In April we reported that the Fantastic Four Reboot will be filmed in Vancouver. That is no longer the case as the Fantastic Four production is leaving Vancouver for Louisiana and will be taking away $100 million in revenue and countless hours of employment from B.C.
This is another blow to the movie industry in Vancouver. Will others be next?

The Fantastic Four reboot has moved production to Louisiana because of that state’s lucrative tax incentives.
The BC Liberals are being blamed for the loss of another production. Their lack of acknowledgement for what this industry brings to the city is at the forefront of the Save BC Film campaign.
