Movies Being Made in New Mexico! The Book of Eli, Starring Denzel Washington

We'd like to spread the word about one of the newest productions to be film in New Mexico - The Book of Eli, starring Gary Oldman, and two-time academy award winner Denzel Washington.

The Book of Eli will be directed by Albert and Allen Hughes. Its the first film for the Hughes Bros since their 2001 From Hell.

The synopsis? "A lone hero in a not-too-distant apocalyptic future who must fight across America to bring society the knowledge that could be the key to its redemption."

The script was originally written by Gary Whitta (the two new Akira films) and re-written by Anthony Peckham (Clint Eastwood's upcoming The Human Factor and Sherlock Holmes for Warner Bros).

This big-budget film is due to shoot in and around Alamogordo, Albuquerque, Carizozo, and Santa Fe, New Mexico, from Feb-May 2009.
