Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle, who faces Secretary of State Brian Kemp in the July 24 runoff election, wants people to boycott the work of Judd Apatow after the filmmaker posted a tweet disparaging President Donald Trump.
Apatow’s work, and that of his wife, actress Leslie Mann, includes numerous big-budget movies filmed in Atlanta. He served as a producer for the 2013 comedy “Anchorman 2.”
The movie was set in New York and San Diego but shot here due to Georgia’s film tax credits.
“The tax credit’s huge,” director Adam McKay said in an interview with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution at the time. “We really had to maximize our spend. We basically shot a $100 million movie for half the price.”
