Some secondary shooting locations
in Detroit Michigan have been nixed due to lack of confirmation on tax incentives.
"They were all set to come here," said Chris Baum of Film Detroit, a division of the Detroit Metro Convention & Visitors Bureau. When producers couldn't get confirmation that they would still qualify for the incentives, they decided to pull out of the state, Baum said.
Tom Moisides got his call on Saturday morning: His services as a location scout for “The Avengers” would no longer be needed.
Moisides, 39, of Michigan-based Colony Films said he has been working since November as a location scout on the film, a big-buzz superhero adaptation whose cast will include Robert Downey Jr., Samuel L. Jackson and Scarlett Johansson. The job could have been a $100,000 gig if "The Avengers" shoot lasted through October, as he was told to expect.
Oh, well at least Detroit is getting the Robocop statue.
