Word From Detroit

Detroit has long been known as Motor City. It appears that it soon will be called Movie City. The state of Michigan is going all out to entice Hollywood to make their films in Michigan, and their tax cuts and incentives to movie makers seem to be working.

Woody Robertson, who is one of Detroit's leading producers, tells me that the Movie Script that he has been working on for three years has now been Funded and will be distributed (and in the theaters in March 2010) by LIONSGATE Studios, Hollywood.

Woody says that this will be the FIRST ALL MICHIGAN FILM CREW TO EVER BE FUNDED AND DISTRIBUTED BY A MAJOR HOLLYWOOD STUDIO----LIONSGATE, STUDIOS.

And, It will also be the FIRST MAJOR HOLLYWOOD PRODUCTION "WITHOUT" ANY CGI (computer generated effects, as well as NO green-screen filming..... FILM IS NAMED "Shadows in Eden" a HORROR Genre'....

Work on the film has already begun and the first phase will continue
at least thru November. As a direct result of his work on this film, Woody has been offered two-more-films !!

Woody doesn't seem to be familiar with the word, retirement.
