Director Says He Wants To Grow Miss. Film Industry

Director Tate Taylor says he wants to make his native Mississippi a place where people can build careers with steady work in the movie business.
He filmed "The Help" in the state in 2010. And he announced Aug. 26 that he'll make a feature film about singer James Brown, with plans to shoot "every frame" in Mississippi.
Work is set for November and December in and around Natchez and for January and February in and around Jackson.
Taylor says studios will shoot movies where it makes the most economic sense, and he believes Mississippi's film incentives will help the state attract more projects.
Lawmakers updated the incentives earlier this year, with rebates of up to $10 million per project for nationally distributed feature films, documentaries and TV shows.
