New Mexico was the right location for Taylor Sheridan’s latest project.

The Oscar nominee was at the helm of “Those Who Wish Me Dead,” which wrapped up filming in the state.

“In our story the setting itself is a character, and once we started scouting our locations — from the Santa Clara Pueblo to the Jemez Mountains and the wooded foothills of the Manzanos — we knew that New Mexico would provide the rugged scope that this story demands,” said Sheridan in a statement.

According to the New Mexico Film Office, the feature film is produced by Film Rites and BRON Studios.

Sheridan directed and wrote the screenplay, which is based on Michael Kortya’s best-selling novel, previously adapted by Charles Leavitt and Michael Koryta.

The film stars Oscar winner Angelina Jolie, as well as Nicholas Hoult, Jon Bernthal, Tyler Perry, Aiden Gillen, Medina Senghore, Finn Little and Jake Weber.

The production shot on location in and around Bernalillo, Torrance, Sandoval, and Rio Arriba counties, including Santa Clara Pueblo.

“I am especially pleased the producers of ‘Those Who Wish Me Dead’ were able to take advantage of New Mexico’s many remote and scenic locations, including Santa Clara Pueblo,” added New Mexico Film Office Director Todd Christensen. “We are hearing from more producers who want to see locations in New Mexico and learn more about our new film and television production rebates.”

According the film office, the production employed about 675 New Mexico residents in its cast and crew.

“More and more productions are finding that New Mexico is a state with a talented industry workforce, diverse locations and the best financial incentives in the country,” said Cabinet Secretary Alicia J. Keyes of the Economic Development Department. “We are honored that ‘Those Who Wish Me Dead’ had such a positive experience in the state and was able to provide jobs to more than 600 New Mexicans.”

Sheridan’s no stranger to New Mexico as his projects, “Sicario,” “Sicario: Day of the Soldado” and “Hell or High Water” were filmed in the state.
