“…we were locked into the West Coast. We couldn’t afford to shoot in LA. Washington was too rainy. New Mexico has really good tax credits, but it was cold in March and there weren’t grass lawns. So we went to Arizona.”
– Director, Dan Rush
The new Will Farrell led, independent comedy Everything Must Go is scheduled to film in New Mexico in March.
The Poduction is currently casting for the role of Kenny Loftus: African-American or Latino, overweight, 11 yr. old male. Applicants ages 10-15 accepted.
Kenny is “naive, inquisitive, intelligent, and honest, the kid who tries to stay invisible at school so he won’t get teased…”
Award winning casting team Joanna Colbert & Rich Mento (Dear John, Post Grad) set to cast.
The John B. Robert Dam in the NE Heights has been in NM Productions from Terminator Salvation to Gamer as of late. Like the 6th Street Bridge in Los Angeles of Old Hollywood where the famed Grease finale race scene was shot.
The notoriously paparazzi ridden, star enticing L.A. hang-out The Ivy sits on Robertson Blvd. and serves as the backdrop for many entertainers photo ops and fan ops to sneak a peek at some of their favorite celebs.
Unlike the singularly located Ivy, New Hollywood’s café of choice, Flying Star has multiple sites in our sprawling cityscape and beyond where hipsters, artists, families and even NM’s Own version of a Hem and Fitz may cross paths in their genius.
I’m ’bout to publish every damn line of the book…just like back in the 5th grade when I got suspended for reading it in class, hidden inside otra libro/the class text book because I could not put it down:
“What really knocks me out is a book, when you’re all done reading it, you wished the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it.” -Holden Caulfield, Chapter 3
“The thing with kids is, if they want to grab for the gold ring, you have to let them do it, and not say anything. If they fall off, they fall off, but it’s bad if you say anything to them.” -Holden Caulfield, Chapter 25
“If you had a million years to do it in, you couldn’t rub out even half the ‘F*** you’ signs in the world. It’s impossible.” -Holden Caulfield, Chapter 25
“Anyway, I keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field of rye and all. Thousands of little kids, and nobody’s around – nobody big, I mean – except me. And I’m standing on the edge of some crazy cliff. What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff – I mean if they’re running and they don’t look where they’re going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them. That’s all I do all day. I’d just be the catcher in the rye and all. I know it’s crazy, but that’s the only thing I’d really like to be.” -Holden Caulfield, Chapter 22
“I was the only one left in the tomb then. I sort of liked it, in a way. It was so nice and peaceful.” -Holden Caulfield, Chapter 25
Toyota Motor Corp. has just halted sales of their vehicles in the whole of the U.S. and Europe. Following last week’s recall of top selling models due to an accelerator pedal defect – with no solution in sight.
Val Kilmer may not be aiming for the top seat in New Mexico state government but he does kick-it in his adopted home state and even lobbies for the industry that made him.
Today ma’ Huckleberry was at the Roundhouse to speak with opponents of El Majico‘s film tax incentives, regaling them and KOB-TV with a riviting tale about how Bill Gates was turned away from the Q back in the 70’s when he was looking for a $15K loan for his NM trademarked start-up Microsoft.
Brooks’ salary package holds steady at more than $250K with an APS budget deficit looming at over $11M, classroom level solutions such as staff cuts – whereby teachers with seniority may be extended the honor of staying at a pay decrease with an added workload to make-up for the cuts, being knocked around, and recent APS administrative glitches such as this Summer’s $16M FUBAR.
Even my only half-lived Catholic school education tells me, “that ain’t right!”
At minimum we’d like to see an RFB (Request For Bid) opened in the name of manning the APS budget and structure. A bid would at least contain a plan and a proposed budget which is more than we can say for NM’s Own Harry Winston.
Therefore, maybe a manwife, unemployed genius, or your local tradesperson would have more success cleaning-up the APS budget since the only thing currently cleaning up is Brooks’ bank account.
And below an interview with Rachel Weisz who too is cast in the Madeline Stowe written film that is also set to star the incredible Hugh Jackman. Weisz briefly details that it is indeed funding keeping the flick from rolling.
I’ll tell you: The 2010 U.S. Census Bureau “is currently looking for friendly and outgoing people to conduct in-person interviews with community residents who do not return their 2010 Census questionnaire.
These temporary part-time positions offer good pay and flexible hours, and you will mostly work in your own community.”
Sure he’s got the Golden Globe…but will Jeff Bridges take the Weed?
Whether you fancy a dashing Denzel from The Book of Eli, Avatar gravatar Sam Worthington, Irish stud Colin Farrell, Transformers hero LeBeouf, Goat Staring Clooney, defunct Spiderman Tobey, Donnie the Dark Jake, high kicking Jackie, or 300’s Gerry Butler…
Each of them have been here and filmed or released a New Hollywood New Mexico production in 2009. Now it’s time for you to take your pick of ‘em.
