Holy Batman v Superman, New Mexico!

Posted by on September 24, 2014 | Comments Off

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’.

Behold the family “Griswold”

Posted by on September 24, 2014 | Comments Off

New Vacation Movie Cast to film in New Mexico

Joining the original matriarch and patriarch of National Lampoon’s first family of Vacations, the latest versions of the oft’ re-cast Griswold children have been revealed.

As recently discussed on-air, Audrey and Rusty have gone and grown-up. The role of Rusty, previously made famous by Anthony Michael Hall, Jason Lively and Johnny Galecki will be reprised by none other than comedy superstar, Ed Helms. In the Vacation reboot, now in production, Rusty has married up nicely, landing Christina Applegate.

Just announced this week, Audrey Griswold’s Juliette Lewis/Dana Hill/Dana Barron adult shoes will be filled by comedic gem, Leslie Mann. Like Rusty, it seems Audrey has espoused quite the hottie in landing “Thor” himself, aka Chris Hemsworth!

The only official word on filming is out of Atlanta, Georgia here, but OneHeadlightInk.com has it on good authority that filming will be shared with New Mexico. Leads that the production is headed this way are bolstered by this casting call out of the New Mexico film office, touting a WARNER BROS. FEATURE FILM CASTING FOR PAID EXTRAS. Check out the entire post here.

It is for certain that the present day Griswold’s, rumored to be led by Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo, will hit the big screen once again come 2015, produced by New Line Cinema, a unit of Warner Brothers Entertainment…

Shirley MacLaine to accept Lifetime Achievement Award at Santa Fe Independent Film Festival

Posted by on September 23, 2014 | Comments Off

maclaine

The Santa Fe Independent Film Festival presents its sixth annual event October 15th-19th, 2014 in downtown Santa Fe. The beloved Shirley MacLaine will receive SFIFF’s Lifetime Achievement Award and introduce the film Elsa & Fred at the Lensic Performing Arts Center Sat. Oct. 18th at 6:30 pm.

Santa Fe Independent Film Festival is invested in Santa Fe as a destination for film. The festival brings cutting-edge programming, the latest independent films and directors, Native cinema, New Mexico films, student films, and masters discussions with top directors, writers, and artists, all in the setting of downtown Santa Fe.

Shirley MacLaine, a veteran in American film, television and theater has won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress four times for her roles inThe Apartment, Irma la Douce, Terms of Endearment andMadame Sousatzka. She won the Academy Award for Best Actress in 1983 for her iconic role in Terms of Endearment. MacLaine has since been honored with the Golden Globe Cecil B. DeMille Award in 1998 and in 2012, she received the 40th AFI Life Achievement Award, the most honorable praise given in the film industry.

The Awards Ceremony will be followed by Shirley MacLaine’s newest film Elsa & Fred. Elsa & Fred is the story of two people who at the end of the road, discover that it’s never too late to love and make dreams come true. Elsa has lived for the past 60 years dreaming of a moment that Fellini had already envisaged: the scene in ‘La Dolce Vita’ at the Fontana di Trevi. After losing his wife, Fred feels disturbed and confused and his daughter decides that it would be best if he moves into a smaller apartment where he ends up meeting Elsa. From that moment on, everything changes. Elsa bursts into his life like a whirlwind, determined to teach him that the time he has left is precious and that he should enjoy it. Fred surrenders to Elsa’s bold, beautiful madness and learns how to live again. After learning about Elsa’s terminal illness, he decides to take her to Rome and reenact the famous scene at the Fontana di Trevi. Co-starring Christopher Plummer and George Segal.

Embracing Santa Fe’s reputation as a city with great theaters, the festival features the hottest selections of international and American independent films at each of the art house theaters in Santa Fe including the Lensic Performing Arts Center, Center for Contemporary Arts, Jean Cocteau Cinema, and The Screen at Santa Fe University of Art and Design. The festival also features over 100 films, educational panels, Master’s discussions, and five nights of parties at the hottest downtown venues in Santa Fe.

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

Posted by on September 12, 2014 | Comments Off

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.
