Posted: Updated:

Two filmmakers will receive an incentive from the state for their new movies including one right here in northern Michigan.

The film office approved "Dogman 2: Wrath of the Litter," which will be filmed in Benzie county this fall.

"Dogman 2" is the sequel to 2012's "Dogman," produced by Traverse City based Brauer Productions.

The project was awarded an incentive of more than $123,000 on $410,000 of projected instate expenditures.

The Dogman legend has been a classic northern Michigan campfire story for generations.

Richard Brauer of Brauer Productions hopes "Dogman 2" will be in theaters by Christmas.

"A Matter of Faith," which will be shot in Grand Rapids over the next month also received the incentive.
