Wednesday, May 30, 2007

SANTA FE—Governor Bill Richardson today announced that Hollywood Media Bridge will shoot the feature film, Conspiracy, in New Mexico.

Conspiracy tells the story of a Special Ops Marine (Kilmer), wounded in Iraq, who travels to Southern Arizona to start a new life on the ranch of his best friend. When he arrives, the friend has disappeared and no one in town will admit to knowing him. When the truth is revealed, our hero, who has put violence in his past, must decide whether or not to bring vengeance on the town.

The production will be shot in and around Santa Fe, Galisteo, Madrid and Pecos from May 29 through June 29 and expects to hire approximately 70 local New Mexico crew members.

The film will be produced by Alison Semenza and Adam Marcus will direct. Benjamin Sacks is line-producing

“I’m a big Val Kilmer fan,” said Richardson. “I’m especially happy that one of our own local luminaries is making a picture here. That’s what our film program is all about.”

“We have had nothing less than a first class experience since we have been here in Santa Fe,” said Semenza, “The local crew have all been fantastic.”

“All of us are thrilled to be in New Mexico,” said Sacks. “We are looking forward to our experience here.”

Since Richardson took office, over 65 feature films and television series have shot in the state, adding over $1.1 billion dollars to New Mexico’s economy.
