Twickenham Film Studios, which was due to celebrate its centenary next year (13), will be gradually wound down by June (12).
Gerald Krasner, who is handling the administration, reveals to the BBC the business has lost money over the past three years and adds: "I doubt it will be retained as a film studio. We are selling it on. Everyone will then be paid in full."
Other movies shot at the studio include sci-fi classic Blade Runner, The Italian Job, A Fish Called Wanda, An American Werewolf in London, and Roman Polanski's Repulsion.
