UPDATE 7/2/2013: Breaking Bad creator, Vince Gillagan says Saul Goodman Spinoff Moving ‘Full Speed Ahead’ -The Wrap TV
As the world anxiously awaits the final eight episodes of the “best show on television”, Breaking Bad fans are equally curious for the verdict on what comes next for cast & crew.
Even before we learn the fate of Walter White & Co. Br Ba devotees look forward to the most likely spin-off in which the best, slimiest, lawless lawyer around, Saul Goodman will once again ease all with, “Better Call Saul”.
Best news for New Mexico is that if a deal is indeed inked for the series, the most likely place for the Saul Goodman led series to take place would be original series home, Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Home to the AMC series, Albuquerque Studios (The Avengers, The Lone Ranger) is well seasoned and at the ready for the return of all things Saul.
Last fall NBC shot the gritty drama pilot “After Hours” across the interstate, as a prospect for last season’s television schedule. After not making the first cut, then being volleyed back and forth from the pick-up list to the tentative list, an off-cycle short order has been placed for at least four episodes of the show.
And as we’ve previously reported, up north some very special goings-on are going on around the return of the A&E hit series, Longmire and the highly anticipated Seth MacFarlane adaptation of Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey for Fox television.
In addition to this beautiful specimen of arachnid (as expertly handled by professional scorpion wrangler Dusty Webb), we’ve recently discovered that SUPER cute Martial Arts star Bren Foster (above left) has been added to the Force of Execution cast. He is here in Albuquerque right now filming with Steven Seagal, Danny Trejo, Ving Rhames and many talented locals!
The film, currently shooting downtown – next headed to I-25 Studios, is a reunion on many levels. Foster and Seagal recently worked together on Maximum Conviction, which also paired Force director Keoni Waxman and producer Phillip B. Goldfine (above right).
There was a spike in web chatter when it was first reported that Seagal would be re-teaming with Machete co-star Danny Trejo (pictured below with local actor Joshua R. Aragon) for this project!
New Mexico Film production vet, Jenny Gabrielle (SEAL Team Six: The Raid on Osama Bin Laden, Sweetwater, The Banshee Chapter, Georgia O’Keffee, The Dry Land) also stars!
Hometown super star Steven Michael Quezada was slated to appear in the film, but his current Breaking Bad shooting schedule conflicted with filming dates.
Force of Execution is the story about a crime lord torn between his legacy and his desire to get out of the life of crime that has built his empire, when a new player to the scene tries to use the town anti-hero’s network to climb to power. The only friend the crime lord has is his assassin protégé who has troubles of his own. An epic battle of underbosses and crime lords. Only one will come out alive.
Seagal, Goldfine, Benjamin Sacks, Jim Burleson, and Binh Dang, Producers.

Though the most trustedsite for production info. tags Reno NV as the filming location for this Dame Helen Mirren, Joe Pesci, Bryan Cranston film, Love Ranch (now in limited release) was actually shot in bulk right here in Nuevo México back in ’07/’08, on location and at our very own, newly labeled I-25 Studios – where productions continue to roll.
Director Taylor Hackford recently gave interview to Beliefnet detailing his perspective of the story behind Reno’s first legal brothel and saying the following about filming in and around the Q:
“We got a tax credit to shoot there. But it’s not dissimilar (to Nevada). It’s that austere, monochromatic, look, bare but still beautiful. Juxtaposing that natural exterior with an artificial interior, where you’re never supposed to know whether it’s day or night, you’re supposed to lose yourself. That juxtaposition was a wonderful stylistic metaphor. But we did go to Reno for three days. It has not been the success story Vegas has and you can still capture the ethos of the 70’s because so much hasn’t changed.” – Taylor Hackford to Beliefnet
