Movies in Louisiana

Louisiana is increasingly becoming recognised as the movie-making capital of the USA. In the past decade alone Louisiana has hosted the production of more than 400 films and a study by the motion picture industry reveals that one in seven visitors to Louisiana travelled because of a film or television show.

In addition, viewers are experiencing beautiful, culturally rich landscapes that Louisiana has to offer. Tom Cruise is currently in Louisiana filming the new Jack Reacher: Never Go Back until 6th February 2016, a movie based on Lee Child novels. Other Louisiana based projects include Pitch Perfect 2, Jurassic World, The Magnificent Seven, The Loft, Focus, Self/less, 22 Jump Street, Django Unchained, 12 Years a Slave, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, The Best of Me and American Ultra, to name a few.

Louisiana as a home also proves to be a firm favourite with actors and actresses such as Sandra Bullock, Brad Pitt, Nicolas Cage, John Goodman and more. So visitors to Louisiana never know what actors and productions they may bump into!

Watch it on film then experience it in real life!
