‘Entourage’ Movie Among 31 Projects Approved for California Tax Credits

Yesterday, the California Film Commission announced that the Golden State will be issuing $100 million in tax credits to a group of 30 qualifying projects with the hopes they maintain production in state. Although not all will receive a credit, among the qualifying projects feature film Entourage seems to be leading the way for a bid. Having already obtained the green light from Warner Bros. back in January, the feature version of HBO’s Hollywood-based series was always going to film at least a portion of its big screen debut in California, however now it will be doing it with a 20% tax credit. Based on info provided by its applicants, the Commission estimates the total sum of all projects will spend more than $771 million in state, including more than $290 million in qualified wages, employing around 2,980 cast members, 3,730 crew members and 80,680 extras/stand-ins. Other applicants include MTV’s Teen Wolf series, Justified, The Bundheads and many more.
