Colorado has granted financial incentives to a team planning a film about the killing of child beauty pageant star JonBenet Ramsey in 1996.

The Denver Post reports that the state's Economic Development Commission has approved a 20 percent film incentive rebate to three Colorado-based productions, including "Casting JonBenet," which is set to be filmed in the Denver metro area this month.

The Listen Productions-helmed project is eligible for a maximum rebate of $50,000 -- 20 percent of the $250,000 the production has earmarked to spend in the state. Conditions for the rebate include an audit and a hiring requirement that at least 50 percent of the production's workforce must be Colorado residents.
