Rumors are swirling about who will step in to replace Jude Law in the upcoming Natalie Portman western “Jane Got a Gun”…but has anyone thought that it may be TWO of the a fore mentioned studs instead of just one????
L’est we forget that there’s more than just one vacancy left after the upheaval resulting from a certain director’s direct exit from the film…as we alluded to here, prior to that directorial mess, a genuine scheduling conflict caused a leading man void in the Portman produced pelicula.
IF anyone has ever taken a word of my advice on what a riveting film NM’s Own 2009 “Brothers” was, they’ll know that both Tobey Maguire and Jake Gyllenhaal are a natural fit to work with Portman, and as for Jeff Bridges…well, CRAZY HEART!!!! Need I say more? If so, how ’bout a little film called “True Grit”, starring the naturally dreamy and perfectly aged Jeff Bridges!
Finally I’d be remiss if I didn’t disclose that Bridges’ co-star in Grit, none other than THE Matt Damon of the long ago NM Film, “All the Pretty Horses” is, as of this writing, a scheduling clear contender…
Of course it will be no surprise if none of the above make it to set, as is the world of movie making…maybe one of the locals can take a stab at one or two of the vacant roles on this pic.
Meanwhile, word on the wire is that another long lived leading man is recently signed on for a yet to be announced NM western, namely one Kurt Russell who is said to be on board with “Bone Tomahawk”, led by Timothy Olyphant (Justified) and Jennifer Carpenter (Dexter).
Keep your ears to the grindstone my friends, New Mexico’s Summer shoot schedule is set to be a bumpy ride!
Got nepotism? Show biz is full of it and many, many other things including over inflated egos. In today’s installment of ungrateful much, little known actress not Sophia Sandra Vergara recently made news when deciding and broadcasting that N. Mex, specifically ABQ was not up to her high standards (of rampant alcohol consumption).
Uh, wrong, wrong and wrong dummy. Twin Peaks is not a strip club it’s a restaurant chain, NM has more drink to offer than we know what to do with, and Albuquerque spans farther than the three block length you in your all knowing ways chose to slam.
‘Not Sophia’ has obviously yet to learn the Scoville Scale to New Mexico (see: six degrees to Kevin Bacon) because in her lack of gratitude for being a working actress she also managed to diss the hometown of one of her sister’s co-stars. Um, lil bully.
Get the full story here from KOB-TV and see the entire talk show appearance where Vergara pokes at the Q here.
Step to the back of the line b-rate. Bigger, far more recognizable stars have perpetrated worse digs against our beloved Nuevo México. Take a cue from ABQ friendly a-lister and star of the movie you were here filming and earning money for…the famously crass, heartthrob and actual celebrity – Irishman Colin Farrell, who had no trouble getting his anything on while in the Q.
Finally instead of letting “what’s-her-name’s” quotes lead the parade today, check the bigger digs, here, here, here and here. But I have to hand the Quote of the Day award to:
“I would not know that actress if i fell over her. Albuquerque rocks, she can go and DO ONE as we say in England!” – NM Actor by way of the UK
Update: More delusions from Vergara on how her sister’s fame has NOT helped her ~career and best of all a rationalization on why Colin Farrell DID NOT go for her on location here as told to the LatinoVoices edition of the Huffington Post…(thanks Cheryl)
ICYDK: You can’t throw a stone without hitting someone or something tied to NM Film – but don’t.
Like the intricate threads woven throughout classic literature…such as in a Cormac McCarthy novel turned film…like the Coen Bro’s Oscar® winning turn at the McCarthy best selling novel, No Country for Old Men, so is New Mexico woven into the fiber of Global Film…
Garret Dillahunt the lovably daft undersheriff to Tommy Lee Jones in No Country is named as the lead in the New Mexico production of The Boys of Abu Ghriab.
Another No Country star, Woody Harrelson is soon to be seen in the HBO original film Game Change which recently wrapped Northern N. Mex. filming…
The Coen bros put “pen to paper” for the reboot of the 1966 film Gambit, this time out starring Cameron Diaz & Colin Firth now filming in…yes, New Mexico!
The likewise best selling Dean Koontz novel turned highly anticipated NM movie, Odd Thomas is (back) at work this week.
Odd director Stephen Sommers also churned out 2009’s GI Joe which starred Sienna Miller and Channing Tatum…Sienna’s current project, Just Like a Woman is now casting and set to shoot right here in NM.
Tatum’s upcoming New Mexico movie Ten Year is expected to premiere this year…but you never can tell, another GI Joe co-star Rachel Nichols starred in the NM film Bird of the Air (formerly titled The Loop) and we’re still waiting on its release.
This isn’t the first NM term for Odd Thomas star Anton Yelchin, who is back for another run as he was for the soon to be released thriller Fright Night.
Anton’s co-star in Fright, Colin Farrell is too a repeat NM filmer as he previously starred opposite the Oscar® winning Jeff Bridges in…the wholly New Mexico film Crazy Heart.
Bridges also worked in NM…in last year’s True Grit along side Matt Damon who first worked NM waay back in ’99 in All the Pretty Horses a film based on the novel of the same name by…you guessed CORMAC MCCARTHY…
UPDATE 7/10/11: SUPER ~secret set construction begins! Official‘ish announcements are beginning to come out…Hi-Yo Silver! NM silver screen that is! Woot!
Those among you who care to know if the pipeline of sessy leading men will continue to flow into New Mexico – we are here for YOU!
