Jessica Alba is leading the Netflix feature film “Trigger Warning.”

The New Mexico Film Office announced on Wednesday that the production is filming through October in Lamy, Española, Los Cerrillos, Madrid, Albuquerque and Santa Fe.

“We are thrilled that our film partner, Netflix, has chosen to bring ‘Trigger Warning’ to New Mexico which will feature so many beautiful and photogenic areas in and around Santa Fe,” said Amber Dodson, New Mexico Film Office director. “In addition, New Mexico and particularly the Santa Fe area, offers a place of respite with access to the outdoors for cast and crews when they aren’t working, which is why it is a favorite location for so many productions.”

“Trigger Warning” is the story of an active-duty Special Forces officer who takes ownership of her grandfather’s bar shortly after he dies and soon finds herself at odds with the violent gang that killed him. Rounding out the cast is Mark Webber, Anthony Michael Hall, Alejandro De Hoyos, Tone Bell, Jake Weary and Gabriel Basso.

The film is being directed by Mouly Surya and produced by Basil Iwanyk and Erica Lee for Thunder Road Pictures. Executive producers are Esther Hornstein for Thunder Road Pictures; Jeanette Volturno and Jason Clark for Catchlight Studios; and Alba.

According to the New Mexico Film Office, the production will employ approximately 180 New Mexico crew members and 240 New Mexico background and extras.

In 2018, Netflix purchased Albuquerque Studios and became a film partner with the state to bring productions to New Mexico.

“We’re excited to bring ‘Trigger Warning’ to New Mexico, which has provided an outstanding production environment for so many Netflix series and films,” said Jhamal Robinson, Netflix VP of Physical Production.
