Lovely Natalie Back to NM?

Posted by on August 30, 2012 | Comments Off on Lovely Natalie Back to NM?

The beautiful and talented Natalie Portman is no stranger to NM.

It was here, while she was busy catching the eye of ““Thor”“, that Santa Fean’s caught the starlet out and about. And in northern N.M., Portman delivered a heart wrenching performance along with her equally riveting co-stars, Tobey McGuire and Jake Gyllenhaal in 2009’s “Brothers”.

Now the Oscar winner is set to produce and star in the upcoming Western, “Jane Got a Gun”.

Buzz on the wire is that Michael Fassbender is also in for a leading role in the project. Off the wire, the buzz is the possibility of the film landing in NM for at least part of its early 2013 production.

According to the Hollywood Reporter:
Jane Got a Gun centers on a woman whose outlaw husband returns home riddled with bullet wounds and barely alive. When her husband’s gang eventually tracks him down to finish the job, she is forced to reach out to an ex-lover and ask if he will help defend her farm.

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.
