COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The state says movies, TV shows and commercials shot in Ohio since 2010 have contributed more than $205 million to Ohio's economy and employed more than 19,000 Ohioans with the help of tax credits.
The Ohio Film Office says it provided more than $52 million in credits to the 44 productions. The credits are aimed at boosting Ohio in the competition among states to lure shoots.
Local communities also benefit economically from the productions that often employ hundreds of Ohioans.
Films to be shot in northeast Ohio include "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" in Cleveland and "Underdogs" in Canton. "Crooked Tree" will be filmed in southeast Ohio's Hocking Hills.
"The Tribunal" and "The Do Over" are slated for Dayton in southwest Ohio. "In Other Words" will be shot in Columbus.