We’ve patiently waited for stalled projects like Unbound Captives to unleash the likes of Robert Pattinson on our fair state and the pending Protection of Dwayne “The Rock Again” Johnson.
The desert heat rises when scary Colin Farrell frights, Tatum charms again and again, or mucho mas gorgeous Cena shows us some lurve.
Not to be outdone, our beloved part-time New Mexicans set-up house and help out the community while their NM based productions shoot, and oodles of feature film & indie goodness roll in & out like our cool evening breezes (sigh)…
We’ve long awaited the arrival of Johnny Depp – and he may never leave if a certain Santa Fean beauty has a moment to work her charms on ’em.
Shantaram has been forever slated to shoot aqui con Depp but alas that film appears to be in the permanent hold queue avec Unbound…
HOWEVER hot on the Disneywire today is news that Depp’s escándalo Tonto in Disney’s upcoming Lone Ranger flick has sights set on NM!
If asked, this bloggette could attest to the facts that this is a very real possibility – as we all know Disney ain’t no stranger to the Land of Enchantment, whether under their flagship moniker or with one of their acquired brands; Marvel, ABC or Sony Imageworks – we’ve long had us mouse in the house!
While Fright Night holds tight to its official trailer the Wholly New Mexico film that’s destined for a limited release before hitting the DVD bin and Netflix circuit makes a great showing in this theatrical trailer!
Wily willed co-star Mickey Rourke made headlines last week yo-yoing between trashing the flick and reneging to reining-in powerful statements made about his leading lady, the lovely Megan Fox.
Last week Rourke told peeps at a Hollywoo party that PP is just a “terrible, terrible movie” and then later dropped the cool waters of ‘you ain’t all that’ on his previous statements about Fox being one of the most talented actresses of all time, by reemphasizing, “that I’ve worked with” then allegedly adding the patented Mickey Rourke f-you smirk that keeps us all coming back for more no matter what revision of his face we’re confronted with.
Here’s Mick’s rebuttal to the mag that printed his less than stellar review of Passion Play:
“Hey, guys. When I talked to you, I was at a party. It was loud and crowded, I was in a shitty mood and I was trying to get rid of your reporter. Mitch (the director of the movie) is one of my best friends since we were kids. I loved working with him and would do it again tomorrow. I don’t know why I said that stupid shit. I love Mitch, I love Megan. My bad.”
Congrats to all our talented locals that worked on this epic saga!
And whilst we wait to see the official Fright Night trailer here’s what the star of that flick said in front of a crowed screening the film to stick his foot in his gorgeous mouth over his latest Wholly New Mexico Movie:
“Meself, as a fan of the original, it doesn’t change. I don’t think I’ll have a copy of this version in my library, but I have the original at home…” – Colin Farrell
Later explaining to EW “What I meant was [I wouldn’t own it] because I’m in the f-ing thing!” He said he cringes when he watches himself. “It’s always uncomfortable.”
Stir that pot boys! Keep ’em talking, get ’em watching! Go New Mexico Film! And now if you need a warm fuzzy, mosey on over to the eloquence of sexy Olivia Wilde’s love letter to NM here.
This ALL New Mexico all the time movie has been building anticipation as die-hards and naysayers alike await the reboot of the eighties cult classic!
Along with the very few (3 that we know of)…Fright Night class of 2010-2011 production/on location pics, including one rabid, yet respectful fan pic of none other than Colin Farrell leaving his hotel en route to set, the on set pic that got some peeps axed from the production and the likewise first glimps of seksi David Tennant as Peter Vincent…

The prettiness that is Colin Farrell continues to flex his chops filming the Fright Night redux at various locations in & around Albuquerque…We do not publish filming locations/addresses, dates/times or buy or sell pappo pics/video, but we will post your candids and appreciate your tips!
Anystaringintothosestarryeyesissocalming, but I digress…
The wizard of words who spun the original tale, Tom Holland speaks out about the remastering of the first film rev. that has become an eighties horror classic.
Which as we’ve previously ~reported will be among the first NM films in Three Dimensions…Here’s what Holland had to say:
Colin Farrell (Crazy Heart, NM) appears to be headed back to the Q to star as the blood thirsty villain in the 2011 remake of the 80’s classic comedy horror Fright Night.
Tom Holland’s 1985 screenplay will be reworked by Mad Men’s Marti Noxon
maintaining its original plot that centers on teenager Anton Yelchin (Terminator Salavation, NM) and his mother Toni Collette (Little Miss Sunshine, NM) who become entangled then terrorized by Farrell’s vampire next door in this DreamWorks SKG, New Mexico production. Woot!
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.
Vote for the Big Screen ladies of New Mexico here.
Here’s Colin Farrell filming a scene in the Q, for the Fox Searchlight film Crazy Heart, after a Toby Keith concert back in ’08.
No word yet on when the flick will be released on the big screen. Fox ought point its search light on that info. I haven’t seen a delay in a Nuevo Mexico release date of this duration since the Spring ’99 wrap of ATPH with a Christmas 2000 release.
We hope Collin isn’t relegated to the DVD bin like the ill fated J. Lo flick where downtown doubled for Juarez. I don’t think it was the Q’s acting that did that one in….Did we ever get paid for that one???
UPDATE 8/2/11: Director Len Wiseman confirms “three breasted woman” WILL return in Total Recall reboot…
Variety is reporting that our own beloved Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad, NM, Love Ranch, NM) is in talks for the role of the villain in the upcoming remake of Total Recall opposite sexy Colin Farrel (Fright Night, NM).
The redux is slated for a summer 2012 release and will reportedly be filmed in Toronto.
