Feature film LaRoy to shoot in Albuquerque, New Mexico

The production will employ around 30 New Mexico crew members, 24 local principal actors, and around 70 local background talent

Dark comedy thriller LaRoy will begin principal photography in and around Albuquerque, New Mexico later this month.

LaRoy is the story of a man named Ray who discovers his wife is cheating on him and decides to kill himself. Before he can pull the trigger, he is mistaken for a low-rent hired killer. Desperate for a little respect, and with nothing else to live for, Ray decides to take the job - and soon begins to question whether he made the right choice.

The feature is directed by Shane Atkinson and produced by Caddy Vanasirikul (The Stand-In), Sébastien Aubert (The Strange Ones) and Jérémie Guiraud. It stars John Magaro (The Umbrella Academy) and Steve Zahn (Dallas Buyers Club).

Adastra Films produce for Front Row Filmed Entertainment. 

“We are thrilled to have John Magaro and Steve Zahn play these characters that will highlight the full range and versatility of their talent”, Aubert said. “Shane’s original and singular vision, combined with our amazing cast and beautiful New Mexico scenery, will make this film a fun and wild ride for the audience.”

New Mexico Film Office confirms the production will employ approximately 30 local crew members, 24 local principal actors, and around 70 native background talent.
