It may be cold outside, but the New Mexico film industry will be heating up soon.

The Warner Bros. production, “Cry Macho,” will set up shop in New Mexico to film.

Attached to it is Oscar winner Clint Eastwood, who will direct and star. No other cast member has been announced.

Production is expected to take place November through December.

The film is based on the book of the same name by Richard Nash.

The 90-year-old actor will play a one-time rodeo star and washed-up horse breeder who takes a job from a former boss to bring the man’s young son home – all taking place in 1978.

It follows their journey of crossing rural Mexico on their way back to Texas as the unlikely pair faces an unexpectedly challenging journey, during which the world-weary horseman may find his own sense of redemption.

Eastwood was last in New Mexico in 2018 with the production of “The Mule,” which filmed scenes in Las Cruces. According to the Motion Picture Association of America, the production filmed for six days in the Las Cruces area, spending nearly $1.3 million locally.

Extras casting is currently underway for the project.

According to the casting agency, the film will be in production from Nov. 4 through Dec. 16 in the Albuquerque area.

It’s looking for the following:

• Background actors of all ages, sizes and ethnicities – full diversity. Rate of pay: $120 for eight hours.

• Stand-ins: Rate of pay: $160 for eight hours.

• Older vehicles (cars and trucks) 1960s to 1978. Must be drivable. Rate of pay: $120 for eight hour for driver plus $250 for vehicle.

The story takes place in 1978 – hair and facial hair may need to be adjusted for the time period.

Email two current photos (close up and full body length); include your name, age, cell number, city/state of residence, height/weight, jacket size, neck/sleeve, casual clothing sizes, shoe size and description of any visible tattoos and/or piercings.

For vehicles, also email two photos along with a brief description to cmextrascasting@gmail.com.
