Cool Filming for ABC's Lost to move from Hawaii?

Filming for ABC's Lost to move from Hawaii?

From Sci-Fi Wire:

The hit supernatural drama Lost may be looking for a new place to set up camp if Hawaii closes a loophole in its tax laws, the Honolulu Star-Bulletin reported. For the past few years, many film and television productions, including Lost, have been taking advantage of a 100 percent tax credit Hawaii offers for high-tech businesses, but the citizens and government of Hawaii feel that Hollywood is misusing the credit and cheating the state out of millions of dollars. "Nobody wants to move," Lost producer Jean Higgins told the paper. "But this is a business and we must consider options to cut expenses."

If the law is changed and the production decides to move, there are several other states which offer legitimate incentives for productions. The states mentioned by the paper included Louisiana, New Mexico and the Carolinas. But since the tropical backdrop is so essential to the series, an unnamed Touchstone representative offered another possibility. "Did you see Sky Captain?" she said, referring to that film's use of virtual scenery. Lost airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
