CINCINNATI, Ohio (WDTN) — A very popular director is expected to begin filming an upcoming movie in Cincinnati, but unlike most of his movies, there’s no twist to this.
On July 31, the state of Ohio announced $36 million in tax credits for motion pictures were awarded to eight recipients.
One of them, “Trap,” has M. Night Shyamalan listed as its director and writer on IMDB. It’s expected production starting date of August 2024.
Shyamalan is best known for his work as director of “The Sixth Sense,” “Signs,” “Unbreakable” and a variety of others.
A representative from the Ohio Department of Development confirmed to 2 NEWS that the upcoming movie has Cincinnati listed as a region of production.
“Film impacts our communities in more ways than just providing entertainment,” Ohio Department of Development Director Lydia Mihalik said. “Projects awarded today will help highlight Ohio’s unique communities, promote the arts, and bring creative jobs to our state.”
Two television series, three mini-series and three feature films received credits for Fiscal Year 2023.
