What do Deadpool, The Flash and Yellowjackets have in common? They’re all successful productions developed in our backyard by Vancouver Film Studios. 

The independent film and television studio has been serving both international and North American producers for 24 years with its construction mills, office spaces and 13 sound stages. Major content and media companies like Disney, Warner Bros., 20th Century Studios, Netflix and Apple have called the studio home for a long time. It was also one of the first studios in the world to become B-Corp certified.

Today, McLean Group of Companies announced that the studio (along with its affiliates Pacific Backlot, which provides lighting and production equipment, and Signal Systems, which provides communications services) has been sold to Hackman Capital Partners (HCP), a private real estate investment and operating firm in Los Angeles. HCP owns a number of independent film and television studios like Vancouver Film Studios, including Basin Media Studios in Toronto and Eastbrook Studios in London.

“Vancouver Film Studios has been a core company in our family business for 25 years and we are confident HCP will take what we have built to even greater heights,” said Jason McLean, CEO of the McLean Group of Companies, in a release. “Their expertise in the film industry combined with our exceptional team make for an all-star cast.”
