Grady Ranch In Marin: Officials Scramble To Keep Proposed George Lucas Studio Across The Bay

Posted: Updated:

SAN RAFAEL, Calif. -- Marin County officials are scrambling to convince filmmaker George Lucas not to abandon plans to build a sprawling movie studio north of San Francisco, but the company says it's too late.

Lucasfilm Ltd. shocked the community Tuesday when it announced it was scrapping the Grady Ranch project, citing regulatory delays and bitter opposition from homeowners.

The company behind the "Star Wars" movies said it would build the digital media studio elsewhere and sell the Lucas Valley property to a developer interested in building low-income housing.

But company spokeswoman Lynne Hale says it's "too late" for Lucasfilm to reconsider the decision because it is already behind in its production schedule.
