Neill Blomkamp's Inferno to shoot in Albuquerque, New Mexico

Elysium director Neill Blomkamp’s new sci-fi movie, Inferno, starring Taylor Kitsch, is set to shoot in Albuquerque, New Mexico, from March next year.

Currently casting for other actors, the film is set in New Mexico, with Kitsch playing a cop who is called to investigate a seemingly ordinary murder in the US state’s desert. The arrival of the FBI confirms his suspicions that something bigger – perhaps extraterrestrial – is at play. The hunt for the killer puts him face-to-face with a humanoid beast who will stop at nothing to exterminate the one witness to the crime.

New Mexico is proving an extremely attractive shooting location, partly thanks to its rebates of up to 35%, playing host to Josh Greenbaum’s Barb and Star go to Vista Del Mar, starring Kristen Wiig, Marco Perego-Saldana’s Keyhole Garden, starring Zoe Saldana, Robert Lorenz’s The Minuteman, starring Liam Neeson, and Zack Snyder’s Army of the Dead.

Inferno is currently casting. Blomkamp’s 2013 sci-fi film Elysium remains his highest-grossing at the global box office with $286m followed by District 9 which made $211M.
