4 more films, video game to be made in Ohio

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The entertainment industry will make four more movies and a video game in Ohio, with all of the projects taking advantage of a state motion picture tax credit.

The Ohio Department of Development says the new film industry work will be worth more than $17.1 million for the state's economy.

The new movie projects include "Confession," a murder mystery with a cast that will include actor Danny Glover and Oscar-winning actress Melissa Leo; and "The Yank," a romantic comedy that will shoot in the Cleveland area and may star comic actor Fred Willard.

The video game is called Galaxy Command and will involve players competing for the largest empire in a vast virtual universe. It will be produced in the Akron area utilizing a $116,000 tax credit.
