The gorgeous, Nordic looking Latina who captured and held onto our hearts since The Mask and Something About Mary, will be headed back to NM!
Cameron Diaz was New Mexico way right about this time last year shooting the upcoming comedy Gambit with Colin Firth. This time out Diaz is set to star in, Agent: Century 21, the story of “a real estate agent [who] gets caught-up in a Mexican drug lord’s kidnapping plot”.
Benicio Del Toro is also rumored to co-star in this purported NM production! Yay!
Gambit is slated for theatrical release this October. Keep it here for Agent: Century 21 updates through the end of the year…
Sidenote: Diaz is also lined-up for a starring role in The Counselor, a film with NM ties from producer Nick Wecshler, writer Cormac McCarthy, to Penelope Cruz and Dean Norris..And that’s one helluva Big Screen String, New Mexico Style.
ICYDK: You can’t throw a stone without hitting someone or something tied to NM Film – but don’t.
Like the intricate threads woven throughout classic literature…such as in a Cormac McCarthy novel turned film…like the Coen Bro’s Oscar® winning turn at the McCarthy best selling novel, No Country for Old Men, so is New Mexico woven into the fiber of Global Film…
Garret Dillahunt the lovably daft undersheriff to Tommy Lee Jones in No Country is named as the lead in the New Mexico production of The Boys of Abu Ghriab.
Another No Country star, Woody Harrelson is soon to be seen in the HBO original film Game Change which recently wrapped Northern N. Mex. filming…
The Coen bros put “pen to paper” for the reboot of the 1966 film Gambit, this time out starring Cameron Diaz & Colin Firth now filming in…yes, New Mexico!
The likewise best selling Dean Koontz novel turned highly anticipated NM movie, Odd Thomas is (back) at work this week.
Odd director Stephen Sommers also churned out 2009′s GI Joe which starred Sienna Miller and Channing Tatum…Sienna’s current project, Just Like a Woman is now casting and set to shoot right here in NM.
Tatum’s upcoming New Mexico movie Ten Year is expected to premiere this year…but you never can tell, another GI Joe co-star Rachel Nichols starred in the NM film Bird of the Air (formerly titled The Loop) and we’re still waiting on its release.
This isn’t the first NM term for Odd Thomas star Anton Yelchin, who is back for another run as he was for the soon to be released thriller Fright Night.
Bridges also worked in NM…in last year’s True Grit along side Matt Damon who first worked NM waay back in ’99 in All the Pretty Horses a film based on the novel of the same name by…you guessed CORMAC MCCARTHY…
And that’s a Big Screen String…New Mexico Style!
have lunch with of course…
Sure Cameron Diaz, Sienna Miller and Scarlett Johansson are in town…but since I posted THIS PIC of Stephen Sommers yesterday…and then saw a report about Joss Whedon today I just had to ask…who would you rather?
Laughing all the way to the bank…and some other important places…
Juxtaposition be thy name of the Forbes 2011 Highest Paid Actresses list.
Boys (XY) still out earn the Girls (XX), but top earnings seem to be on the rise…as New Mexico’s Own Julia Roberts formerly and frequently stood at the front of the pack with $20M per year, still holds steady there, now out-earned by Jolie and Parker by $10M respectively…
Okay…these figures are beginning to make me retch…as the Average Joe regularly sneezes out or sluffs off more than I make at this gig ;)
Anywho…the bulk of the list for you too to gag upon (including the woman who comes in 3rd
still riding on the coattails of association to others….and 4th who is second to none) AFTER THE JUMP – xo!

A dear OneHeadlightInk reader wrote up asking what-in-the-set-signs is filming down south Valencia way…
The film may not as of yesterday been all up in my old prestigious 2×2 mi. digs of beautiful Bosque Farms, à la that unsung Seth Rogen classic Observe and Report, but the GAM signs that have gone so far as Northern N. Mex to smack betwixt Bern Co. & Rio Rancho have turned-up Los Chavez style.
If this post is feeling even less sensical and more cryptic than usual that is because A.) I don’t really know what I’m talking about and B.) Because even if speculation on the part of any of our readers or myself may be correct, we’re not in the practice of real-time dish.
However I will expound further…as I almost always do…that if that sexy Latina Diva Cameron Diaz is down south she’d be remiss not to hit-up Benny’s Mexican Kitchen, stop & shop at the local GameStop where Taylor, the sweetest gamerboy/salesman ever is good for great advice and an adorbs chat-up…maybe he’ll take or at least direct her to his girl’s Jerky Shop…where a certain sessy “Jesse” has been known to partake…
And that’s just what I’d have to say if Cameron Diaz is NOW FILMING in New Mexico!
