After hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans, several productions moved to North West Looozeeeanner, and set up shop in Shreveport. They are still here. Jack Black is somewhere around here shooting "Year One" (1). Other movies being shot are, "Tekken"(2), an "Untitled Ice Cube" movie and "Soul Men"(3).
"Welcome Home Rosco Jenkins" was shot here, at least in part, as was "The Mist", and several others over the last two years or so.
Filming movies has become a more or less permanent industry here, though there doesn't appear to be swarms of paparazzi or groupie cults popping up, yet.
(1) Comedy based on "Genesis", staring Jack Black. Details are scant, but it sounds like it's along the same line as "The Life of Brian", and based on a script by Harold Ramis, who is also the executive producer.
(2) Live action "Beat-Em-Up" movie based upon the video game.
(3)Soul Men is the story of two back-up singers that get back together for a tour after their former band leader dies. Samuel Jackson and Bernie Mac star.
