    HOPE VALLEY -- Bright lights and big stars could be moving to Exit 2.

    Plans for a $100-million-plus movie production studio and hotel are expected to be announced during a ceremony at the State House this afternoon, local officials said this morning.

    The project could bring more than 500 high-paying industry jobs, officials said.

    Town Council President Vincenzo Cordone said he and state officials have been working with the company for the past year to bring it to Rhode Island. Cordone said the proposed movie studio is similar to that of Albuquerque Studios, which is owned by Santa Monica, Calif.-based Pacifica Ventures. Pacifica Ventures owns a series of worldwide studios in locations including Hollywood and Kiev.

    That probably means more traffic in your area though.

    Any improvements will bring some traffic impact but this facility will be right off the highway (RT 95).
    500+ good paying jobs is desperately needed and the potential tax benefit is huge and we are really struggling with that soI do hope it happens!
