TNT Drama Series ≠ a go in New Mexico

Posted by on February 6, 2012 | Comments Off on TNT Drama Series ≠ a go in New Mexico

UPDATE 5/8/12:( After a promising report that Tin Star had not been kicked to the curb and effectively maintained a pulse upon delivery to its network earlier in the year, the prospective series, Tin Star has now gone the way of another New Mexico/TNT Network pilot; The Rabbit Factory pilot filmed here back in 2010.

Here is the full scoop on the dump from Deadline.

GATEWAY, the Western television series pilot Warner Horizon Television filmed in New Mexico under the name “Tin Star” last fall, has reportedly received the greenlight.

According to a December 2011 press release, TNT had ordered a slew of new shows aimed to fill the 2012-2013 season, and now our sources tell us that we can expect the series to return for regular production.

Gateway is a “Western saga revolving around three brothers who step in to save their town when their father, the town sheriff, is murdered. The brothers are pitted against a corrupt cattle baron who is determined to make the town his own. The cast includes 1Cam Gigandet, Keir O’Donnell, David Denman, 4Karen Allen, Ana De La Reguera, 2Keith Carradine, 3Donal Logue, Shanno Lucio, Eric Lang, Anthony Lapaglia and Bill Sadler.”

The TNT show is expected to join the A&E western drama series, LONGMIRE now in pre-production right here in New Mexico!

Very good news, if it holds to be true, as the state is set to say goodbye to both Breaking Bad and In Plain Sight this year.

Annnd THE LONE RANGER RIDES AGAIN!!!

Posted by on September 23, 2011 | 6 comments

As I guaranteed your Depp loving souls (and here Johnny himself cooed words of comfort)…

MULTIPLE outlets are reporting, and Deadline gets the scoop, with “sources close to the production” saying that Disney WILL in fact ride with The Lone Ranger, including the coveted Johnny Depp as Tonto, cost-cutting director Gore Verbinski and producer Jerry Bruckheimer still on board.

The budget overhaul that’s been in the works for weeks is said to be trimmed by over $30M, opening-up the horizon for an expected early Q1 2012 production start…

Disney Drama in the Desert: Hi-Yo Whoa!

Posted by on August 13, 2011 | 3 comments

UPDATE 08/14/11: #ontherecord The Lone Ranger WILL RIDE, New Mexico style! “I guarantee it.” Joe Namath style! So says I.

UPDATE 08/17/11:

“I think everything will work out as it should,”
– Johnny Depp

…on the fate of NM’s Own Lone Ranger amid current “reports” that budget rebuilding talks are underway to commence on the production since calls for its “break-down” last week…”crew was told Wednesday night to hold off on tearing down a Western town set that had been built for the production in New Mexico”.

Disney has officially strapped-on its fancy dancin’ spurs and is really kickin’ things up something fierce.

In events reminiscent of the great (Disney née Marvel) Avengers script debacle of…well, earlier this year, reports began flooding the web (and our inbox) Friday night that the great Mouse House in the sky is saying neigh nay to the sky-high price tag on the Gore Verbinski sure to be epic version of The Lone Ranger starring the anything but cheap as he is valuable Johnny Depp and the incomparable Helena Bonham Carter (plus that doubly hot guy Armie Hammer as the masked man himself).

If a ruckus is required to balance that budget and/or to keep the already globaly amped-up buzz about this film rolling to achieve rolling tape…then we’re well on our way…Almost as soon as the PRODUCTION SHUT-DOWN NEWS hit the wires like some unholy gale force wall of New Mexico grown tumbleweeds VARIETY was quick to report that “sources close to the production” are saying whoa silver! The film “is far from dead”.

As any “skilled rider” will tell ya’ a little, “easy, easy, there big fella” can go a long way…so New Mexico may well keep hold of the mouse in our house as this story is just getting started! Giddyup!

And I say again (I’m looking at you New Mexico Tourism), let the Kid rest in peace we’ve got real life (south)western dramz hitting the global market on the regular!

