thanksgiving. >> reporter: and you don't mind the disruption at all? >> actually, we welcome it. we live on the outskirts of jazz fest. and i grew up and raise my family on this street. so, we just grew up this way. new orleans, just kind of bring it here. bring it on. >> reporter: beyond the tax credit, many credit brad pitt with the film benjamin button, one of the first big movies that spent time to try to rebuild this great city. >> i think they had planned on shooting it here, but after the storm, they were a little leery. but they wanted to make sure it was dry, and they were open for
business. >> reporter: neighborhoods to intersections, there is a gumbo of opportunities. one day we're in an old mansion, today, we're in a park. two different settings. today, louisiana is the movie making capital of the world. a place were all, especially the eccentrics, have always been welcome. you call yourself eccentric. seems like new orleans is the right place for this. >> i do fit in here. people aren't afraid to let their freak flags fly. >> reporter: and film it at the same time. for "nightline," byron new orleans. coming up, jennifer aniston,
