Film Sequel Slated For Vegas

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Representatives of Sony Pictures say the planned filming of "Mall Cop: Blart 2" would highlight Las Vegas and jump start Nevada's film industry.

Executives with the company made their pitch Monday in a hearing before the Governor's Office of Economic Development for film tax credits.

A decision will be made at a later date on whether to grant Sony $4.2 million in tax credits - the first to be sought under law passed by the 2013 Legislature.
