Variety reports that Hollywood producers haven't soured on making films in Louisiana, despite the state's recent implementation of $180 million tax cap on an annual tax credit for moviemakers.

Some of the recent films shot in Louisiana include "The Expendables," "Pitch Perfect" and "12 Years a Slave." Movies ‘Jack Reacher 2’ and ‘X-Men’ spinoff ‘Gambit’ also were shot in Louisiana.

One producer told Variety: “You have to think about what you will be doing and when the audit will be done.”

Prior to the cap, Louisiana’s film program was popular, but a major money loser.

Then, Louisiana instituted the cap earlier this year.

At one point the film industry envisioned a litany of lawsuits since the cap was turned into law, but so far it hasn’t happened.
