Travolta action movie will film in Ohio

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — An independent movie starring John Travolta is going to be shot in central Ohio.

The action-thriller called "I Am Wrath" will begin filming in Columbus in March.

John Daugherty of the Greater Columbus Film Commission tells The Columbus Dispatch (http://bit.ly/1DCl5o8 ) that the movie will have about a $10 million budget, making it one of the bigger projects to come to the city in recent years.

Travolta is portraying a man out for justice after a group of corrupt policemen are unable to catch his wife's killer.

Daugherty says he got a call in January after producers visited the Columbus area. They picked it over locations in Mississippi. He says Ohio's motion picture tax incentive was a factor in luring them here.

Filming is expected to last several weeks.
