Eastwood shoots movie in VA

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Clint Eastwood is shooting a new movie in Virginia, starring Leonardo DiCaprio.

It's called "J. Edgar Hoover" — a film that examines the life and legacy of the first FBI director.

Eastwood used several sites in northern Virginia as the backdrop for the movie.

A lot of film makers have been coming to Virginia recently because of the tax breaks the state is now offering.
