Is this iconic face set to grace the directors chair, writers seat and starring role in “The Homesman”, New Mexico style?

As Variety reported last spring:

EXCLUSIVE: …Tommy Lee Jones has lined up his next directing vehicle, as he’s set to write and direct THE HOMESMAN, a period pic he’ll also produce and topline. Story follows a pioneer woman and a claim-jumping rascal of a man (Jones) who usher three insane women on an odyssey from Nebraska to Iowa. Jones made his directorial debut with the 1995 TNT telepic THE GOOD OLD BOYS, which starred Jones and his fellow Oscar winners Sissy Spacek and Frances McDormand, as well as an up-and-coming thesp named Matt Damon.

Whispers in the wind say that this Tommy Lee Jones helmed project is tentatively scheduled to shoot in New Mexico for three months starting this March!

Complimenting Jones’s writing, producing and directing it is exclusively being reported that acclaimed cinematographer/writer/director, Rodrigo Prieto (Argo, Brokeback Mountain, Babel, 21 Grams) has signed on as Director of Production.

AND if The Wrap’s exclusive report holds true, none other than Oscar winners, Meryl Streep and Hilary Swank will co-star!

Fingers crossed! We loves us some Tommy Lee Jones ACTION!

Another NM Production Starring Cameron Diaz on the horizon?

Posted by on July 29, 2012 | One comment

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.

Thanks Mac

January Jones and Ed Harris set for Sweetwater, New Mexico

Posted by on April 21, 2012 | 9 comments

State Film Office Press Release 6/27/12:

Many started to speculate about a Mad Men hiatus when Don Draper, nay that really handsome guy, Jon Hamm was spotted sporting the Grizzly Adams look.

Now we know that his Mad co-star January Jones will be at work right here in New Mexico come July.

Last week Deadline confirmed that Jones will join Ed Harris in the 1800’s Western Drama, Sweetwater.

Harris has previous experience with the film’s directors, Logan and Noah Miller with whom he starred in their original film, Touching Home. The star is also no stranger to NM, with his recent turn as John McCain in HBO’s political drama, Game Change.

Sweetwater is the story of a widow (Jones) who enlists the help of the town sheriff (Harris) to take revenge on the sheep ranchers who have murdered her husband.

Multiple sources are reporting that production is scheduled to begin in New Mexico in July.
