Michigan's Future in Film

Blogger: Chrystal Gowens | October 1, 2008

Anyone who lives in Michigan and is at all familiar with the economic status should’ve been happy to hear that our state was a possible “place of interest” for Warner Bros, Co.’s new studio development plans.

Since the 4.7 million square foot Ford plant in Wixom, Michigan was closed (May of 2007), it has stood empty just waiting for someone to take an interest in it again. Although Warner Bros, Co. claims it was simply an exploratory visit when they scouted out the location on August 18th, it sparked conversation about the possibility of the company turning the old plant into a film studio.

After all, this wouldn’t be the first time that Warner Bros, Co. has turned a non-feature related building into a place to film their movies. The Harry Potter motion pictures were shot in an old air base in England and all the fans know how well those turned out.
