IRRRB: Movie Incentive Program

Posted at: 12/11/2012 4:32 PM

A bit of Hollywood will be on the agenda at Thursday's IRRRB meeting.

The board will consider a new Film Production Incentive Program, which would reimburse companies up to $500,000 per production.

Commissioner Tony Sertich said that the agency is positioned to bring two film productions to the area in 2013.

One has already been announced. "Thanksgiving at Denny's" is a feature film that is planned for the Range.

The other project is a feature film, but no other details are being disclosed right now, according to Sertich.

The last time a movie was filmed on the Range was when "North Country" came to town in the early 2000s. It made an economic impact of $5 million dollars.

The meeting on Thursday will also be the final one with the current board members.
