Russell Crowe Launches Pacific Bay Studios in Australia
Leading Australian actor Russell Crowe has announced concrete plans to fulfil his long-held dream of operating a movie studio in northern New South Wales, close to where he has lived for the past 25 years.

Crowe unveiled details of a new facility at Coffs Harbour and told Variety: ”I want the East Coast of Australia to be synonymous with the film industry, globally.” He estimates that the complex could open in three to five years.

The region, which includes picturesque Byron Bay, has been getting a lot of Hollywood attention lately as Australia continues to be a Covid-safe production magnet. It has recently hosted the Amazon Prime and Hulu drama series “Nine Perfect Strangers,” starring Nicole Kidman and Melissa McCarthy, the Netflix comedy “Gods Favorite Idiot,” and the controversial Netflix reality series, “Byron Baes.”

The area boasts pristine coastal and hinterland locations, but it has lacked major studio and post production facilities.
