20th Century Fox submitted $3 million in expenditures for filming “Gone Girl” in Cape Girardeau last fall and will get nearly $900,000 in tax credits, the Missouri Department of Economic Development said.

The tax credits come through the DED’s Film Production Tax Credit program, which began in 1999. It issues state tax credits to qualified production companies for up to 35 percent of their in-state expenditures in an effort to boost filming in Missouri. The entire tax-credit program is capped at $4.5 million.

The movie, which stars Ben Affleck and deals with the media circus surrounding the disappearance of a man’s wife, is due in theaters Oct. 3. It is based on the novel by author Gillian Flynn, a Kansas City native.
