More films coming to Wisconsin

Green Bay will be in the movies.

Lt. Gov. Barbara Lawton joined local leaders Tuesday, as they announced a new facilitating office called "Film Green Bay."

They also unveiled plans to film a science-fiction action thriller there called "Nephilim."

Creator and director Danny Wilson is behind the movie which has a budget of $5.2 million. It's the latest project to get state tax incentives which were first granted this year to producers who make movies and video games with the Badger State in their backgrounds.

The credits are designed to create spending and jobs in places where the movies are shot.

And as we found out this spring, it can also attract some big crowds which showed up to watch Johnny Depp make scenes for the movie "Public Enemies."
