Bruce Willis heading to Cincinnati
Cincinnati, Ohio is gearing up to welcome major Hollywood stars Bruce Willis, Dave Bautista and Christopher Meloni later this month for filming on new film Marauders.
Directed by Steven C. Miller, the project follows an FBI agent on the trail of robbers who give the stolen funds of a bank to charities. Willis plays the suspicious bank owner.
The script was written by Michael Cody and Chris Sivertson with Lydia Hull, Tyler Olson, Christopher Bowen and Danny A. Abeckaser rounding out the cast.
Kristen Erwin Schlotman, executive director of the Greater Cincinnati Film Commission, said on the notable commission: “We are thrilled to land another movie to be filmed in Greater Cincinnati. As more details about the production become available, we will release them.”
Ohio offers strong film tax credits to reimburse productions with up to 35% of wages and 25% of in-state spending. The total for all movies is capped at $20m each year. A company must spend at least $300,000 in the state to qualify for the incentive.
The movie follows an impressive slate that has come through the state of Ohio recently including Carol featuring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, I am Wrath starring John Travolta and The Blunderer with Jessica Biel and Patrick Wilson.
