Dark Horse Studios, based in Willmington, North Carolina, is expanding. The third and fourth soundstages are currently under construction, according to North Carolina's WECT News.

The expansion will feature sound stages with a footprint of over 40,000 square feet. They will be column-free and equipped with soundproofing and climate control, ensuring an immersive and conducive filmmaking environment. 

The studio is also adding amenities for filmmakers, including lighting and grip rental services from industry gold standard Cinelease, and heavy equipment from specialty provider Herc Entertainment Services.

This support system will assure filmmakers have an efficient production journey throughout Dark Horse Studios including its annex, 10 minutes from the main campus. 

North Carolina’s 25% rebate on qualifying spend has proven a draw for filmmakers. Production to film in the US state include Paramount's Scream 5, Universal's Halloween Kills, and Amazon Prime Studios'  The Summer I Turned Pretty.
