Official trailer for New Mexico Film, “After the Fall”, formerly known as “Things People Do”, starring Wes Bentley, Vinessa Shaw, Jason Isaacs and Haley Bennett.
Well hell, near’on two years ago this Blogette followed the first tips announcing that TWO huge Westerns would ride in NM – one of which never made it into the saddle. “A Million Ways to Die in the West”, did weather its wild shoot in the Land of Enchantment, but Adam Sandler’s, “Ridiculous Six”, headed into the sunset before the magical light of a New Mexico day fell upon it.
Now, it’s BACK ON!
Sources attached to the production confirm exclusively to OHI, its current New Mexico (re)connection. The project, as formerly dropped by both Sony and Paramount, is likely headed to NM as part of the widely reported Sandler/Netflix, four picture deal!
Midthunder Casting is conducting a talent search for a Warner Brothers feature film which will heavily feature two young boys in SAG principal roles; one Caucasian 12 year old boy (to portray a young Ben Affleck) and one Caucasian 10 year old boy.

Those qualified and interested must send photos and video clips of fighting skills, training and competitions, as well as contact info and city/state in which they reside to:
Southwest region preferred – Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona, Utah
Deadline to submit:
Monday 12/15/14, 5pm
Pay is $880/day or $3,053/week
Tip: Title your email with child’s age, city and type of Martial Arts practiced.
As mentioned here…the Batman Vs. Superman shoot going down in southern New Mexico was expected to move north within the state for more filming.
As part of their investigations the Taos News includes the official statement from the state Film Office which further confirmed completion of the production in New Mexico, including this delightful bullet:
“The production estimates that they spent more than $13 million in the New Mexico economy, on everything from local construction hires to lumber and catering supplies. The film completed its principal photography in New Mexico, after shooting in Michigan and Illinois. The production company estimates that it hired approximately 200 New Mexico crew members during the course of the production.”

The Hollywood Reporter has been following for months that…
Paramount has picked up The Taliban Shuffle, an adaptation of journalist Kim Barker’s wartime memoir as a starring vehicle for Tina Fey.
Fey is attached to star in and produce the adaptation with her former Saturday Night Live boss and 30 Rock cohort Lorne Michaels.
And as discussed on the air just weeks ago with the 94Rock Morning Show, OHI has received tips that Fey and her co-star Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wallstreet, Pan Am) may very well bring their “Taliban Shuffle” out to shoot in New Mexico.
Well now it’s official, at least by our standards. Early word on the Albuquerque, NM production of the weighty comedy is that filming is scheduled to begin, January 2015.
More on the plot: “The memoir tells of Barker’s arrival as a fish out of water in Kabul, filing stories about militants, being a woman in wartime Iraq and Pakistan, dealing with boredom interspersed with dashes of violence, and the promiscuous war-correspondent culture.”
Thanks for the major tip ROCKSTAR

Overland is the story of Noemi, a young, undocumented immigrant living in the United States. After escaping an ICE raid, Noemi tries to purchase a black-market “documents bundle” so that she can continue to work and send money home to her sick father. The problem? The bundle costs $500. In order to raise the money, Noemi starts working as a “fantasy maid”. Things quickly get out of hand, however, and Noemi must decide what’s more important—her dignity or the money.

ANNE: Must appear to be 35-40. Caucasian, blonde, tall. (Mark’s wife) Anne is trying to make this rough patch with Mark work. She’s afraid that Mark has become bored with her, so she orders a Fantasy Maid for him to “spice up” the relationship. Native English speaker.

SANTA FE- The New Mexico Film Foundation announced that Santa Fe filmmaker Michael Becker’s film “Delivery From Earth” will premiere at locations around the country including the Kennedy Space Center on Dec 4th as part of the launch of the Orion Spacecraft. Becker won the Lockheed Martin Filmmaker Grant offered by the New Mexico Film Foundation earlier this year.
Becker was one of 30 New Mexico independent filmmakers who submitted an application for the grant. Applicants were asked to submit a concept for a 3-5 minute movie that deals with the theme of deep space exploration and pioneering and asks the questions ‘…and what now…do we stop exploring?” Becker’s film offers a promising vision of the future in “Delivery from Earth.” The story follows a young Navajo boy and his family as they watch history in the making – the birth of the first human born on Mars.
Nearly 200 museums and science centers around the United States will participate in the Orion First Flight Viewing event, streaming launch videos, holding panel discussions and displaying space exploration exhibits. Participants will have the option of including Becker’s film in their programing.
Becker plans on traveling to Florida several days prior to the launch to talk about his film and to witness the launch of Orion Spacecraft on December 4th. “From the seed of an idea about a child born on Mars, a project was realized by bringing together many talented people. We hope audiences enjoy watching the film as much as we enjoyed making it.” Said Becker.
The following is a list of First Flight Viewing Events locations in New Mexico:
A complete list of participating Event Viewing locations can be found here.

Soooo…without the usual 3 tier “likelihood” of semi-confirmation that OHI usually employs as definitive speculation that something “might be happening” in New Mexico, it seems that some major ventures in guessing will be necessary to nab what may eventually become a major scoop…
In what might sound like, “movie sequels that have already been made” news, it appears that the recently greenlit, “INDEPENDENCE DAY 2″, with or without Will Smith, WILL HEAD to NM in the coming months.
OHI readers may recall that Will Smith and his son, Jaden, made an “After Earth” visit out New Mexico way back in the Spring of ’13. Well, now we wait for more by way of the first casting call and/or some more substantiation from support services or others in the know, on whether or not ID2 is indeed destined to be in our southwestern midst.
We shan’t have to wait long as the skinny on the release date deems for an expedient start, so as to align with the 20th anniversary (yup, it’s been near on TWENTY YEARS) of the release of the original…

UPDATE 11/29/14: EG Casting is NOW seeking background talent for “HOUSE OF CARDS”, filming in Las Vegas, Espanola and Santa Fe, New Mexico in mid-December. They are currently seeking Hispanic Women age range from 20 to 60. Must be able to speak Spanish.
They will ALSO need background men and women with cars for additional scenes. Sorry, NO red, black or white cars can be considered due to filming requirements.
New Mexico Residents ONLY
To be considered, email a photo, height, weight, phone number, make, model and color of car to firstname.lastname@example.org. Title your email, “HOC Background” AND applicable description, e.g. “Spanish Woman”, “(Ethnicity) Man” or “(Ethnicity) Woman”, AND “Car Make/Model/Color”.
Subject: HOC Background, Hispanic Woman, Black Honda Civic
Attach clear, current photo of yourself (and also a photo of your car, if possible)
Yes. Corroboration of some rumblings picked up by a little OHI sleuthing, in the form of some insider info, confirms that a “House of Cards” episode is set to shoot in the New Mexico state capital.
According to tipsters, the third season finale of the Netflix original series will film within just a matter of weeks. Set in Washington D.C., no word on how in the world a Santa Fe backdrop will or will not play into the political drama’s storyline; which has thus far filmed at the offices of The Baltimore Sun, Havre de Grace, Maryland and Aberdeen, Maryland, with exterior scenes of Washington D.C. filmed at the National Mall including road closures at Avenues Pennsylvania and Constitution.
