It’s time again to look for the lights, cameras, action!

Filming is set to begin on “Marauders,” the bank theft thriller starring Bruce Willis (Die Hard,” “The SixthSense,” “Armageddon”), Dave Bautista (“Gaurdians of the Galaxy”) and Christopher Meloni (“Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” “Man of Steel,” “42”) and Johnathon Schaech (“That Thing You Do”).

Kentucky is upping the ante in its quest to attract more movies.

Governor Steve Beshear signed House Bill 340 into law this month, increasing the income tax credit from 20 percent to 30 percent; and giving added incentives for filming in certain counties and for using Kentucky labor.

  Two more movies are ready to start filming in Greater Cincinnati. Over the years, several movie crews have shot films in and around our region, giving locals plenty of opportunities to get a taste of Hollywood and grab a few seconds of fame on film as extras. But how do casting directors decide who to put in a movie?

The movie business is bringing millions to the Tri-State, according to a new study by University of Cincinnati economists.

Carol, Miles Ahead and the A&E television series Renovation Row, all filmed in 2014, were responsible for adding $45.9 million in direct and indirect spending to the local economy.  The Economic Impact Study was commissioned by the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky Film Commission.
