Sniper Elite dev Rebellion doubles down on film and TV with $100m space in Oxford

Media firm and Sniper Elite developer Rebellion has announced the purchase of a new $100m site in its native Oxford as the company doubles down on its film business.

This 220,000 square foot space - an old printing press just outside of the city - is to be converted into a film studio with 500 new jobs set to be created in the process.

Small screen to big screen

This follows the creation of Rebellion Productions in 2017, which saw the firm announce its intention to do more work in film and TV based on the wealth of IP it owns under the 2000AD banner.

In the past, Rebellion has said it wants to do more with this franchise - with CEO Jason Kingsley OBE (pictured) telling PCGamesInsider.biz that several games based on the goliath series were in the works, as well as a number of other media projects.

Rebellion has already announced a partnership with Duncan Jones, director of WarCraft, Source Code, Mute and Moon fame, to make a film based on the Rogue Trooper IP.
