NOW FILMING – Twilight-shmilight, book series’ turned movies are all the rage, and New Mexico is getting a little piece of the “American Girl” franchise!

On the 2008 heels of “Kit Kittredge: An American Girl” for the big screen, another installment of the direct-to-video film series, based on the outrageously popular line of 18-inch dolls, is currently filming in New Mexico.

The dolls portray nine to eleven–year–old girls of a variety of ethnicities. The current “Girl of the Year” (GOTY) is Alberta.

A(merican) G(irl) Tube reported in September:

Upset that her New Mexico school can only afford music and art teachers in alternate years, fourth-grader Saige works with her grandmother, Mimi, to plan a fundraiser but when Mimi has an accident, Saige relies on new friend Gabi to help. (Book One- Meet Saige) Painting in her grandmother’s studio and riding her favorite horse, Georgia, helps fourth-grader Saige cope with missing Mimi and sparks an idea for funding the school art program, but more creativity will be needed to keep Georgia from being sold. (Book Two- Saige Paints The Sky). Her books are written by Jessica Haas and is illustrated by Sarah Davis (the same illustrator who drew the gorgeous illustrations in the Kanani books).

American Girl is holding auditions and is looking for: A girl with a fair complexion (the character may be named Alberta), A girl from Latin America (the character may be named Gayle), A girl of all/ any ethnicities (the character may be named Dina), and a girl with blonde hair (who may be named Tasha).

Over the summer it was announced that Jane Seymour is cast as the adult lead in the film, which has already completed principal photography in Manitoba, Canada.

American Girl: Alberta is exec. produced by Debra Martin Chase (Lemonade Mouth, Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, Princess Diaries), and is directed by Vince Marcello.
