The Celtic Group takes over Raleigh Studios Baton Rouge in Louisiana
The Celtic Group has taken over Raleigh Studios Baton Rouge in southern Louisiana and the filming facility, housed within the Celtic Media Centre, will be known as The Celtic Studios. Fox’s reboot of the Fantastic Four franchise is scheduled to shoot there in the coming months.
“We thank Raleigh for their years of service and appreciate their participation in helping us establish the Celtic Media Centre as a world-class facility for filmmakers,” said Celtic Group Chairman and CEO Michael O’Connor.
“The Celtic Group looks forward to beginning a new chapter in motion picture production in Louisiana and Mississippi. Celtic Studios will now offer the same level of service and professionalism found on our campus wherever productions might need equipment and assistance throughout our region, and the Celtic Group will continue to connect productions with Louisiana tax credit buyers.”
As Raleigh Studios Baton Rouge, the facility hosted major productions like Peter Berg’s action movie Battleship, Tom Cruise’s sci-fi Oblivion and war movie Battle: Los Angeles, which also doubled various Louisiana locations for California.

Louisiana is one of the top production centres in the US because of its appealing blend of locations, studio facilities and a 30% uncapped filming incentive.
Steve McQueen’s stirring true-life drama 12 Years a Slave shot on location in and around New Orleans and in the coming months the state will host filming for dinosaur sequel Jurassic World and sci-fi follow-up Terminator 5.
