Movie Stars in Destin

By  | 

Movie stars will be in this Florida Panhandle resort city this weekend for a shoot.

Matthew McConaughey, Terry Bradshaw and Sara Jessica Parker are headed to Destin to shoot several scenes for an upcoming movie called "Failure to Launch."

The last major motion picture to film here was Jim Carrey's 1998 film, "The Truman Show."

In March, the Bay County Tourist Development Council approved a resolution supporting a request to increase Florida's incentive program for moviemakers from the current budget year's $2.5 million to $4.5 million.

Film producers can seek a 15 percent reimbursement of in-state expenditures if they spend at least $850,000 in Florida. The reimbursement is offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
