Filming in Louisiana is well under way on the young adult horror film adapted from Twilight author, Stephenie Meyer’s best selling novel of the same name, “The Host”.
As we’ve been following for you here, Saoirse Ronan stars as 20-year-old Melanie Stryder. Melanie lives in a not-too-distant future in which unseen parasite invaders are taking over people’s bodies, creating a bizarrely complacent group of people. Well, it’s not so bizarre to the ones who have been taken over, which is most of the population…except Melanie. When Melanie is captured and her body and mind invaded, she refuses to give in, retaining many of her human memories and fighting with the parasite for control.
Filming began last month in Louisiana and is/has been slated to shoot in NM before wrap, for release on March 29, 2013.
There’s sure to be a run on Grandma’s Glaucoma Rx now…
The long awaited New Mexico production of A&E’s original series, Longmire will premiere June 3rd, 2012.
Though casting and principal photography are just getting underway here in NM, for the first full season the griping drama series, the show’s pilot is episode is ready to go.
Back in August, 2011 the Associated Press Reported:
CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — Absaroka County doesn’t exist on Wyoming maps, but it has its own county-24 license plate. Craig Johnson has a stack to prove it. One was affixed to each car in the A&E television pilot “Longmire,” and Johnson couldn’t resist taking a few home.
“If the TV show does get done, I’d really enjoy seeing characters from Wyoming who act as if they have IQs above room temperature,” Johnson recently told the Star-Tribune.
He’ll get that chance next summer.
In an email to his fans, Johnson announced Monday that A&E picked up a 10-episode season of “Longmire,” a TV series based on Johnson’s novels about Walt Longmire, sheriff of the least-populated county of the least-populated state.
The show will star Australian Robert Taylor (Agent Jones in “The Matrix”) as Walt and Portland native Katee Sackhoff (“Battlestar Galactica”) as foul-mouthed deputy Victoria Morretti. Lou Diamond Phillips and Cassidy Freeman (“Smallville”) will also star.
Johnson is the author of seven Walt Longmire mystery novels, beginning with “The Cold Dish” in 2004. Walt lives and works in the fictional Absaroka County, based on Johnson’s home territory of Ucross, population 25. Locals refer to the area as the UCLA of Wyoming — Ucross, Clearmont, Leiter and Arvada. It lies between Buffalo and Sheridan at the base of the Big Horn Mountains.
In a recent interview at his log cabin in Ucross, Johnson explained why he’s so excited about a show in which Wyoming characters are more than just plot devices. Watch one of those CSI cop dramas, and inevitably a case brings a big-city cop to some back-water Western town. One episode portrayed a Wyoming sheriff “like he was in some road show from Li’l Abner,” Johnson said.
“I mean, can you give us a little more credit than that?”
Besides the pilot, the deal calls for a full season of nine more episodes. Each will be shot in northern New Mexico, but Wyoming viewers may recognize some of the landmarks. Producers are interested in shooting some Wyoming landscapes and possibly bringing Walt’s white sheriff’s department Bronco to film driving Wyoming roads.
As a creative consultant for the pilot, Johnson spent three weeks on set in New Mexico. People ask him what it was like to walk into a world he created, to meet the people and see the places he had written about for the past eight years. He compares it to walking past a house plant every day when, one morning, the plant says, “Good morning. How are you?”
“It’s great, but weird. Odd but wonderful,” Johnson said.
“They built the entire Absaroka County Sheriff’s Department. They had four Broncos there with the emblems on them. There was Walt’s log cabin. Everything they did, they did with such a sense of detail.”
Until recently, Johnson hadn’t seen the pilot. He was on tour for his seventh Walt Longmire book and the first to make it on the New York Times Best Seller list, “Hell is Empty,” when executives asked him to fly to Warner Brothers Studios for the screening. He had three book events planned that day, so his wife, Judy, went instead.
But as a surprise for their 13th wedding anniversary, she arranged for a copy to be sent to the house — for their eyes only.
Johnson had half convinced himself that the pilot wouldn’t be picked up, that it wouldn’t be able to capture the essence of his characters.
“Not-much-to-my-surprise, it was fantastic,” he wrote in his email announcement. “Now, the wait was like agony. The performances were magnificent, the camera work inspiring, the sets and location breathtaking, the writing as sharp as a razor.
“What if A&E passed on this? It would be criminal.”
In the end, A&E didn’t pass on it. And next summer, all of Wyoming can see what a county-24 license plate looks like.
Here’s your sneak-peek:
Palin camp officially and uniformly “denounces” NM Production of “Game Change”.
Because NM doesn’t play host to pappers or stalkerazzi (like those fiends pictured in thumb 4) nor well publicize when & where we have gaggles of worldwide superstars (good deal?) big cities (even Cleavland) still have us beat for all the great set pics.
Here from NYC, courtesy of my brother from another mother, are a boatload of Labor Day weekend pics of the WHOLE AVENGERS cast all suited-up.
Though just a babe himself, remember my beloved uses A LOT of salty language not suitable for young readers…ENJOY the pics and save your dlisted reading enjoyment to times away from preschool eyes, like at WORK.
Here are a few thumbnails from Michael K‘s gallery with which you can whet your eyes anytime…
Since wrapping things up here in The Land of ‘secluded’ Enchantment back in late July The Avengers have taken-up in Cleavland as scheduled.
This is set video from earlier in the week of some downtown demolition as orchestrated for the sure to be action-packed flick.
And from the online imps who post pirated theater footage here is the film’s extended teaser trailer as it rolled at the conclusion of Captain America: The First Avenger last month.
The New Mexico/Ohio production will open wide next spring!
AVENGERS, NM – The biggest production the state has ever seen has wrapped its New Mexico run for the hotness of Cleavland…
Though gone they’ll doubtfully ever be forgotten…top secret as it was ;)
Just in time for their farewell to New Mexico we get this first peek at the film and the promise of perhaps a soupçon more if you hustle into theaters NOW to see Captain America: The First Avenger…
If you know me, you prolly know my affinity for pectorals (and shoulders), a certain Spiderman action figure (and a certain hubs)…but I digress with an opportunity to post my personal favorite image released from Dreamworks of the wholly NM Film FRIGHT NIGHT!
Not to be outdone by The Avengers (because I won’t let them), tight as they might be holding to the Fright Night movie trailer or even a teaser, or even a gosh darn official poster, SKG/Dreamworks has teased with a viewing of several clips of 3D footage of the film…and though nary hide nor hair of a New Mexican may have been present for the event we’re still blessed with a new image via CineMovie.tv – ¡woot¡
p.s. Sadly, yes horseradish can be too hot…
