Filmmaker Craig Brewer Says Memphis Is Losing Movie Business

Posted on: 11:18 am, August 2, 2013, by , updated on: 11:34am, August 2, 2013

It’s no secret Memphis has been losing business for years to other states that provide movie-makers with bigger incentives.

Craig Brewer knows that first hand.

He wanted to make his 2011 film “Footloose” here.

That didn’t happen.

But in a recent issue of the Memphis Flyer, Craig also points out Memphis is also on the losing side of competition within the state.
