The biggest concern I had was if it went abroad then it would pretty much put the kibosh on The Dambusters being made, and many other big films too. Plus the money for the local economy is very important too.
The government isnt going to have to "stump up" anything. They arent giving a lump of cash to Warner Bros. Its a Tax rebate. Its income that we wouldnt have received anyway if the Movie went off shore. Its just like any business offering a discount to a major client to ensure that they spend more money with them. The Government will actually make a huge net gain of something like 70 - 80 million as a fair chunk the money the Movie puts into the economy will eventually find its way to the tax man.
If it was supposed to be easy. everyone would be doing it...
