Feature films 'Rust,' 'Outlaw Land' shoot in Santa Fe, Albuquerque

·2 min read

Oct. 8—Two feature films will be filming in Santa Fe during October.

Outlaw Land began filming in Santa Fe and Albuquerque in September and will continue in October, and Rust will be in town into early November, the New Mexico Film Office said.

"Outlaw Land has not landed in Santa Fe yet," Santa Fe Film Office director Jennifer LaBar-Tapia said. "Rust has been here a few weeks. They are at one of our five western ranches."

Alec Baldwin stars in and is one of the producers of Rust, the story of a 13-year-old boy left to fend for himself and his younger brother following the death of their parents in 1880s Kansas, with New Mexico doubling for Kansas.

"We can do all genres of film here in New Mexico, but historically, and presently, a standout genre for our state is westerns," New Mexico Film Office director Amber Dodson said in a news release.

Rust is produced by Rust Movie Productions LLC and directed by Joel Souza, who also directed Crown Vic, Break Night, Christmas Trade and Ghost Squad.

Rust will employ about 75 crew members, 22 principal actors and 230 in background talent, all from New Mexico. Outlaw Land will employ about 20 New Mexico crew members, 15 state principal cast members and 150 in the background and as extras, the New Mexico Film Office reported.

Outlaw Land is directed by Anthony C. Ferrante (Sharknado) and produced by Keystone Films LLC and Daniel Lusko (Persecuted).

Outlaw Land is another retelling of the Butch Cassidy saga, this time fleeing from authorities after robbing a train.

"We're excited to make an iconic western with local New Mexicans at the helm," Lusko said in a news release.

The short film Rude Girl will be produced in Albuquerque in October. The production will employ about 40 New Mexico crew members, five principal actors, and five in the background and as extras.
