Imagine a Hollywood movie company coming to Havre de Grace to make a blockbuster film starring actors like Mel Gibson and Meryl Streep.Sound far-fetched? Maybe not.The state Film Commission came to Harford County on Thursday to scout sites for movies, television shows and commercials.Although no film projects are targeted for the county at the moment, the commission wants to be ready just in case, said Jay Schlossberg-Cohen, director of the commission.After the tour Thursday, commission members agreed Havre de Grace, with its bridges, historic structures and picturesque view of Chesapeake Bay and the Susquehanna River, is a top prospect for movie locations, Schlossberg-Cohen said.
