GENESEE COUNTY, Michigan -- Could Flint be in for part of a $80-million slice of the Hollywood pie coming to Michigan?

Local officials are definitely star-struck by the movies and the economic development they bring. Now, they're dazzled by the prospect of a multi-million dollar development deal that could bring several film and production facilities to Michigan.

State leaders are expected to make an official announcement as early as February or March, said Anthony Wenson, chief operating officer of the Michigan Film Office.
