Hugh Jackman movie ‘Real Steel’ to film in Michigan
Detroit — Hugh Jackman is expected to star in a futuristic drama about robot boxing filmed in Michigan titled “Real Steel.”
The Michigan Film Office says the movie has applied for the state’s film incentives and those were approved. It’s expected to be filmed primarily in Michigan at locations in the Detroit area and across the state.
Filming in Michigan is to begin in June. It’s scheduled for a 2011 release.
Michigan has been drawing more moviemakers since 2008, when tax incentives that are among the nation’s most generous took effect.From The Detroit News: http://detnews.com/article/20100125/ENT02/1250391/Hugh-Jackman-movie–Real-Steel–to-film-in-Michigan#ixzz0ePkGM6pg
