Crime drama The Price We Pay wraps production in New Mexico

Anticipated feature film The Price We Pay has completed production in New Mexico, according to the New Mexico Film Office.

Produced by Price Productions LLC, the crime drama shot across July and August in Las Cruces, employing approximately 30 New Mexico crew members, 10 New Mexico principal actors, and 10 New Mexico background and extras.

Ryuhei Kitamura (The Midnight Meat Train and No One Lives) is directing the film, starring Mad Max's Vernon Wells, which follows a woman with nothing to lose who is taken hostage by a group of criminals that quickly realize they are in way over their heads.

Producing duties are split between Andre Relis (Wander, The Last Son) Robert Dean (Slayers, Dig) and Bill Kelman (Serving Santino).

Amber Dodson, director of New Mexico Film Office, said: “From unique locations and crew to production resources, film schools, and a film office, Las Cruces is quickly building up infrastructure to support production in Southern New Mexico."

New Mexico is proving a very popular filming spot, especially for westerns, hosting Alec Baldwin's Rust and Dead for a Dollar, starring Willem Dafoe and Christoph Waltz.
