It’s raining in Hamilton?! Yes, but just for a movie

Rain was falling in Hamilton this afternoon — but only as part of movie-making special effects.

“The Old Man and the Gun,” a movie being produced by and starring Robert Redford is filming scenes in downtown Hamilton.

In addition to Redford, the movie will also star Sissy Spacek, Danny Glover and Casey Affleck.

According to IMDB, the movie tells the story of an elderly bank robber now living in retirement community and “looks to spice things up with another heist.”

In 2016, Ohio Gov. John Kasich increased the tax incentive that Ohio offers for film projects to be produced in Ohio from $20 million a year to $40 million a year for the next two years.
