RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — A comedy film set in the 1980s is set to be filmed in central Virginia this summer.
Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s office announced Wednesday that “Permanent” starring Patricia Arquette and Rainn Wilson will receive an unspecified amount of state money to film in Virginia.
The movie’s writer and director is Colette Burson, who grew up in Abingdon and was co-creator of the HBO show “Hung.”
The governor’s office described the film as a tale of a young girl coming-of-age in a small town.
The film will receive tax credits and grants, the size of which depend on how many workers are hired and other factors.
