Dolph Lundgren’s new thriller Wanted Man is set to start principal photography this month in the US state of New Mexico, confirmed the New Mexico Film Office to KFTV.

Lundgren is directing and starring in the film, playing an aging detective, Travis Johansen, whose violent policing methods have given the department a serious public relations problem. To save his job, he is sent to Mexico to extradite a female witness, and once there, he finds not only are his old opinions challenged, but that people on both sides of the border are now gunning for him and his witness.

Filming of the project, produced by Millennium Media, will take place in and around Las Cruces, New Mexico employing approximately 60 New Mexico crew members, 40 New Mexico principal actors and approximately 200 New Mexico background talent.

“We're honoured to host Dolph Lundgren and Wanted Man in Las Cruces and Doña Ana County,” Jeff Steinborn, state senator and president of Film Las Cruces, said. “There's no better place to make a movie about the border than in our community, while enjoying our great restaurants, locations, and film incentives.

“It is exciting to see that Las Cruces and Doña Ana County are no longer the hidden gems of New Mexico,” Las Cruces film liaison Jon Sepp said. “Production has ramped up significantly within the last year and we are incredibly thankful to the producers of Wanted Man contributing to this new economic growth for our area.”

New Mexico is proving to be an extremely popular shooting location, hosting the likes of Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer, backed by Universal Pictures and starring Cillian Murphy and Matt Damon; Warner Bros.’ Coyote vs Acme, starring John Cena; and crime thriller Bad Hombres, starring Tyrese Gibson, which is also filming in Las Cruces.