Avengers Interrupted

Posted by on May 1, 2011 | 4 comments

UPDATE 5/2/11 Though the statement released by Marvel Studios today (below), is being batted about all over the web as possibly being a ploy, a conspiracy or a cover-up, OneHeadlightInk.com can confirm:

The Avengers production moved ahead in Albuquerque today, business as usual. Samuel Jackson is here, film actually rolled – CONFIRMED

Reports were flying this morn’ that a New Mexican or at least someone in Samuel L. Jackson’s beloved Nuevo Mexico had perpetrated a crime against all that is holy in the superhero world by HIGHjacking from Sam one of the most coveted scripts in comic movie history…

Like the much lored tale of the then latest version of the iPhone being planted stoopidly left behind in a coffee shop or brew haus…this here story is sure to be chalk full of twists and turns.

News ~broke last week that media outlets were being offered the buy. This weekend it has been confirmed that production of the blockbuster in the making is halted until further notice and sources tell Film Fan Review that the script indeed remains on the loose BUT WAS NOT STOLEN from New Mexico USA but rather lifted in either Burbank or Los Angeles California, UFO.

Mama smells stunt and/or rewrites from the production that is sure to yield many of both…in any case this should not go down in the annals of New Mexico Film history as a black eye on our great state…

Unless fiscal opportunist “Harry” Winston Brooks or NM Film seductress Saboteur Susana don’t each have a solid alibi….

UPDATE 5PM (MST): Several NM Set Insiders are stating to us that they have received no notification of a production breach or break and will be reporting to their jobs at next call.

UPDATE 5/2/11 Marvel Studios has released this statement:
“Filming for ‘The Avengers’ is active, on schedule and going well,”

Avengers Through September

Posted by on April 30, 2011 | Comments Off on Avengers Through September

While we’re learning but scant tidbits from the intense media coverage of Marvel’s Avengers, currently in production here in NM, such as how Mark Ruffalo will achieve the Hulk Bulk, that Captain America will get a new costume for this side of the pond, that Thor says expect tension, and what the character set chairs look like…

The latest in supplementary casting news is as follows from FeatureFilmCasting.com:

Walt Disney co-owned Marvel Studios has begun production on the superhero blockbuster film “Marvel’s The Avengers”. There will be ongoing casting for day players, extras, stand-ins, and photo doubles in Albuquerque, Cleveland, and New York City throughout the entire production which will run through September 2010.

“Marvel’s The Avengers” is being produced by Marvel Studios’ President, Kevin Feige, and executive produced by Alan Fine, Stan Lee, Louis D’Esposito, Patty Whitcher, and Jon Favreau. Marvel Studios’ Jeremy Latcham and Victoria Alonso will co-produce.

Based on the hugely successful Marvel comic book series, “Marvel’s The Avengers” brings together the mightiest Super Hero characters as they all assemble together on screen for the first time. “Marvel’s The Avengers” is the first feature to be fully owned, marketed and distributed by Disney, which acquired Marvel in 2009. The studio’s plan for “Marvel’s The Avengers” is so enterprising that many of the starring actors involved in these recent Marvel superhero pictures have been signed with options for as many as nine films.

Shooting is taking place at Albuquerque Studios, and will also take place at Grumman Studios in Bethpage, New York, and at Steiner Studios in Brooklyn, New York City. Set construction at Steiner Studios is slated to begin in November and the production is expected to use the facility for months. There will be 2 months of filming in Cleveland, Ohio where over 2,000 extras are expected to be cast.

Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures has acquired worldwide distribution rights for “Marvel’s The Avengers” from Paramount for $115 million in a deal which also included Iron Man 3. “Marvel’s The Avengers” is scheduled to be released in theaters on May 4, 2012.

Old Cars, Dog Tricks – NM

Posted by on March 24, 2010 | One comment

Old Car New Dog

The New Mexico shoot of Steven Soderbergh’s Knockout, starring Channing Tatum, Ewan McGregor, Michael Douglas, Antonio Banderas and mixed-martial arts beauty Gina Carano is heading to the old car, loose dog capital of NM which bodes well for the recent casting call for exactly that.

According to the New Mexico Film Office web site the production “is seeking beat up cars and dogs” for this week’s filming…surely that’s is to say, dogs and beat-up cars.

Cast & crew worked in the Santa Fe snow yesterday.

AAAll Signs Point to Thor

Posted by on March 22, 2010 | Comments Off on AAAll Signs Point to Thor

Movie Web published some pics of a certain comic book hero’s sweeping views of the New Mexico desert (remember in the world according to Nick Lachey teaching J. Simps: two ‘ss”s is after dinner dulce and our expansive vistas are one ‘s’), much to the chagrin the site’s readers who maligned the secret set shots – we like ’em.

But we’re positive like that!
