Star Turns – Good for New Mexico

Posted by on November 4, 2012 | Comments Off on Star Turns – Good for New Mexico

Wahlberg in Albuquerque, NM last month for Lone Survivor

Study or no study, New Mexico banks on long running series like Breaking Bad, In Plain Sight, Crash and Longmire as the life’s blood of its film production jobs and statewide peripheral spending. Mega hits like The Avengers and the hotly anticipated, Lone Ranger film spike excitement and international recognition of the state.

Repeat appearances too, of stars like Ed Harris who’s heading back for a third run in NMFilm, boost awareness of the local industry. Following his turn as John McCain in the Emmy winning HBO movie “Game Change”, and work on the recently wrapped period western “Sweetwater” with January Jones, Harris is now making news with his latest NM project, “Frontera” – costarring the lovely Eva Longoria.

Superstar Mark Wahlberg is watched the world over, and as we told you here, is now a two-term NMFilm star. At OHI we hear nothing but praise from cast & crew who have worked with the actor/producer (The Fighter, The Perfect Storm/Boardwalk Empire, Entourage) and proud family man, who is genuinely interested and concerned about those around him. The star has been quick to praise the state’s film crews and locales – he’s one of the good guys who are lending the state some positive notoriety with his return to local sets for his back-to-back turn in the NM productions, “2Guns” and “Lone Survivor”.

New Mexico and Louisiana to Share Wahlberg & Washington in “2 Guns”

Posted by on March 21, 2012 | 2 comments

CONFIRMED!

As I eventually eluded to here, buried far beneath my retro-New Mexico, non-“encounter” with Mark Wahlberg story…

I can now report that Washington and Wahlberg are officially ON for a June shoot between New Mexico and Louisiana for the Universal Pictures production of “2 Guns”.

The ACTION ADVENTURE flick tells the story of a DEA agent and an undercover Naval Intelligence officer who are unwittingly investigating each other and who steal mob money for the good guys. They realize later that the mob actually got them to steal $50 million from the CIA.

Fresh off Contraband, which also starred Wahlberg, Baltasar Kormakur is at the helm to direct. The script, based on the graphic novel Steven Grant, is penned by Blake Masters.

Local cast & crew info. to follow!!!
