Producers of the James Bond films will be forced to move out of the franchise's iconic home at Pinewood Studios in the U.K. if a bid to extend the site fails, according the facility's boss.

The owners of the movie studios in Buckinghamshire, England have applied to local planning officials for permission to extend the site across an area of adjacent land.

A decision on the bid is due to be announced on Wednesday (15May13) and Pinewood chief executive Ivan Dunleavy has warned it will have a huge impact on the facility if planning permission is refused.

He tells British newspaper The Guardian, "If we as a sector don't respond to the growing demand (for bigger and better facilities) then someone else will. (The Bond producers) have to be financially responsible. If they get a better proposal elsewhere than the U.K. can mount then they have to look after their business as well."

All but two of the 23 007 movies - including last year's (13) record-breaking blockbuster Skyfall, starring Daniel Craig - were shot at Pinewood. Other films shot there include Superman, Full Metal Jacket, and 1996's Mission: Impossible.
