Las Cruces is hosting its 2nd action movie in a week, as a new motion picture will be filmed in Las Cruces from November 1 through 7.  The production will employ approximately 65 cast and crew, and employ additional background talent.

On Monday November 1 from 6 AM – 12 PM, the parking lot and playground area of Young Park, 850 S. Walnut, will be shut down, and the film will conduct a small simulation of a car explosion that will not involve a car fire or debris. A brief puff of fire will be visible before quickly burning off.

On November 1-6, filming will also take place in the parking lot and interior of the Electronic Caregivers building, 506 S. Main. 

Actors will be visible at both filming locations dressed in police uniforms and swat gear.

Citizens interested in working as paid non speaking background actors can submit their headshot, body shot, and contact information to

The film is working closely with Film Las Cruces and the City of Las Cruces.
