October 8 — Two feature films will be shot in Santa Fe in October.
Outlaw Land began filming in Santa Fe and Albuquerque in September and will continue into October, and Rust will be in town in early November, the New Mexico Film Office has reported.
“Outlaw Land has yet to land in Santa Fe,” said Jennifer LaBar-Tapia, director of the Santa Fe Film Office. “Rust has been here a few weeks. They are at one of our five western ranches.”
Alec Baldwin stars in and is one of the producers of Rust, the story of a 13-year-old boy abandoned to himself and his younger brother after their parents died in 1880s Kansas, New- Mexico doubling for Kansas.
“We can do any genre of film here in New Mexico, but historically and today, a genre notable for our state is the western,” New Mexico Film Office director Amber Dodson said in a press release.
Rust is produced by Rust Movie Productions LLC and directed by Joel Souza, who also directed Crown Vic, Break Night, Christmas Trade, and Ghost Squad.
Rust will employ approximately 75 crew members, 22 lead actors, and 230 background talent, all from New Mexico. Outlaw Land will employ approximately 20 crew members from New Mexico, 15 leading state actors and 150 in the background and as extras, the New Mexico Film Office reported.
Outlaw Land is directed by Anthony C. Ferrante (Sharknado) and produced by Keystone Films LLC and Daniel Lusko (Persecuted).
Outlaw Land is another tale in the Butch Cassidy saga, this time fleeing authorities after stealing a train.
“We’re excited to be making an iconic western with local New Mexicans at the helm,” Lusko said in a press release.
The short film Rude Girl will be produced in Albuquerque in October. The production will employ approximately 40 team members from New Mexico, five lead actors and five background and extras.
