ATLANTA — The state’s movie engine keeps pumping Georgia with income.

The latest movie to benefit the state’s economy is Furious 7, the latest installment in the long-running Fast & Furious franchise.

Universal Pictures filmed parts of the movie in Georgia, hiring almost 7,500 workers to produce the film.  According to the Motion Picture Association of America, the film brought as much as $47 million into the state’s economy.

How you ask?  The association noted $15 million in hotel costs and as much as $5 million for building supplies alone.  A report noted that a fictitious Middle Eastern penthouse, cement factory, law enforcement offices and other sets were all constructed in Norcross.

Hollywood continues to fuel the Georgia economy.
