Shailene Woodley and Jack Whitehall are leading the film, “Robots,” which is filming in New Mexico.

The New Mexico Film Office announced that the project is in production in through August.

“‘Robots’ has a highly talented group of filmmakers behind it and we are happy to have them bring this story to life in New Mexico where they will utilize the unique locations and world-class crew that our state offers,” said Amber Dodson, New Mexico Film Office director.

“Robots” is the story of womanizer Charles, played by Whitehall, and gold digger Elaine, played by Woodley. The duo learn humanity when forced to team up and pursue robot doubles of themselves.

The film is directed by Anthony Hines and Casper Christensen. Cassian Elwes and Stephen Hamel are producers.

“‘Robots’ producers choose New Mexico for its terrain and easy accessibility of working with the New Mexico Film Office,” said Elwes and Hamel. “We plan to utilize locations in Albuquerque, Belen, Madrid, and Pecos. After the initial pre-scout, the writer and directors rewrote scenes to compliment the locations.”

The production will employ approximately 60 New Mexico crew members, 25 New Mexico principal cast members, and 100 New Mexico background and extras, according to the New Mexico Film Office.

The film is produced by Robots New Mexico LLC.
