Wilmington, NC – Movie productions are now filming at EUE Screen Gems new studios in Atlanta.

The Wilmington-based movie studio says it opened the sound stages to take advantage of Georgia's 30% film incentives.

North Carolina has a 25% incentives package that caps rebates. The North Carolina House is expected to vote on a bill next week that hikes the rebate and removes the salary cap.

Those opposed to film incentives say Hollywood will never be satisfied with the deal it's getting.

Screen Gems officials insist that the Atlanta studios will help draw business to its 50-acre complex in Wilmington.
