GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

The coast is getting a taste of Hollywood over the next month. Crews are in town working on a big motion picture.

If you keep your eyes peeled over the next several weeks here on the coast, you might catch a glimpse of some movie magic. A feature film starring Bruce Willis is setting up shop on the Gulf Coast.

Evidence can be seen in several locations across our area. Cast and crew trailers and equipment trucks are set up in Gulfport and Biloxi. According to Vincent Creel with the city of Biloxi, it's the attractive tax incentives that bring productions like this to our state.

"That's the bait that gets them here. And then once they get here they see the backdrop that we offer for any kind of film that they want to do," said Creel.

A film like this could have a big impact on the state and the coast as a whole. Creel said those in the industry think that this project has the potential of bringing others to our area.

"And then the residual impact of having your community placed before what could be millions of people really around the world. And we think with every film, more and more filmmakers are going to see what we have to offer here in Mississippi," said Creel.

Precious Cargo, starring Bruce Willis, is scheduled to begin filming soon at several coast locations. If you would like to be considered for an extra part in the movie, please send an email to preciouscargoextras@gmail.com.
