Via Southeast Missourian – 20th Century Fox’s production of the feature film “Gone Girl” in Cape Girardeau could result in a state tax credit of $2.5 million for the studio under a state program designed to increase Hollywood’s activity in Missouri.
The tax credits the studio could benefit from will come through the Department of Economic Development’s Film Production Tax Credit program, which has offered tax credits for film production in Missouri since 1999. According to the agency’s website, state tax credits are issued to qualified film production companies for up to 35 percent of their in-state expenditures in an effort to boost film production in Missouri. The entire tax-credit program is capped at $4.5 million.
On a related note, Neil Patrick Harris noted following the Emmy’s that he was headed for Missouri to being filming.
