Louisiana on the Rebound?

Here's another article about Louisiana's film industry rebounding quickly from Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Although I'd hardly count "Road House 2" as a rebound. Still, it pays the bills and according to some Louisiana locals who've lost everything, it keeps them sane. But film productions are resuming only outside of New Orleans, which is still way too damaged to support them.

On the other hand, here's an article about the waning plans to build a $20 million film studio in the Algiers area just outside New Orleans proper.
