Katrina Continues to Hurt

USAToday has a brief article about the uncertain fate of a future film studio in Louisiana. A representative for Sunset-Gower Studios, stated the project was somewhere between "slowed down" and "dead." The site was to be located in the Algiers-Gretna riverfront area. It just comes down to the fact that $20 million is too much to spend on a studio in a location that is still devastated by disaster.

Of course, Rocky VI and Rambo IV have been greenlit and Madonna wants to direct. The film industry has no fear of investing in disasters, as long as they are created by ego. --Terrence Ryan
