COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – An independent movie starring John Travolta is going to be shot in central Ohio.
The action-thriller called “I Am Wrath” will begin filming in Columbus in March.
John Daugherty of the Greater Columbus Film Commission tells The Columbus Dispatch that the movie will have about a $10 million budget, making it one of the bigger projects to come to the city in recent years.
Travolta is portraying a man out for justice after a group of corrupt policemen are unable to catch his wife’s killer.
Daugherty says he got a call in January after producers visited the Columbus area. They picked it over locations in Mississippi. He says Ohio’s motion picture tax incentive was a factor in luring them here.
Filming is expected to last several weeks.
