I’m sure most people in the country really don’t care, but for those who worked on the film and live here, it was a big oversight. It’s been well over 20 years since a major film has been shot in the Cincinnati area. The local film community saw The Ides of March as an opportunity to put Cincinnati back on the map as an ideal location for major Hollywood movie production. So there’s was a whole lot riding on the The Ides of March for Cincinnati.
They went on to say that the mistake would be fixed in the upcoming DVD and Blu-ray releases scheduled for January 17. The credits will now read as follows: Filmed on location in the State of Michigan and the State of Ohio. Additional credits will also list special thanks to the Ohio Film Office, the City of Cincinnati, the Cincinnati police Department, Miami and Xavier University, Oxford, Covington, Newport and Bellevue.
Hopefully, Cincinnati will still get some mileage from the film. The political thriller, which is set around the Ohio primaries, has been nominated for 4 Golden Globe Awards, including Best Drama, Best Director, Best Screenplay and Best Actor. The Golden Globes will air this Sunday, January 15, at 8:00 p.m. EST on NBC.
