Principal photography is set to begin this week in Detroit on the darkly comic thriller The Job starring Patrick Flueger, Ron Perlman, Taryn Manning and Joe Pantoliano.

Shem Bitterman will direct from his own screenplay adaptation of his stage play of the same name about a young man who undertakes a task to win the girl of his dreams and swiftly comes to regret it. Bitterman is producing with Goshay.

The production is one of the first to take advantage of Michigan's new film incentives that went into effect on April 7.

'The financial incentive is obviously a big draw to shoot in Michigan, but locations are what cinched it for The Job,' Goshay said. 'Detroit is rich in architectural treasures like the Fisher Building and the city is also easy to navigate. We've also been pulled in by the warmth and support of the local community.'

Bitterman has written numerous plays and previously adapted another of his stage productions, Peephole, into a film.

As a screenwriter he has worked on films for Warner Brothers, DreamWorks, Disney and independent companies.
