Ava DuVernay’s adaptation of A Wrinkle in Time starring Oprah Winfrey is among the 28 films that were selected to receive tax credits under California’s Film & Television Tax Credit Program. This marks the first year of the tax credit program’s expanded rules, which allows for the first time allows for projects with budgets of greater than $75 million to qualify for the credit.

This year, $109 million in tax credits will be spread amongst the 28 features, comprised of 18 studio projects and 10 independently produced projects. The goal of the program is to mitigate runaway production and encourage studios and production companies to spend their budgets inside not just Los Angeles County, but the state as a whole. Collectively, the 28 projects are expected to spend $880 million in the state, employing over 5,900 crew members.

In addition to DuVernay’s A Wrinkle in Time, other high-profile productions include Bradley Cooper’s directorial debut A Star is Born, Russ & Roger Go Beyond with Will Ferrell and Josh Gad, and the Lionsgate comedy Plus One with Cecily Strong and Jessica Chastain.
