Another NM Production Starring Cameron Diaz on the horizon?

Posted by on July 29, 2012 | One comment

The gorgeous, Nordic looking Latina who captured and held onto our hearts since The Mask and Something About Mary, will be headed back to NM!

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!

Gambit is slated for theatrical release this October. Keep it here for Agent: Century 21 updates through the end of the year…

Sidenote: Diaz is also lined-up for a starring role in The Counselor, a film with NM ties from producer Nick Wecshler, writer Cormac McCarthy, to Penelope Cruz and Dean Norris..And that’s one helluva Big Screen String, New Mexico Style.

Thanks Mac

New Mexico Film – Word From Your Governor

Posted by on October 12, 2011 | 2 comments

TMZ OHI has obtained a copy of the letter drafted straight from the top of New Mexico State Government, inviting film and television productions to bring their projects here.

Being the fount of useless opinion that I am, I have to interject that film like enchiladas, New Mexico simply does better, and supplemental to this letter, maybe a NM goods gift bag, and demo reel would better serve this campaign.

But I defer to more intelligent, actual journalists who have pointed out here that most importantly omitted from this letter is an explanation or breakdown of the new, “bewildering” film incentive rebate structure (maybe it’s in an attachment).

Perhaps better than any paper attachment, armed with the letter NM’s Own Film Office Director, Nick Maniatis did recently trek to Los Angeles to meet with top film and television studio execs (next time also take chile).

We are assured that YOUR New Mexico Film Office Director and his team, under New Mexico’s Economic Development Department, are working for you in capably and fully representing the state’s best interests to bring film jobs and revenue home. Here in a clip from the NM Film Works radio program are Maniatis and NM Filmmakers Program Director, Trish Lopez explaining in detail the changes to the New Mexico Film Incentive Program.

With other states (NC, LA, TX, UT, GA) clamoring for and hammering out deals to the North, South, left and right of us, we better have barrels loaded and be at the ready to bring it full board to ensure we back our leadership in achieving “ongoing success” in New Mexico Film.

As evidenced by continual coverage in the national and international media, the world is watching New Mexico as a strong presence and contender in film production.

Pictured and transcribed here for all the world to see is the Governor’s letter to “Hollywood”. Below see the recent story featured in industry “bible”, Variety on top New Mexico studios.

The three-point punch here is that leadership is backing the industry, our top state film representative has put out the open call and YOU (statewide studios, talent, crews, youth & workforce training, local businesses, et al) are poised to put an everlasting shine on New Mexico Film. Get into it!

Dear Production Executives,

New Mexico like many states has been tasked with bringing certainty and predictability to its budgetary process under difficult economic time. New Mexico’s film incentive program was recently re- with great effort to maintain its success while balancing the needs of our state. I am happy with the compromise made during this past legislative session and I support the continued growth of the industry and the creation of more job opportunities for New Mexicans.

We continue to offer one of the most competitive industry incentive packages in the United States.In addition to the film incentives our job training program and low interest film loans are available for productions shooting in our state.

Our exceptional and experienced crew base is the largest between coasts. New Mexico currently has five studios containing 14 sound stages and over 200 film-related businesses including post production facilities. Direct flights from Santa Fe and Albuquerque to Los Angeles are just another convenience for studio productions.

With over 300 days of sunshine annually, New Mexico [insures] some of the most [awe]-inspiring and diverse landscapes in the world. We have a film-friendly community [network] throughout the state and a dedicated film office whose staff will assist your production through its [entirety].

This industry is a very important sector of our state and I am committed to its ongoing success. I look forward to working together in bringing your next production to New Mexico.

Sincerely,

Susana Martinez
Governor

By Kathy A. McDonald from the cyber pages of Variety:

Santa Fe Studios
Built by producers for producers. That’s how CEO Lance Hool describes the [now] completed Santa Fe Studios. Two 18,000-square-foot adjoining soundstages are the principal elements of phase one of the project that also includes 26,000 square-foot of adjacent office and support space. Located on a 65-acre campus 15 minutes from central Santa Fe, the facilities boast state-of-the-art specs.

Tech highlights include 40-foot ceilings and acoustic design by Bastien and Associates Architecture, which lists Manhattan Beach Studios and Los Angeles Center Studios are among its credits. Hool expects Santa Fe Studios to open in the fall; negotiations are ongoing for the inaugural pic, as well as a camera house and grip and electric tenants.

Since Santa Fe Studios’ inception five years ago, much has improved in the area, says Hool: the local crew base has expanded significantly, and daily flights are available directly into Santa Fe from Los Angeles. Shuttling of above-the-line talent is kept to a minimum as most opt for digs in Santa Fe.

