A film starring Nicole Kidman and Robert Downey Jr. about the life of photographer Diane Arbus will be shot at Brooklyn's new Steiner Studios. "With 'The Producers' going full blast on the adjacent four stages, and 'Fur' moving in, we're completely full even before we've finished building and officially opened," Douglas C. Steiner, chairman of the Hollywood-style complex in the borough's former Navy Yard, said Tuesday.

The Brooklyn Navy Yard has seen its share of big productions in the last two centuries. In 1862, the armored gunboat Monitor was fitted with state-of-the-art iron cladding here that helped it fend off a Confederate war vessel during a pivotal Civil War battle. The battleship Maine was built in the yard, a few years before the Spanish sunk it in Havana Harbor in 1898.

Although the show isn't slated to premiere until next year, HBO ordered 11 additional hourlong episodes of "Boardwalk Empire," a period series set in New Jersey during Prohibition. Martin Scorsese is behind the camera for the one-hour pilot and is also an executive producer on the series created by "Sopranos" alum Terence Winter. The show follows the life of an Atlantic City boss, whose political and mob connections enabled him to run the city. Production is expected to start this fall on the series, based at Steiner Studios in Brooklyn, N.Y. -- Martin Miller

But it remains to be seen how long those stages will be full. On Thursday, the state confirmed that it had run through the $515 million set aside for the tax credit program through 2013.

Growing up in the isolated working-class enclave of Marine Park, Brooklyn, Terence Winter always dreamed of escaping to Manhattan. "Not to be a snob, but Brooklyn in the '70s wasn't the hippest place," says the 51-year-old creator and executive producer of the Prohibition-era drama "Boardwalk Empire," which returns to HBO for the start of its third season Sunday. So Winter is more surprised than anyone to find himself back in Brooklyn - and loving it. "I can't wrap my head around it," Winter confesses at his office at Steiner Studios, the waterfront production complex where much of "Boardwalk Empire" is filmed.

IS THIS city poised to take a bite out of Hollywood's bread and butter? A dramatically expanded state tax credit for film and television productions has made New York a more appealing shooting locale than ever, bringing a wave of projects into the city this summer.

Start spreading the news: After years of watching cheaper locales stand in for New York, the city that never sleeps has become a fierce competitor in the race to lure film and TV productions. Last year was New York City's busiest production year in more than a decade -- a remarkable comeback after a steep slump deepened by the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

In an industrial yard behind Burbank's Bob Hope Airport, dozens of orange forklifts and 135-foot-high booms stand idle, gleaming in the afternoon sunlight. As recently as two years ago, the yard was largely empty because the equipment was busy being used to hoist cameras, rig lights and build sets for "Iron Man," "Get Smart," "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" and other movies shooting throughout Southern California.
