A few days ago we reported that Pinewood Studios are potentially expanding to the USA.  Well it seems that the reverse is happening with Industrial Light and Magic.  The effects giant are rumoured to be setting up a base in London UK.  This would tie in with the other strong rumour that Star Wars VII is set to be filmed in the UK too.  The attraction seems to be tax subsidies.

A source " with knowledge of the situation" told The Wrap that the company, owned by LucasFilm, was scouting locations in the Docklands area of East London.
When asked about the situation, Miles Perkins, who is head of corporate communications at Lucasfilm told The Wrap that talks about the future of the company were still taking place.
"We're evaluating a number of different scenarios and doing our due diligence," said Perkins.
Perkins went on to assure that the company's base of operations would remain in California: "The core of our business is here. And there isn't the intention of diminishing that core. That would be suicide.
"The people who make up our brain trust are here, and we have no intention of doing anything to change that."
