Bond studios want 200m revamp

James Bond

The British film studios where Charlie and Chocolate Factory and Casino Royale were made have unveiled plans for a massive 200m revamp.

Pinewood studios want to extend their Buckinghamshire site by building loads of new sets - including an American High School campus.

Studio bosses are hoping it will boost the British film industry by getting more people to make movies in the UK.

Now they just have to wait and see if they will be allowed to start building.

Pinewood first became famous in the 1950s and 1960s as home to the James Bond films.
