Gov. Bill Richardson says another film will begin shooting this fall in the state.

"Felon," a story of a family man convicted of killing an intruder, who must survive the violent penal system, will shoot in and around Santa Fe from October 9 through November 2. The production expects to hire about 60 New Mexico crew members and more than 300 local actors and background talent.

Tucker Tooley, Vincent Newman and Dan Keston will produce and Ric Roman Waugh will direct. The producers are in final negotiations with actors Stephen Dorff, Val Kilmer, Harold Perrineau, Sam Shepard, Marisol Nichols and Ann Archer.

More than 80 feature films and television projects have shot in the state, adding more than $1.2 billion to New Mexico's economy, since Richardson became governor, according to his office.
