Variety: Zia Pueblo a 'hot spot' for Hollywood
Tuesday, June 26, 2007
Zia Pueblo in New Mexico is one of the state's "top locations" for Hollywood movies, Variety reports. "Rather than opening a casino, the Zia tribe decided to allow film production on their lands," Variety says. "'The Missing' and 'All the Pretty Horses' took advantage of the territory's diverse landscape, which includes cliffs, valleys and a surreal gypsum quarry. The latter doubled as the Red Planet in 'John Carpenter's Ghosts of Mars.'" Other hot spots include the Albuquerque Rail Yards and White Sands National Monument. Movie production has ramped up during the administration of Gov. Bill Richardson (D). Get the Story:
