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.
Well that dish has been CONFIRMED. The Taos News cracked the case and spills all the deets on the filming that occurred over the weekend atop their snowy mountains.
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.”
Must see midseason drama, The Night Shift has wrapped season one in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
The NBC medical drama is set to start airing its completed eight episode beginning Monday nights this winter. The show shot it’s pilot at I-25 Studios back in the spring, with full production on the seven series episodes getting underway at Albuquerque Studios this fall.
Now completed, the fictitious San Antonio Memorial medical team; including rising stars such as Daniella Alonso, Eoin Macken, JR Lemmon, guest director Eriq La Salle, Breaking Bad Producer, Stewart Lyons and a whole team of top tier New Mexico grown cast & crew, anxiously await their upcoming run on NBC.
“We are wrapped for the first Season of The Night Shift.
Our Stand Ins did an amazing job, thank you, Chloe, Brytnee, Ava, Bri, Dana, Tammy, Kristine, Lynn, Keith, Max, Michael, Marwan, Jacquay, Pablo P & Ken.
A big thank you to all our wonderful background. Everyone was amazing and enjoyed having you on set.”
“After Hours” revolves around the overnight shift in the emergency department of the San Antonio Medical Center.
Former Royal Pains star Jill Flint plays the female lead, BBC actor Eoin Macken stars as former Army medic TC Callahan, who finds himself coming into conflict with his bosses over his unorthodox approach to emergency medicine. Freddy Rodriguez (Six Feet Under) plays embattled hospital administrator, Michael Ragosa.
Flint will play Dr. Jordan Santos, TC’s (Macken) ex-girlfriend, now engaged to someone else. Recently promoted to Chief of the Night Shift, Jordan is ready to prove her worth, all while trying to comply with hospital administration (Rodriguez) and keep a “rogue” TC in check.
Directed by Pierre Morel (From Paris with Love), the hour long Sony Television drama is written and produced by Gabe Sachs and Jeff Judah.

EVEN FURTHER DOWN THE SCROLL: Raw Footage of The Lone Ranger filming near Eagles Nest, NM from August 26, 2012. Depp and Hammer in full dress as Tonto and the Lone Ranger in Train scene.
From set to stage (and everywhere in-between) Johnny Depp certainly has left his impression on NM.
Since the beginning of 2012 the firstname.lastname@example.org has received everything from the interesting to the outlandish by of way info. and photos swirling around the then secretive “Silver Bullet” project.
From the very first studio lot prop pics we chose to release, which made waves with some local industry insiders, to the sweet pics true fans, friends and admirers of the star shared in confidence we’ve enjoyed being taken along for the ride.
Now that Disney’s The Lone Ranger has wrapped, here are a select few, previously unreleased pics:

As we’ve been following for you here, New Mexico just recently wrapped standing-in for 1960s era Las Vegas, NV, in the “Untitled Las Vegas Project” television series pilot, which has been ordered for the 2012-2013 fall season on CBS primetime!
CBS has just released this first-look at all the show’s stars in action, including the decidedly distinct look of the Southwest that NM lends to the series.
This comes hours after the casting co. which staffed the show with hundreds of local extra and background talent, released this info. on their Facebook page:
“”ULVP” (Untitled Las Vegas Project) New Mexico *UPDATE* – Afraid we have bad news for NM about this project. Rumor (from a producer on the show) is that they will be filming the series from the “Untitled Las Vegas Project” pilot shot here in NM…..in LA (not sure if he meant Los Angeles or Louisiana). Hope the “rumor” isn’t true!!” -On Location Casting
Special nod to CLB, one of our local faves for her work on the series pilot!
Today: On the Roswell, NM set of The Rambler, Dermot Mulroney getting into the swing of things, bloodied at the hands of NM’s Own Vince McDaniel.
Now in post-production this full length feature has a ready and waiting audience, built-in from the avid fans/followers of the original short by Calvin Lee Reeder.
Mañana: The fabled creature that is the impossibly perfect looking January Jones is just weeks away from co-starring with John McCain AKA the incomparable Ed Harris in this summer’s NM shoot of Sweetwater.
Yesterday: Indie dramedy, As Cool As I Am has been in the can for sometime now. The film starring Claire Danes, James Marsden, Sarah Bolger, Thomas Mann and PETER FONDA, shot in NM last summer. Here are a some stills from the Identity Films production awaiting distribution…
While the TNT pilot for “Tin Star” has recently been axed by the cable network, CBS is moving forward with a 60s period, crime drama; based on real life western Sheriff, Ralph Lamb.
The “Untitled Vegas Project” pilot production just recently wrapped in northern New Mexico, with principal shooting at Santa Fe Studios and locations in and around Las Vegas, NM.
This Wednesday the so-called Tiffany network is set to announce the Quaid led series as an official part of their 2012-2013 fall line-up.
This marks the first starring television role for Quaid. The iconic Ralph Lamb was on hand for part of the pilot filming, watching the acclaimed film star portray him, and said, “I thought he did a magnificent job.”
Michael Chiklis (The Shield), Carrie-Anne Moss (The Matrix), and Jason O’Mara (Terra Nova) also star.
Now that we’re all back at work or at the free clinic you’ll likely need some reading material.
Here in two back issues of popular magazines you’ll find some relief from the travesties of the world (chief among them front and center on mag #1).
Crack the cover and in the pictured issue of People magazine, Albuquerque series star Mary McCormack gives an inside look (literally) into her life on set filming her USA network hit series In Plain Sight.
Within the pages of O’s Summer Bliss Issue you’ll be treated to an aha! moment a la NM’s Own beloved Bryan Cranston, star of AMC’s Emmy winning series Breaking Bad.
Both Albuquerque based productions will be returning to TV in just days. The latest episode of In Plain Sight will air on Sunday July 10 and the SEASON PREMIERE of Breaking Bad airs Sunday July 17 – just the thought takes my breath away…
Will the new “monkey on your back” that is the fly on the wall return? Will Gale survive? Will Gomez ever get that Bloomin Onion? Will Lisa, Andrea and I (et al) melt w/every Jesse, “Yo!”?
If you felt a great presence come and then go from the Land of Enchantment well then you are in tune with your Mighty Morphin-ness.
Only because it’s “a wrap” do I feel comfortable letting you all know that the great Amy Jo Johnson was in your midst while filming the NM movie Tiger Eyes, based on the novel by Judy Blume.
Every time I say that I feel like all the presenters of last year’s award season when they had to say, “Precious, based on the novel Push by Sapphire“. That load of required info. was even better than, “The Artist formerly known as…”
WAIT – I’m not really saying that because nothing’s better than PRINCE. Except maybe PINK which was just a typo in the last sentence that obviously should’ve stayed!
I hope Miss Johnson isn’t too annoyed with her rabid fan base of Morphins – Amy Jo, embrace it. Love is love, think of it as being comfortable in your Cherness.
With a blog post almost as vast and colorful as our NM vistas, actress Olivia Wilde waxes romantic over the beauty and goodness of our capital city.
The Cowboys and Aliens star regularly tweeted little glimpses of her observations and experiences these many months of filming in the Land of Enchantment and she bids us adieu in this quaint novella where she wraps with:
“I have really enjoyed my experience in Santa Fe, and there is so much more I could write about (maybe I will) but for now, consider this a love letter to the above mentioned ingredients to my happy summer in my latest home away from home.”
Thank you Miss Wilde for the love letter that leaves us so much warmer and fuzzier than the the online morning after cab fair on the nightstand that is a Tweety-bye-bye.
Don’t forget to join our quest to get the likes of Cowboys back to NM for a local premiere gala!
