Russell Crowe to build northern NSW film studio

It looks like the NSW north coast could soon become home to some of the biggest film stars, with legendary actor Russell Crowe pledging to build a massive movie production studio in the humble region.

It’s understood the studio will be built in Coffs Harbour at the Pacific Bay Resort, which would allow actors to reside with their families whilst filming is underway.

According to the Daily Telegraph, the NSW Government is expected to officially confirm the exciting news on Wednesday morning.


The announcement is expected to be made at the resort by Deputy Premier and minister for regional NSW John Barilaro and Crowe himself.

The Oscar-winning actor has long called the north coast home with a property at nearby Nana Glen.

Speculation now surrounds whether or not Crowe’s new psychological thriller film Poker Face will be shot at the Coffs Harbour studio.

All will be revealed later this morning.
