Well isn’t this a lovely turn of events? It seems that the last half of 2014 and moving on into a bright and shiny 2015, more tips and hints are turning out to come to fruition than not!
From Fey to Sandler to “Frank Underwood”, some of the hottest gossip that has landed in the OHI inbox is rapidly coming to life, on location and in the amazing studios available right here in New Mexico.
The 2016 sequel is expected to hit theaters…when else…over the July 4th holiday…twenty years later. ID2, two decades on the heels of its predecessor, WILL NOT star the original lead.
Returning producer Dean Devlin has said, “I’m not sure of the reasons why Will [Smith] ultimately decided not to do it. You’d have to ask him. I think he was just at a place where he did seriously consider it. We had a lot of meetings with him, but at the end of the day he decided that doing this wasn’t right for him.”
Also back for part deux is director Roland Emmerich. Likely character returns include Jeff Goldblum as environmentalist David Levinson and Randy Quaid’s refugee transporting, Russell Casse.
Just in time for post Mother’s Day goodness, budding actor, NM res., über muscle man David Robbins recently shot over this lovely lil’ Thank You Note much to the delight of the cockles of my heart!
Feedback of such sweetness and light are the very reason I maintain this here ‘dot’ on the www with the support of my team, internal and ex (wink)!
As the ‘mother’ of this cyber spot it’s my goal to feature the people and opportunities of my favorite state, so when Nuevo Mexicans (and beyond) make a connection, get a part, warm a heart, inspire and get inspired it’s my privilege to bear witness and calling to report!
I love it here and I love the people I get to meet virtually and IRL!
So, up until and beyond the point in time when a manuscript, screenplay eh hmm, or treatment of mine finally hits the buying price of my dreams, I’ll still plug away at the research, fake reporting, innocent gossiping, and broadcasting I’ve come to love – I’ll just get to do it wearing better slippers.
THANK YOU! Thanks to every industry contributor, reader, actor, artist, activist and friend for being a part of what drives a shared passion for focusing on New Mexico Talent – the greatest thing since green chile!
In the immortal words of Ray Charles via Jamie Foxx, “Yeah, yeah, I’m gonna make it do what it do, baby.”
Keep it here and tell yo’ friends…so much more to come on the exploits of Mr. Robbins and the many, many, many locals shaking things-up!

Interactive Memory Lane:
KASA FOX 2 – Jessica’s Interactive Report aired July 23, 2009
NM’s Own Mine That Bird is a fine specimen of breeding, athleticism and endurance, who wowed the world with his spectacular 50-1, 2009 Kentucky Derby run and win.
But it’s Black Hat donning, crutch wielding, slick talking MTB trainer Bennie Woolley who I may be most interested in seeing portrayed on the big screen.
If you don’t remember Wooley’s triumphant post race interviews where he shot off more than once that he was sick of being asked about personally driving MTB to KY for the event – then you didn’t see them.
And if the second tier storyline for the upcoming feature film about the Roswell reared, Mine That Bird doesn’t include the incessant harping unleashed on Woolley regarding that mode of transit and the insipid references to his crutches I will be gravely disappointed – it was every reporter all but putting “baby in the corner” every damn interview.
First tier has to be the awesomeness of the horse himself and third tier maybe the shank of being dropped by Judas for a dame in the Preakness which should’ve been MTB’s too!
You can watch the hot machine of fine tuned mind & muscle that is MTB take the race here – he looks particularly beautiful trotting after the race, you may want to watch it with the sound off as railyard (or whatever they call him) Borel gives his post game victory speech.
Any New-Mexico-productions-keep’em-coming…the film is slated to shoot here in 2011. Woot! Whinny! Nay!
Here is the AP press release regarding the upcoming production.
They say picture is worth a thousand words, but if you’re Julia Roberts it’s more like $20 mil. and she can do pretty much anything she wants. In this age of gratuitous reboot Julia Gulia has taken a stand and said pass to the poss. of a Pretty Woman part deux.
Jules was ~recently quoted as saying she’s “too old” to come back to the silver screen as everyone’s favorite hooker with a heart of gold.
But NM’s Own eternally gorgeous woman et al can relish a Romantic Comedy (Ro-co) at any age, frankly the more mature the better…that’s why waaay back in ’03 I myself penned an entire script around one of my fave Roberts Ro-cos.
And here’s the mock-up of the movie poster of our dream cast for the follow-up flick. Note the artistry in the head cropping, inspired by the original PW poster that was famously and similarly doctored.
As for the script, it is here in whole form, filed away; where it has been since it made its rounds to some Roberts-Moder representative in Taos, then up to an NYC production co. who politely returned it to us non grata – WOW gotta love “the business”, even that was an exciting day at the ~office!
Well, if and when she’s ready the story in its entirety is here for her, fait accompli – Jules, Mr. Marshall, Anybody, Anybody…
Sightings of NM’s Own Brat Pack on whole have been few and far between since the early dawn of 2010.
The Pack’s been busy – what with the boys upcoming spread in JQ, photographed exclusively in the all new, sexy Pajama Jeans for Men and the ladies working so hard in the Q all the while fighting off those pesky romance rumors, linking them from everyone from Channing Tatum to Jamie Foxx.
In this never before seen promo shot you get a bizarrely lit hint of what it’s like to hang with this famous party Pack. For the real life impression of their actual WOWNESS, you may only hope to catch-up with them during their upcoming social appearances in the Q this weekend.
Hint: You won’t find ‘em down. They’ll be all Q’d up this Friday.
To book the Pack for your party or promotion you can contact their handlers here.
Mine own copy of The Great Gatsby has been read many times over and there’s great nostalgia in following the same words over those very pages again and again.
The bound texts I’ve shared with others too are special, whether the copy of Pride and Prejudice that was returned early because it was just too much of a drain on my dear friend who preferred her copy of Ya Ya Sisterhood which I just couldn’t endure or the shared copy of Candide that my brother has enjoyed at least as many times as I have.
I hope at least one of these selections finds its way into your future and you find some joy in it:
Zelda – a biography by Nancy Milford
All Creatures Great and Small by James Harriot The Curse of the Bambino by Dan Shaughnessy, Sports/Baseball Lore Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse
Candide by Voltaire
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Great Expectations by Charles Dickens The War of Art by Steven Pressfield
The Wednesday Witch by Ruth Chew – Children’s/Collectible
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
A Knickerbocker’s History of New York by Washington Irving, the first “great American novel”?
A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway
Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls
The Call of the Wild by Jack London
Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger
About Love – Stories by Anton Chekhov
A Separate Peace by John Knowles
Profiles in Courage by John F. Kennedy
While the eternal studliness that is Johnny Depp goes on and on from his baby-faced days on both Elm and 21st Streets to be characters such as Jack Sparrow and the Mad Hatter the lovely, ill fated Dorothy Parke as “Amy”, who was the envy of every little girl in 1988, is relegated to wrinkle inducing make-up in this clogged artery commercial.
Oh how my own teenage heart paused and stomach sank when “Amy” first came on the scene in that bath robe to kiss “Tom” – but not even then would I have wished this fate upon her – being chased by a gurney while Depp remains a heart throb.
New Hollywood, NM should rescue her from such indignities AND plavix should hire an age appropriate actress…Spread the work around evenly and justly.
