Katherine Heigl, Tom Wilkinson to star in 'Jenny's Wedding' filming in Cleveland beginning Monday

CLEVELAND - Cleveland will be the site of another movie shooting, the Greater Cleveland Film Commission announced Thursday.

"Jenny's Wedding," starring Katherine Heigl ("Knocked Up") and Tom Wilkinson ("The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel," "Michael Clayton") will begin filming Monday.

"Cleveland is resonating within the film industry and we are thrilled that the local workforce has been very busy this year through multiple productions," said Ivan Schwarz, President of the Greater Cleveland Film Commission.

The announcement comes on the heels of the release of the trailer for "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," which was shot in Cleveland last summer and features several action scenes set before some of the city's most recognizable backdrops.

A Cleveland State University study estimates that the 27 projects that have taken advantage of the Ohio Motion Picture Tax Incentive since its 2009 inception have generated $127 million in economic impact.
