are you serious?
Arnold filmed here in the 80s.
Julia Roberts and Sleeping with the Enemy.
Travolta did that movie 3 or 4 years ago,much of it in Hampstead and Wilmington; in fact he stayed on Figure 8.
George C Scott & Firestarter.
And all of that without incentives.
So now, they will offer, I believe $25,000,000 in incentives for this movie; it will impact the area for a few months and woosh be gone.
An Academy Award Winner was just filming, within the past 2 weeks, at D & E motors and the old Brunsiwck hospital. No big incentive plan.
No telling what Smiley would have offered to get this one signed before an election year.
Short term impact from major dollars. Wouldn't these dollars be better spent to bring in long term jobs and businesses?
