Governor Bill Richardson Announces Italian production, Doc West, to be filmed in New Mexico

SANTA FE—Governor Bill Richardson today announced that the De Angelis Group/HDNM Entertainment production, Doc West, will shoot in New Mexico.

The production, a movie-of-the-week for Italian television, will be shot in and around Santa Fe from October 9th through December 6th and is expected to hire approximately 90 local crew members and over 200 actors, including principal and background talent.

Doc West will star Terence Hill (Lucky Luke, My Name is Nobody, They Call Me Trinity) and Paul Sorvino (Goodfellas, Dick Tracy). Giulio Base will direct, and Anselmo Parrinello and local Santa Fean Luca Ceccarelli will produce.

The movie tells the tale of Doc West who arrives in Holysand to hustle the locals at cards but finds himself caught between two warring families. Because of Doc’s exceptional and entertaining abilities – gunslinging, prowess of wit, and secret past as a doctor – the Sheriff, an orphan boy and a beautiful, strong-minded school teacher want to keep him around, but that’s going to be tough.

This marks the 108th major film production since Governor Richardson took office, adding close to $1.9 billion dollars in economic impact.
