The former Dell manufacturing facility in Castletroy has been acquired by Ardmore Studios, who hope to see the 180,000 square feet space fitted with workshops and prop areas, a sound studio, plus hair and make up and costume departments.
A planning decision, which would see Limerick as a major new hub for Hollywood movies, is due on November 12.
Members of Limerick City and County Council will be asked to approve plans for the project at a future meeting. Key players from Ardmore Studios will run the new Troy Studios operation in Castletroy.
