Film production studios coming to Detroit, Pontiac

Associated Press | February 3, 2009

DETROIT - Michigan's film incentive program has lured two production studios to the state, including one in Detroit that will focus on computer-generated and animation work.

Michigan Economic Development Corp. spokesman Mike Shore says the Detroit Center Studios could create 700 permanent jobs and attract more film projects to the state.

It will be housed in the former MGM Grand temporary casino just west of downtown.

A state tax credit of $16.9 million over 12 years has been approved for the venture.
