Now Providence?

ABC6 in Rhode Island is reporting that Providence RI is joining the list of cities nationwide that are trying to lure film work. According to state sources, Rhode Island pulled in $100 Million in movie production dollars last year, and Providence wants a piece of it. To do this the city is creating a new office to coordinate, and schmooze producers.

Currently a live action version of the cartoon "Underdog" is being shot in the city. Producers pointed out that the current tax breaks were a big part of the draw.

Any move that lowers the cost of film production is a good thing for consumers. More cities, get in to this racket. --Terrence Ryan
