Feature films ‘Rust,’ ‘Outlaw Land’ shoot in Santa Fe, Albuquerque

SANTA FE – 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 in October, and Rust will film in town through early November, the New Mexico Film Office said.

“Outlaw Land hasn’t landed in Santa Fe yet,” said Jennifer LaBar-Tapia, director of the Santa Fe Film Office. “Rust has been here a couple of weeks. You’re on one of our five western ranches.”

Alec Baldwin stars and is one of the producers of Rust, the story of a 13-year-old boy who has to care for himself and his younger brother after the death of his parents in Kansas in the 1880s, with New Mexico doubling for Kansas.

“We can do any genre of film here in New Mexico, but historically and currently western is a standout genre for our state,” Amber Dodson, director of the New Mexico Film Office, said in a press release.

Rust will have approximately 75 crew members, 22 leading actors, and 230 background talent, all from New Mexico. Outlaw Land will employ approximately 20 New Mexico crew members, 15 state actors, and 150 background and 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 (Pursued).

Outlaw Land is yet another retelling of the Butch Cassidy saga, this time on the run from the authorities after a train was robbed.

“We’re excited to do an iconic western with local New Mexicans on top,” Lusko said in a press release.

The short film Rude Girl will be produced in Albuquerque in October. The production will employ approximately 40 New Mexico crew members, five lead actors and five background and extras.
