MINNEAPOLIS - A new production company is planning to shoot as many as a dozen films in Minnesota over the next three to five years.

Minnesota Film and TV, Griffin Productions and Washington Square Films held a news conference on Thursday announcing the production of "Thanksgiving at Denny's," a feature film to begin shooting in Iron Range of Minnesota next spring.

The future films will likely hinge on what happens with the state's movie production rebate plan. The state currently competes with dozens of other states, according to a report by the Pioneer Press.

The newest film to be produced in Minnesota will be led by Griffin Productions and Production President Jerry Seppala.

Principal investors Steve Brown and Hubert "Buck" Humphrey IV have joined forces in a bipartisan effort to develop economic growth in Minnesota.
