Tremors and Dreamland to film in New Mexico
A pilot for a new TV version of the cult monster movie Tremors and crime feature Dreamland will film in New Mexico over the coming weeks.
Tremors will shoot in Albuquerque and is based on the 1990 comedy horror film about giant mutant worms terrorising an isolated but close-knit desert community in Nevada.
The movie is a cult favourite and has spawned a series of sequels, as well as a previous short-lived TV series in 2003.
“We are excited to be the host city for Universal Cable Productions’ TV pilot Tremors,” said Richard J Berry, mayor of Albuquerque.
“The film industry continues to be a strong economic driver for Albuquerque, providing high-paying creative jobs to our citizens, as well as positively affecting various industries around town, such as lumber companies and prop houses.”
Dreamland will star Australian actress Margot Robbie in a 1930s-set feature telling the story of a teenage boy who hunts down a woman fugitive in a bid to collect a bounty and save his family’s farm.
The film will shoot in the Santa Fe area through to mid-November.
Currently in production in Santa Fe is Vincent D’Onofrio’s Western film The Kid, based on the true story of the 1870s conflict between notorious outlaw Billy the Kid and Sheriff Pat Garrett.
