The Last Stand Villainous Cast

Posted by on September 12, 2011 | One comment

Das Auto guy, aka most grotesque use of a wood chipper on film guy is set to be muy peligroso in the New Mexico action/western Film “The Last Stand”.

Peter Stormare is no stranger to the villain’s seat, known for his roles in Fargo, The Big Lebowski, Minority Report and Armageddon, where even if he isn’t playing THE Bad Guy he’s freaking unnerving at every turn!

Variety reports Stormare, “would play Burrell, a war vet who is commissioned by the main villain to lead an eight-man crew and take out the sheriff and his team.”

 

Ji-woon Kim will direct Schwarzenegger, Stormare and Austin all recently announced to star in this, the film career comeback vehicle for Schwarzenegger – in which he’ll play the small town sheriff taking on a powerful drug cartel.

The location casting director on this project is the esteemed Jo Edna Boldin (True Grit, No Country For Old Men, Sunshine Cleaning, Terminator Salvation, +++).

Local extras/background casting and crew details expected soon for the “The Last Stand”, set to begin production in Valencia county next month for a January 2013 release!

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.
