James Franco, Nick Jonas Movie to Be Shot in the Area. Here's How to Be an Extra.

Another Hollywood movie is coming to Greater Cincinnati.

On the heels of CarolMiles Ahead, and The Blunderer, comes Goat, which will shoot this spring.

Producers Christine Vachon and David Hinojosa of Killer Films are joined by Rabbit Bandini’s James Franco, Vince Jolivette, and executive producer John Wells.

"We had a great experience in Cincinnati on our films Carol and The Blunderer in 2014," Vachon said. "The (Greater Cincinnati & Northern Kentucky) Film Commission, the rebate, locations, infrastructure and film-friendly people of Cincinnati – have brought us back again." 

Production offices will opened last week. Goat will begin filming on May 4th. The Wrap reported in January that Nick Jonas, of Jonas Brothers-fame, would star.

The film is based on the 2005 memoir of the same name by Brad Land about a teenager adbucted and robbed who then experiences further abuse in a college fraternity.

“We are maintaining sustainable work for locals. This industry has had a tremendous impact on the local economy and we are excited to continue and nurture our relationship with not only Killer Films but also, Rabbit Bandini. They are the utmost professionals and continue to create opportunities for all of us,” said Kristen Schlotman, Executive Director of the Greater Cincinnati Film Commission.

When The Blunderer shot in the winter, scenes were filmed in Northern Kentucky, including in front of the Marianne Theater in Bellevue. The Miles Davis biopic used a Covington parking lot to store its vintage vehicles used in the film which was shot in Cincinnati.
