Revived Film Industry Brings Stars Back to State

A revived film industry has brought a bunch of A-list stars to the Chicago area where they're filming three movies, "Ice Harvest," "Ocean's Twelve" and "The Weather Man."

That means celebrities including George Clooney, Julia Roberts and Catherine Zeta-Jones have either been in Illinois to shoot their scenes or are expected in the next few weeks.

Brenda Sexton of the Illinois Film Office credits a new state tax incentive for filmmakers and efforts to promote the state to Hollywood for the filmmaking revival in Illinois.
