******NEW MEXICO RESIDENTS ONLY******

As I’ve been telling you since…here, “The Scorch Trials”, the upcoming sequel to the newly released, 20th Century Fox hit film, “The Maze Runner”, is set to shoot in New Mexico.

Maze Runner: Scorch Trials, is based on the second novel in James Dashner’s Maze Runner book series. The original film has already racked up an impressive $148M worldwide, still set to open in China, the U.K., France, Germany and Italy.

According to JamesDashner.com, “The Gladers have escaped the Maze, but now they face an even more treacherous challenge on the open roads of a devastated planet. And WICKED has made sure to adjust the variables and stack the odds against them. Can Thomas survive in such a violent world?”

Holy Batman v Superman, New Mexico!

Posted by on September 24, 2014 | No comments

Here we go again Batman v Superman Rumored for New Mexico

Thanks to a thoughtfully worded casting call posted by the New Mexico Film Office, as referenced in my last post, tipsters and film fanatics have now weighed-in with juicy insights about another Warner Bros. pic that may fit this bill…

‘Batman News’ has been chronicling every detail and possible move made by the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice crew, including this tidbit I was pointed to regarding the film heading to North Africa.

Funnily enough, it was just days ago that Star Wars director, J.J. Abrams unleashed a Batman/Star Wars mashup upon the world! You may recall, since back in late 2012 OHI was embroiled in the still lingering gossip wars about Episode VII (now) filming, at least in part, right here in NM.

This time out, the dominate chatter in the inbox@oneheadlightink.com says, “WB feature film shooting Africa in New Mexico is Batman,” As we know nothings official until someone yells, “WRAP”, so we shall see. In the meantime keep your eyes peeled for a Batmobile and/or Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jesse Eisenberg, or Jason Momoa in and around southern New Mexico.

For more hyper chronicled deets on BVS check out this article from, ‘The Week’.

It’s going to be an ‘Enchanted’ Bachelor season

Posted by on September 12, 2014 | No comments

New-Bachelor-Chris-Soules-headed-to-Santa-Fe-New-Mexico-in-October

When I heard that a major ratings grabber would be setting up shop in northern New Mexico to air on one of the big three television networks (ABC, CBS, NBC), I thought we may on the verge of learning the new home for the beloved NM series, Longmire.

But a resolution to that dramatic saga has yet to unfold. In the meantime, filming is just now getting underway for another type of drama, The Bachelor 2015.

You may recall a bit of a hullabaloo going on in our capital city recently as governing councilors debated the issue of offering incentives to the ABC hit. In the end the city council voted 5-4 in favor of offering a tax break to the tune of $50,000 in production costs, with the New Mexico Tourism department kicking in another $50,000 out of their $16,607,3230 reserve budget.

Though many feathers may be ruffled, OneHeadlightInk can exclusively report that part of the latest installment of the mega hit series is now expected in Santa Fe this October.

Set to premiere January 5, 2015, the highly anticipated return of the franchise is expected to rake in record views.

So, what do y’all think? Will it be white water rafting, hot-tubbing by the light of the silvery Santa Fe moon, fine dining, hiking, art appreciation, shopping, hot air ballooning, or all of the above for Bachelor, Chris Soules and his bevvy of beauties in the city different?

And, do you think the investment by New Mexico will pay off in painting the state as a hot tourist destination?

Longmire needs a new network home

Posted by on August 28, 2014 | 29 comments

Longmire Cancelled for nowImage via author, Craig Johnson on Facebook

Don’t fret N. Mex! On the emo side of this story I say, another network MUST pick up this hit series. By its own account, A&E logged the series as its “most-watched original drama series of all time”. On top of that, the “Longmire Posse” is nothing to tinker with!

On the suspicious side, I’m hoping for a turn toward this becoming nothing but a major publicity stunt. Stunt or not, it’s time for a public outcry that the show come back in some way, shape or form. You can’t just let the series die a lonely, back country death.

As for the possible hit to New Mexico television production, take heart in knowing that television productions are alive & well in the state. In addition to the CW series, The Messengers, WGN’s Manhattan and the return of NBC’s, The Night Shift, James McGill is hard at work in the #BreakingBad prequel, Better Call Saul. And at least one (television series pilot) is rumored to be gearing up to shoot right here in the Q, while the relocated production of USA Network’s, Dig is set to begin filming within weeks.

B.T.dubs, this is not the first kink Longmire the series has encountered…it wasn’t an easy row to hoe to get to production rolling in the first place, as its home setting, Wyoming, proved to be less film friendly than New Mexico. So, here’s to finding a more Longmire friendly network for the beloved NM series.

Productions slated for New Mexico

Posted by on July 29, 2014 | Comments Off

Filming in New Mexico-Coming Soon

In addition to projects currently filming in NM a whole bevy of new productions are headed this way.

