Posted by on July 11, 2012 | 2 comments

New Mexico native, Demi Moore may be hesitant to return to her home state, but her daughter Rumer Willis is set to star in NM indie, “The Odd Way Home”.

July 10, 2012, SANTA FE —New Mexico Film Office Director Nick Maniatis announced today that New Mexico production companies Slant Productions and Sandia Media will start production on the independent feature film, “The Odd Way Home.” Production will begin mid July through August and will shoot in and around southern New Mexico including Las Cruces, Deming, Hillsboro and Silver City.
The production will employ at least 38 New Mexico crewmembers including fifteen 15 interns from New Mexico State University (NMSU) in Las Cruces and 22 New Mexican principal and background talent.

Starring Rumer Willis (The House Bunny, Hostage), Chris Marquette (The Girl Next Door, Alpha Dog), Brendan Sexton III (The Killing), Veronica Cartwright (Alien, Witches of Eastwick) and Bruce Altman (Matchstick Men, Glengarry Glen Ross).

Directed by local New Mexico resident Rajeev Nirmalakhandan who worked for Universal and Dreamworks before teaching film at NMSU’s Creative Media Institute. Produced by locals Peter Touche (Goats, Blaze You Out) of Sandia Media, Patrick Nelson and Victor Kearney as executive producer.

“This film would not have been possible without the support of NMSU’s Creative Media Institute and its talented students,” Peter Touche stated. “We are also most grateful to the communities of Las Cruces, Deming, Hillsboro and Silver City, all of whom have enabled this project. This is truly a New Mexico project born and bred.”

Written by Rajeev Nirmalakhandan and Jason Ronstadt, The Odd Way Home tells the story of Duncan (Chris Marquette), a man with autism, who meets Maya (Rumer Willis) escaping her life in Los Angeles. They embark on an inspirational journey though the great American Southwest.
