The province has provided $1 million to support the filming of a movie currently being shot in Sudbury.

"The Intruders", starring Miranda Cosgrove — an actress best known for her work on "iCarly" — is a horror thriller. Donal Logue, Tom Sizemore and Austin Butler are also cast in the film.

“Sudbury has become an attractive destination for an increasing number of film and television productions,” said Sudbury MPP Rick Bartolucci, in a press release.

“I am very pleased that our government’s investments are helping bring these projects to the northeast and providing our budding filmmakers valuable work experience in that industry."

With support from the province’s Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation (NOHFC), the production is creating jobs for local residents, who are working as extras, crew members and production staff.

“The support from the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund and the city of Sudbury was absolutely essential to getting this film made,” said Nicholas Tabarrok, lead producer and founder of Darius Films.

“We couldn’t have done it without them and we’re thrilled to be here shooting.”

“The Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation continues to be an important partner for film productions interested in working in the North,” said Bartolucci. “I am very proud to see the industry establishing roots and creating jobs in our northern communities.”
