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.
