Wayne County may be on the verge of landing a $100-million film studio that would create 3,500 jobs and boost metro Detroit's ailing economy, Allen Park city officials announced Tuesday.
"At this point, things are looking very good," said Eric Waidelich, city administrator of Allen Park. "It's a huge project."
He and others involved in the negotiations said they signed confidentiality agreements and could not reveal the name of the company except to note that it involves a Hollywood studio executive with ties to Michigan. They also could not discuss how far along they are in negotiations.
