The situation isn't exactly clear-cut though and neither Tesla or Long Beach Mayor Bob Foster are talking about it while Boeing only says that no deals have yet been made. Among the people who are talking is Long Beach Studio's Chairman Jack O'Halloran, though his statements don't clear anything completely up. He says they just went back into escrow and are going forward with Boeing and expects filming to begin at the location later this Spring. An anonymous person says of the situation, "[They want] to build electric cars there in a couple years, but in the interim they're still going to be shooting there," We don't know exactly what is going on here but we can say for certain that the movie industry has at least one connection to the electric car maker under its belt.
