...or shoot to kill at.

We all dream of making the big one, and preferably at a killer movie set. So I've starting compiling a list of movie sets that I would love to film at. Finding some of these require some research and are not always so easy to find on the Internet, so please, feel free to add to this list. Be sure to include a link.

Disney’s newest studio, located in Newhall, California. This studio is eye popping. Just look at the detail in these movie sets. Incredible!

Melody Ranch. One of the best studio sets for westerns.

Ramoji Film City, listed in the “Guinness Book of World Records” as the largest film studio in the world. This place is huge and the sets are outrageous. Located in Hyderabad City, India.

Four Aces. If you want to film a “On the Road” and “Off the Beaten Path” film that requires a roadside motel with diner and gas station, this might be the place for you. Located in Palmdale, California.

Need Middle Eastern, or Iraqi village set? Check out Blue Could Movie Ranch, located in Santa Clarita, California.
