SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - The New Mexico Film Office says another project is coming to the state, bringing to 10 the number of movies and television shows currently being produced in New Mexico.

Film Office Director Nick Maniatis says the feature "Kepler's Dream" will film in Albuquerque and Santa Fe County at the end of July through the end of August.

The movie is a story of spirited girl trying to heal her broken family. It's based on the award-winning novel by Juliet Bell. The book was inspired by her grandmother, who was resident of Albuquerque for more than fifty years.

The movie stars Isabella Blake-Thomas, Holland Taylor, Sean Patrick Flanery, Kelly Lynch, David Hunt, Steven Michael Quezada and Kelly Hu.

Maniatis says the production will employ at least 60 New Mexico crew members, nine New Mexico actors and approximately 50 local background talent.