Other notable features: Pueblo-style architecture that echoes Santa Fe’s Native American heritage as well as eco-efforts, including a water catchment system and native plant/drought tolerant landscaping.

Albuquerque Studios
A stone’s throw from the airport, Albuquerque Studios is the state’s major purpose-built facility with eight full-service soundstages; the largest four are 24,000 square-foot each with heights up to 55 feet. Adjacent stages can be combined for more space as needed. A one-stop shop offering everything from grip and lighting to production trailer rentals to camera packages, the facility currently houses “The Avengers” and “Breaking Bad.”

Garson Studios
Located on the Santa Fe U. of Art and Design’s campus, Garson Studios (founded by thesp Greer Garson) recently made major upgrades including new HVAC. Stage A is 14,000 square-foot with a permanent greenscreen cyc. Smaller Stage B (7,500 sq. ft.) is used for both production and prep. Production office space is adjacent. More than 30 films in 20 years have used facility, most recently “Bless Me, Ultima,” “Cowboys & Aliens” and “Paul.”

Fulcrum Building (Rio Rancho, New Mexico)
Seeing potential in the defunct manufacturing plant, Lionsgate took over the converted facility for both its “Wildfire” and “Crash” skeins. Two soundstage-type spaces (50,400 and 63,000 square-foot) with 30-foot ceilings are the draw, plus 25,000 sq. ft. of adjacent office space. Colin Firth starrer “Gambit” recently booked it for greenscreen work.
Contact info: Brian Anderson, Roger Cox & Assoc., 505-379-6030

I-25 Studios
A former microchip processing plant, I-25 Studios consists of 505,000 sq. ft. on 60 acres. The largest soundstage is 29,000 square-foot with a 21-foot height. Utilized as home base for USA’s “In Plain Sight” for four seasons, the location has since hosted an unnamed TNT pilot, “Breaking Bad” and a Dolce & Gabbana spot featuring Scarlett Johansson. In October, three new soundstages and additional base camp space will double production capacity.

New Mexico Big Screen String: Lit. Edition

Posted by on July 11, 2011 | Comments Off on New Mexico Big Screen String: Lit. Edition

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…

And that’s a Big Screen String…New Mexico Style!

Where in the World is Cameron Diaz?

Posted by on July 1, 2011 | Comments Off on Where in the World is Cameron Diaz?

A dear OneHeadlightInk reader wrote up asking what-in-the-set-signs is filming down south Valencia way…

The film may not as of yesterday been all up in my old prestigious 2×2 mi. digs of beautiful Bosque Farms, à la that unsung Seth Rogen classic Observe and Report, but the GAM signs that have gone so far as Northern N. Mex to smack betwixt Bern Co. & Rio Rancho have turned-up Los Chavez style.

If this post is feeling even less sensical and more cryptic than usual that is because A.) I don’t really know what I’m talking about and B.) Because even if speculation on the part of any of our readers or myself may be correct, we’re not in the practice of real-time dish.

However I will expound further…as I almost always do…that if that sexy Latina Diva Cameron Diaz is down south she’d be remiss not to hit-up Benny’s Mexican Kitchen, stop & shop at the local GameStop where Taylor, the sweetest gamerboy/salesman ever is good for great advice and an adorbs chat-up…maybe he’ll take or at least direct her to his girl’s Jerky Shop…where a certain sessy “Jesse” has been known to partake…

And that’s just what I’d have to say if Cameron Diaz is NOW FILMING in New Mexico!

The Coen Bros Go NM Again

Posted by on May 16, 2011 | Comments Off on The Coen Bros Go NM Again

UPDATE 06/11/11: If you haven’t done so yet get listed here for New Mexico casting of this production – heading to NM in late June!


Just released – First image of Cameron Diaz and Colin Firth in Gambit via Metro UK

Michael Hoffman, the man who brought the world Soapdish is directing a new comedy based on the 1966 film Gambit. This update stars Oscar winner Colin Firth and proud Latina Cameron Diaz.

Penning the reboot are none other than habitual New Mexico film makers, Oscar winning writers/directors, brothers Joel and Ehthan Coen. Some of our favorite local actors are already working on booking roles in the remake. (break legs big fella plus! {wink})

The stars are stepping into leads originally filled by some big shoes, one by fellow Brit and legend Michael Caine and the other by fellow legend and New Mexico Res. Shirley MacLaine!

The film is currently in production in London and will be heading to New Mexico forthwith…cherrio!
