Michigan isn't exactly Kansas, but anything's possible in the world of Oz — and film tax credits.
Walt Disney Studios confirmed Friday that its upcoming film "Oz" — a prequel to the 1939 classic "The Wizard of Oz" — will be filmed in Michigan after all.
The movie, directed by Sam Raimi, has a production budget of more than $150 million and would be the largest feature film to ever shoot in Michigan.
The project's fate had been uncertain after Michigan's Republican Gov. Rick Snyder recently proposed a big cut in the state's film tax credit program to balance the budget. Snyder called for capping the program at $25 million a year. Currently Michigan has no such cap and allocates about $100 million annually in tax credits, making it one of the most popular film programs in the country.
