With production gearing up for Zack Snyder's Batman vs. Superman, we have some new behind-the-scenes details.  Michelle Grinnell, public relations manager for the Michigan Film Office, tells Inquisitr that this is the largest production for the state since Oz, the Great and Powerful, and will come in with a budget of $131 million.  Keep in mind that this is only on the production budget, and doesn't include additional locations and post-production costs, which will likely push the budget far beyond $131 million.  Furthermore, the Detroit Free Press reports that the production will use all seven sound studios at the Michigan Motion Picture Studios in Pontiac as well as locations around the state.  The shoot is expected to create 6,000 jobs and bring in $5 million in revenue.  As we previously reported, there will also be some shooting in Yorkville, Illinois, where the production is building a new Kent Farm.  Filming on Batman vs. Superman »
