Veteran costume designer Courtney Hoffman is expected to shoot her first feature film in New Mexico.
Hoffman’s wardrobe and personal costumer credits include work on films such as Django Unchained, The Hateful Eight, Baby Driver, Water for Elephants, and Snow White and the Huntsman. Her costuming career began as a trainee on The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian in 2007.
New Mexico cast and crew may remember Hoffman for her work on the NM Film Captain Fantastic back in 2016.
Summer of 2017 saw the release of Hoffman’s first filmmaking effort in the form of a short titled The Good Time Girls, which she wrote and directed – see the full short film below.
The full length feature of the same name, produced by Haven Entertainment/Jaywalker Pictures in association with Mandalay Pictures, is a blood-soaked western that tells the story of a group of vigilante women who band together as they go to war against a pack of men who have done them wrong at every turn.
Filming is slated to begin in February 2018. The adaptation from the short film script was co-written by Lucy Teitler. Actor Jake Gyllenhaal is attached as a producer.
The original short starred big names including Laura Dern, Garret Dillahunt, Alia Shawkat and Annalise Basso. Stay tuned for local casting and production information.
