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???

For M.D. – “I told my father we were lovers.”

Tobey, Jakey, Jeff or Matt to re-bound New Mexico style?

New Mexico Film Summer Shoot Schedule

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!

Helena Bonham Carter at #ABQ Uptown

The lifelong muse and immortal beloved of Tim Burton is in town for her part in Disney’s The Lone Ranger movie.

While New Mexico is known for playing it cool and letting our visiting celebs go about their b’niss uninterrupted like…Helena Bonham Carter was particularly unbothered by the kindest gentlest local celeb in town when they were face to face at our own uptown Trader Joe’s.

If she’d been a snake, she couldda bit him. But our unassuming, beloved morning radio show bearer of sunshine and light, Donnie Chase of 100.3 The Peak couldn’t have ID’d the star to save his life or hers when they recently crossed paths.

The star encounter sighting prompted a storm of celeb encounter reports on the JTD Morning Show facebook page.

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!

UPDATE 1/26/11: According to multiple outlets, including the LA Times, Penny and Javie have welcomed a son into the world! ¡Felicidades!


Penny Cruz/Javier Bardem/Progeny Projections

Besides both having starred in New Mexico movies (All the Pretty Horses & No Country for Old Men) and a pair of Oscars between them…

Penelope “I told my father we were lovers,” Cruz and Javier “Friendo” Bardem have congealed their DNA and now the world wonders what that co-mingling will yield.

Thanks to the fun and good times found at Morph Thing we have a visual guesstimate of the {adorbs} offspring soon to be and down the road.
Congratulations & best wishes!

Here’s Bardem (below) in Spain last night, with NM res. Julia Roberts for the Eat Pray Love premiere, fielding a rush of questions re: the “very happy” news! – via the Daily News/Getty Images