As “Blood Father” has wrapped and “Sicario” rolls on, two indie features are currently setting up shop in Albuquerque. As we told you here, “Bare” is set to get underway this week, while “Burning Bodhi” is in the middle of filming. Stay tuned for more info. on both – coming soon.

Meanwhile as “Lonmgire” 3 has wrapped, “Better Call Saul” 1 and 2 are in high (slow) gear, “Manhattan” 1 is winding down and “The Messengers” is getting set to resume; Two new comedy pilots are preparing to to shoot in New Mexico. Also in this broadcast we told you that the AMC comedy pilot for “We Hate Paul Revere” is expected to shoot at Albuquerque Studios within weeks. And come this fall a dramatic comedy pilot for USA Network currently titled, Stanistan is also headed to Albuquerque.

Revere is set in Boston, focusing on two brothers who are comically anti early American industrialist & Patriot Paul Revere, starring Ethan Sandler and Adrian Wenner. Stanistan follows the staff at the American Embassy in the Middle Eastern country as State Department workers, covert CIA officers and journalists strike a delicate balance of danger and absurdity.

Last week’s San Diego Comic Con was full of exciting reveals, announcements and sightings. One upcoming sci-fi thriller gaining buzz and building anticipation is the sci-fi thriller, “Maze Runner”. The biggest news on Maze at SDCC is that a sequel is already in the works…and guess where it’s expected to land. That’s right kids, while we’re waiting for the “Captain Fantastic” train, chew on the prospect of “The Maze Runner” becoming a big hit and get ready for its sequel to hit New Mexico’s bottom line!

It’s lights, camera, Cranston and much much more for “Better Call Saul”

Posted by on July 24, 2014 | Comments Off

Better Call Saul Billboard in Albuquerque Image via Twitter

While insiders have confirmed with OHI that Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul is on the roster to appear in the show’s upcoming prequel “Better Call Saul”, speculation abounds about which other cast and production members are or might be attached.

Saul Goodman née James McGill, beloved Mike Ehrmantraut and at least a glimpse of Jesse Pinkman are mounting reasons why Bad fans the world over are itching for the “early 2015″ debut. Filming is meticulously underway in Albuquerque where the tiniest glimpses of what can be expected are coming to light. And what’s coming to light is that the BCS team is tight and right.

By his own account the bump from a November 2014 premiere into 2015 is due to Vince Gilligan’s producing and directing style being “slow as mud”, so says the Bad creator himself who continued, “I still feel I’m very slow for television”, at the recent Television Critics Association.

Slow and steady she goes, by all ground accounts here in the ABQ, Saul co-creators Gilligan and Peter Gould are hard at work carefully crafting the kind of darkly comedic drama that has the masses addicted to their work.

And what of the at first haphazard chem teacher turned drug kingpin? Like Aaron Paul, Bryan Cranston has purportedly been attached to the new show, but not only with a possible turn as either Heisenberg and/or Mr. White in the series’ flexi-time-line, but behind the camera as an episode DIRECTOR.

Cranston directed episodes of Breaking Bad (Blood Money, No Más, Seven Thirty-Seven), an episode each of The Office and Modern Family, and seven episodes of Malcolm in the Middle, with feature film direction under his belt in the 1999 film, Last Chance, which he also wrote and starred in.

Any way you look at it this series is shaping up to be another WINNER.

Watch for the television production family that spawned Saul on the 2014 Primetime Emmy Awards show, airing Monday August 25 on NBC, where Breaking Bad has been nominated one last time for a whopping 16 Emmys.

Turns out movies DO make money for New Mexico

Posted by on July 22, 2014 | One comment

New Mexico Lawyers for the Arts

While nearly all other areas of New Mexico commerce and job growth have been floundering over the last several years, The New Mexico Film Industry has been a proven revenue generator for the state in the form of in-state spending, employment, and support service industries. Conservative estimates of the impact of film on the state credit production spending for generating $1.5B in economic output and just under 16K full time jobs over the past four years.

Today the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees of New Mexico (IATSE 480), responds to a study of the impact of Film jobs across the state, by saying in part:

“We just received the study on the impact of film and film incentives on the New Mexico economy from the New Mexico Film Office. We are still studying the cross tabs but our first impression is that this study confirms what we’ve been saying all along – that movies make money for New Mexico. It is interesting that on average full time movie jobs pay over $50,000 per year. Over 8000 jobs have been created over the last four years. When we include the next phase of the study with the positive impact on tourism and infrastructure spending we’re going to be right around where the last study concluded and that is a huge positive for the state. We want to thank everyone who participated, especially Senator Tim Keller who insisted that a full and impartial study been conducted.”

Hard fought ground gained by industry faithful with a never say die attitude. Multiple films and series are currently filming in New Mexico, with news of TWO more feature films and ANOTHER television pilot in the pipeline!
