The Michigan Film Office states that "Have a Little Faith", a made-for-television movie, has been approved for a film incentive from the state. The film is based on the #1 bestselling book by Mitch Albom of the same title.
The story is about a journey to discover faith with the help of a childhood rabbi and a Detroit pastor.
“The city and sprit of Detroit play an integral role in Have a Little Faith, so it is only fitting that this movie be shot in the very place that helped to inspire this story,” said Carrie Jones, director of the Michigan Film Office. “In addition to hiring Michigan crew and vendors, this project also presents an opportunity to showcase Michigan to a wide-spread national television audience.”
"Have a Little Faith" was awarded an incentive of $2,355,945 on its qualified Michigan expenditures and the film office expects the production to hire 226 Michigan part time workers.
"Have a Little Faith" is the seventh project approved under the new policy and guidelines issued by the Michigan Film Office. In 2011, nine projects have been approved with $12,988,399 in incentives being awarded on $31,271,545 of approved production expenditures for the year.
