More than three dozen Hollywood actors and directors have signed their names to an open letter threatening to cease all film productions in Georgia if the state’s Republican governor signs a new law they argue discriminates against LGBT individuals.

Various tax incentives helped spur a lucrative film industry in the Peach State, resulting in the production of 248 films and television shows in 2015 and an estimated $1.7 billion in revenue.

Among the celebrities who added their name to the open letter were:

-Kristen Chenoweth;
-Anne Hathaway;
-Seth MacFarlane;
-Julianne Moore;
-Ryan Murphy;
-Rob Reiner;
-Aaron Sorkin;
-Gus Van Sant;
-Bob and Harvey Weinstein.
