Michigan's bid to become a Midwest center of movie production is to get a huge boost today with the announcement of a Hollywood film production studio and talent agency opening shop in Pontiac.

Motown Motion Picture Studios, a new company, will open a $54-million, 600,000-square-foot studio and production facility at General Motors Corp.'s former Centerpoint truck plant and office complex in Pontiac, said Gov. Jennifer Granholm's spokeswoman Liz Boyd.

The project is expected to generate more than 3,500 direct and 1,500 indirect jobs.

The governor plans to announce the deal tonight in her State of the State address.

The Hollywood production firm Raleigh Studios is to operate the production site.
