Lucasfilm Ltd. shocked the community Tuesday when it announced it was scrapping the Grady Ranch project, citing regulatory delays and bitter opposition from homeowners.
The company behind the "Star Wars" movies said it would build the digital media studio elsewhere and sell the Lucas Valley property to a developer interested in building low-income housing.
The Marin Independent Journal reports that county supervisors are offering to help remove regulatory barriers and fight possible lawsuits.
But company spokeswoman Lynne Hale says it's "too late" for Lucasfilm to reconsider the decision because it is already behind in its production schedule.
