Hollywood directors flock to Gary

GARY, Ind.--Are you ready for your close up? Gary’s once thriving steel town is Hollywood’s newest back lot.  

The city is on track to host a record number of film productions.

Gary is filled with old abandoned buildings that the city can’t afford to tear down, so it’s renting them out as ready made sets.

Al Cohn a Gary location manager said, “"Industrial decay I find has, a certain amount, for lack of a better word, of charm."

William Kely McClung a movie director agreed with Cohn and said, “"This would cost hundreds of thousands or potentially even millions to re-create and it's sitting here."

Each location costs about $500 per day to rent out, which is a bargain for film-makers.
