Jessica Biel and Patrick Wilson head to Cincinnati
The Greater Cincinnati Film Commission has announced another major motion picture that plans to begin shooting in Cincinnati through winter 2014.
"The Blunderer", starring Jessica Biel and Patrick Wilson, directed by Andy Goddard and produced by Christine Vachon and Ted Hope of Killer Films, is an adaptation of the Patricia Highsmith novel.
Having already experienced shooting in the region with a previous feature, the well-established production duo will shoot the film entirely in Greater Cincinnati, known as The Queen City.
Vachon stated: "We had a great experience in Cincinnati on our film Carol. The film commission, the rebate, locations, infrastructure and welcoming people of Cincinnati, brought us back a second time within one year."
The Blunderer will create hundreds of jobs and will undoubtedly generate a significant economic impact. So far, a plethora of productions have spent a combined total of $26m dollars in the state, which has doubtlessly made a powerful impact on the Ohio economy.
On June 6, 2012, Ohio Governor John Kasich signed legislation that increased the tax incentives on offer in Ohio, doubling from $10m a year to $20m a year.
"We are maintaining sustainable work for locals. This industry has had a tremendous impact on the local economy and we are excited to have repeat business with Killer Films." said Kristen Schlotman, Executive Director of the Greater Cincinnati Film Commission.
Filming on The Blunderer begins Nov. 17 and wraps Dec 21.
