4 more films, video game to be made in Ohio

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The entertainment industry will make four more movies and a video game in Ohio, with all of the projects taking advantage of a state motion picture tax credit.

The Ohio Department of Development says the new film industry work will be worth more than $17.1 million for the state's economy.

The new movie projects include "Confession," a murder mystery with a cast that will include actor Danny Glover and Oscar-winning actress Melissa Leo; and "The Yank," a romantic comedy that will shoot in the Cleveland area and may star comic actor Fred Willard.
