Panic over for Paramount in Murcia?
06 October 2010 @ 19:53
After yesterday's news about Jesus Semper, the man with the "brains" behind the Paramount Murcia project, being accused of all sorts of illegal financial activities, it seems that it's not such a problem when it comes to the Paramount Murcia project going ahead.
Although Semper's company, Santa Monica Financial Services, is the main party behind the acquisition of the funding for the park, it is now a joint company, called Proyectos Emblemáticos Murcianos, between Santa Monica (80%), the local development institute (10%) and the regional Murcia government (10%).
So although the "main man" is in a bit of bother, the actual company driving the project forward isn't just Semper.
The word on the street is that what happened yesterday isn't going to affect the future of the Paramount Pictures theme park in Murcia.
Mind you, we've not had any comments from Paramount themselves yet so we'll see, but things aren't really as bad as they seemed yesterday.
And by the way, it appears that Grupo Fuertes has entered into an agreement regarding the location of the park....which is to be Alhama! No official confirmation yet, just some insider knowledge. Let's see if he's right.
