Cameron Diaz was New Mexico way right about this time last year shooting the upcoming comedy Gambit with Colin Firth. This time out Diaz is set to star in, Agent: Century 21, the story of “a real estate agent [who] gets caught-up in a Mexican drug lord’s kidnapping plot”.
Benicio Del Toro is also rumored to co-star in this purported NM production! Yay!

New Mexico based Reelz Channel is producing its first non-scripted competition series, Race to the Scene, hosted by action-movie star Dolph Lundgren.
In Race to the Scene, pairs of contestants race to and from actual movie locations as they compete in challenges and stunts inspired by memorable movie moments. Race to the Scene is set to debut in spring 2013. The Hochberg Ebersol Company will produce Race to the Scene. The series is created and executive produced by Justin Hochberg, Charlie Ebersol and REELZ.
“Race to the Scene will transport movie lovers off their couch and into their favorite action scenes,” said Charlie Ebersol, co-founder, The Hochberg Ebersol Company. “Mark my words, Dolph Lundgren will change non-scripted television forever… or at least until he does it again. He is the perfect iconic action star to lead this fast-paced, adrenalin-filled adventure that will keep viewers on the edge of their seats week after week.”
