New Mexico Film Office Announces Feature Film “Eddington” Filming in New Mexico

Santa Fe, N.M. - New Mexico Film Office Director Amber Dodson announced today that the feature film, “Eddington,” is filming in and around Albuquerque, Santa Fe County, and Truth or Consequences.

The production will employ over 300 New Mexicans, including 230 crew members, 59 principal actors, and 105 background talent.

The film is set to star Joaquin Phoenix (“Joker: Folie à Deux,” “Napoleon”), Pedro Pascal (“The Last of Us”), Emma Stone (“Poor Things,” “The Curse”), Luke Grimes (“Yellowstone,” “American Sniper”), Austin Butler (“Elvis,” “Dune: Part Two”), Deirdre O'Connell, Micheal Ward (“Top Boy,” “Empire of Light”), Clifton Collins Jr. (“Capote, Jockey”), William Belleau (“Killers of the Flower Moon), Cameron Mann (“Mare of Easttown”), Matt Gomez Hidaka (“Silo”) and Amélie Hoeferle (“The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes”). The film follows a small-town New Mexico sheriff with higher aspirations.

Ari Aster will write, direct, and produce alongside Lars Knudsen under their Square Peg banner, and Academy Award nominee Darius Khondji will serve as the director of photography. New Mexico film partner 828 Productions is also producing the A24 feature.

“We are incredibly proud to bring 'Eddington' to life in New Mexico,” Todd Lundbohm of 828 Productions said. “The state's natural beauty and talented workforce provide the perfect backdrop for this compelling story.”

"A big-talent film in T or C is great for our local economies,” State Representative Tara Jaramillo said. “It supplies jobs for caterers, carpenters, and camera crews, a surge in business for motels and restaurants, and puts a spotlight on the unique beauty of our rural communities, attracting visitors who might never have considered them before. It's a win-win for everyone involved – the filmmakers get stunning scenery and a skilled local workforce, and our communities get an economic boost."

"New Mexico is established as a premier production hub where projects of all genres come to life,” Dodson said. “The combination of our breathtaking landscapes, expert crew, and competitive film incentive attracts top-tier films like ‘Eddington’ to New Mexico—not only to film in places like Truth or Consequences but also to tell a story set in the Land of Enchantment."

In fiscal year 2023, spending on productions outside the Albuquerque-Santa Fe Corridor reached $21 million. Since the Legislature modernized the Film Tax Credit to further incentivize film production in rural communities, spending outside this corridor has surpassed $36 million this fiscal year, with four months still to go.
