New Mexico will soon have some Hollywood heavy hitters – and it’s all happening in Las Cruces.
According to the New Mexico Film Office, Oscar winner Clint Eastwood’s latest project, “The Mule,” will film in the City of the Crosses in late July. The production is completing its work in Augusta, Ga., before heading to New Mexico.
Starring alongside Eastwood are Bradley Cooper, Michael Peña, Taissa Farmiga, Laurence Fishburne, Jill Flint, Dianne Wiest, Ignacio Serricchio and Alison Eastwood.
“We’re thrilled to welcome another production to New Mexico,” said Nick Maniatis, state Film Office director. “We’re proud to see the film industry continuing to grow in and around Las Cruces and throughout southern New Mexico.”
The film is directed by Eastwood, and the screenplay was written by Nick Schenk. The pair worked together on 2008’s “Gran Torino.”
It is from Warner Bros. Pictures and Imperative Pictures.
