Illinois film revenues climb

4 February 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Because of Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich's recent initiatives to revive Illinois' ailing film industry, revenues in the Illinois Film Office are expected to be up 100% in 2004 from 2003 while film production is expected to increase to an estimated $50 million in 2004, from $25.6 million in 2003. The film office credits such films as Warner Bros. Pictures' Ocean's 12 and Paramount Pictures' The Weather Man, which are expected to bring in $20 million each to the local economy. "Restoring the film and television industry in Illinois is important to my administration, and I am pleased to see that the outreach and tax incentives to the entertainment community have been a successful first step in bringing production back to Illinois," said Blagojevich in a statement. "In the future, movies that are made about Chicago will be shot in Chicago and not Toronto, which is great news for the working men and women of our production community." »
