SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Utah’s film office says the state has awarded tax credits to two HBO projects expected to spend more than $11 million while filming in the state.

The Utah Film Commission announced Thursday that the cable series “Westworld” has been approved for a $460,000 tax credit. The series was created by Jonathan Nolan, a screenwriter on “The Dark Knight” and “Interstellar.”

It starts Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris and Evan Rachel Wood.

A pilot was filmed in Moab in September and the series will return there in October to film more episodes.

The commission also approved a $2.6 million tax credit for an upcoming Steven Soderbergh film.

Both tax credits were approved by the Governor’s Office of Economic Development Board.


This story has been corrected to show the Steven Soderbergh project is a film, not a series.
