SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - An action-drama starring Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg will be shooting in New Mexico later this month.
The New Mexico Film Office says production of the film "2 Guns" will begin in late August and continue through early September in and around Albuquerque and Santa Fe.
Also starring in the film will be Bill Paxton and Edward James Olmos.
The movie, based on the Boom! Studios graphic novels by Steven Grant, is about a DEA agent and an undercover Naval Intelligence officer who are investigating each other when they find out they have both been set up by the mob.
The film office says the production will employ at least 100 New Mexico crewmembers, 10 New Mexico principal actors and more than 400 background talent.
