3 Lead Showgrounds Studio Race

News Corp.’s Fox Filmed Entertainment, Oberon Broadcasters’ Crawfords Prods, and TMS’s Global Television have emerged as the front-runners from a list of 17 interested parties to establish film studios at the Showgrounds, New South Wales, state arts minister Peter Collins said.

Execs hope that the city’s first major studio complex will rival the world-class Gold Coast facilities outside Brisbane.

The selection process began Dec. 9 and a final selection by the state government’s inter-departmental committee is expected “in the next few months,” a source in the minister’s office told Variety.

The source said some of the smaller players that had expressed interest may still play a supporting service-providing role.
