Tampa Bay Online reports on the business The Punisher, which was shot there, is bringing to the area...
Coca-Cola already has contacted Emerald's office about the possibility of filming a commercial here advertising the company's new "low carb" drink. The producers of "The Punisher" are interested in doing another film here, and there may be a "Punisher" sequel.
Emerald also said the movie brought in $20 million to the Tampa economy. The crew, which filmed here for 11 weeks, also accounted for 5,000 "room nights" at area hotels and filmed in 50 different locations.
"It was a good experience for everyone," Emerald said. "This is something this area can use to leverage more films being done here."
