park.  The complex consists of two film studios, workshops which will be used for set construction and separate production offices to accommodate art departments, dressing rooms and wardrobe functions.  Given the strong demand for such high quality space the scheme has also been future-proofed to accommodate additional studio and workshop space on an adjoining two-acre site.

 

The completion of the media complex cements Northern Ireland’s position as the best catered for region in film production after London.

Richard Williams, CEO, Northern Ireland Screen, said: “We are delighted to welcome Warner Horizon to Northern Ireland.  Securing ‘Krypton’ is a real coup for us and establishes our position as a world-class filming location with a local and highly skilled crew-base with vast experience.  The construction of the new studios by Belfast Harbour has added tremendous value to our overall proposition.”

David Dobbin, Chairman of Belfast Harbour said: “Welcoming our first tenant to Belfast Harbour Studios is very exciting for us. Working with Northern Ireland Screen and hosting visits from many production companies has shown there is a need for a facility like this. Supporting the regional economy is one of our strategic goals and enhancing Northern Ireland’s media offering is very much part of this. We look forward to working with Warner Horizon and further enhancing Northern Ireland’s reputation in the film industry.”
