Warner Bros., a major American movie studio, has decided to invest US$4 billion to build a theme park in the Misari area of Hanam, Gyeonggi Province, a key member of the presidential Transition Committee said on Thursday. This committee member said that Warner Bros. chairman Barry M. Meyer and executive vice president John Schulman are expected to attend the inauguration ceremony of president-elect Lee Myung-bak on Feb. 25. The executives are visiting Seoul to sign a letter of intent to build the Warner Bros. Theme Park on a 3.63 million sq.m lot in Misari, the committee member said.

I wonder if there will be time when Paramount and Warner will return to the US theme park business? They can probably snag some SF properties on the cheap. *** This post was edited by DBJ 2/15/2008 1:32:45 PM ***
Just to put that in perspective, that's approx. 1.5 square miles, about 3 times the size of King's Island or Cedar Point.

Warner Brothers... does that mean we could finally see a DC Comics area on the IOA or Disney level?
So who's left? 20th Century Fox? ;)
But come to think of it, there was Movie world. Duh!

Fox launched a park in Sydney around 2000 which was an abysmal failure. I'm not sure you could call it a park though; it had one major (Titanic) ride and a handful of quasi-attractions and a ridiculous ticket price.
The Paramount park is to be built by Samsung, is it not? Under license as Moosh suggested.

But, what I had seen on the Paramount park was that it was a water park along with a movie studio, so we'll see.
