Margot Robbie is returning to New Mexico.
This time, she’s starring in and producing “Dreamland,” a project under her LuckyChap Entertainment banner. She was last in New Mexico filming 2016’s “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.”
According to the New Mexico Film Office, production will begin mid-October and run through mid-November.
“We’re proud to see another production choose New Mexico,” said Film Office Director Nick Maniatis. “New Mexico’s deep talent pool, one-of-a-kind landscapes and powerful incentives make our state the perfect place to bring a production.”
“Dreamland,” set in the 1930s, follows Eugene Evans, whose family farm is on the precipice of foreclosure amid the devastation of the Dust Bowl.
Evans is on a quest to capture a fugitive bank robber, played by Robbie, and collect the bounty on her head.
Against all odds, he beats out the FBI and the local police to find her, only to discover that she’s far more than what the authorities claim her to be.
“The production will employ approximately 100 New Mexico crew members, approximately 18 New Mexico principal actors and approximately 225 New Mexico background talent,” the film office released.
According to Elizabeth Gabel, who is casting the film, the production is looking for men with 1930s hair to work as police officers. It is also looking for square dancers for a scene at Eaves Movie Ranch, just south of Santa Fe.
Production will take place in Albuquerque, Belen, Las Vegas and Santa Fe.
The project is also produced by Romulus Entertainment and Automatik Entertainment. It is directed by Miles Joris-Peyrafitte, and produced by Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, Rian Cahill, Robbie, Tom Ackerley, Josey McNamara and Brad Feinstein.
