The production will have a cast of 50, include another 4,000 extras (earning $101.50 a day) and will employ 128 crew members pulling down $350 daily.

To help Nebulae Entertainment and producer/director Nathan Nearman realize their goal of having the movie ready for distribution next summer, the Governor’s Office of Economic Development board has approved an incentive package worth $2 million to $2.5 million, depending on the company’s performance.

The Janus Project was one of five film projects offered post-performance tax credits earlier this month by GOED’s board. The others were:

• "Animus Vincio," a dramatic movie directed by Lane Russell, up to $409,418. The film company, also known as Animus Vincio, plans to spend $1.6 million, with 22 days of production featuring a cast of 28, crew of 71 and 250 extras;

• "Singing With Angels," a feature film by Silver Peak Productions, up to $115,840. Director Brian Brough expects to spend $579,000 in Utah, filming for 18 days with a cast of 32, crew of 44 and 100 extras;

• "Two Little Hands," an educational television series, up to $94,082. Two Little Hands Productions is making three episodes of its series, plus another program on American Sign Language 101, spending $470,000 filming over 150 days in Utah, using eight cast members and a crew of 12;

• "My One and Only Love," a romantic comedy, up to $80,000. My One and Only Films is projecting to spend $400,000 on the feature film in 18 days of production involving nine actors, 25 extras and a crew of 25.
