The movie "Gone Girl" put Missouri in the cinema spotlight. But the state might not be able to attract other major motion picture companies with the end of the film production tax incentive program.
The program, offered by the Department of Economic Development, began in 1999. Since the program expired last November, Missourians have been concerned that the expiration will prevent revenue and publicity for the state of Missouri.
Film production companies that qualified could earn a credit up to 35% of the expended amount.
