With the Hollywood movie “Everybody Loves Whaleswrapping up in Alaska within the next few weeks, state economic officials are wondering what the next big Alaska movie project will be.

Whatever the plot or size, one thing is sure: movies filmed in Alaska bring money to the state, which is why state officials are hoping their tax incentive will convince Hollywood to take an extra look, before shooting elsewhere.

The Grey,” a survival thriller starring Liam Neeson, set in Alaska and planned for a 2012 release, has been scouting different locations in Alaska, however the production has also been looking around Vancouver, which could end up adding this to the long list of movies set in Alaska but filmed out of state.

The State Commerce Department officials say that they still haven’t heard from the filmmakers, however that the company has expressed concerns about the lack of winter sunlight. Another bad sign is the fact that a production office for the film was operating this week in Vancouver, British Columbia.

If you live in the area around Bootlegger Cove you might as well get used to the camera crews as they will become a common sight over the next 10 weeks.

We previously reported that Everybody Loves Whales would start filming in Alaska in September, now the date has finally come. Universal Pictures started shooting near the Anchorage cove last Thursday.

As you may remember, the movie, directed by Ken Kwapis, is based on the 1988 rescue of a trio of California gray whales that got trapped under the ice of the Arctic Circle.
