ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) – The latest feature film to use Albuquerque as a backdrop will star a few actors of “Breaking Bad” and “Better Call Saul” fame.
Steven Michael Quesada, Vincent McDaniel and Jermaine Washington are among the actors in “Furthest Witness,” which is shooting through the beginning of October in Albuquerque.
The production will employ nearly four dozen New Mexico crew members, 30 principal actors from the state and 30 background talent.
Produced by Elevated Pictures and directed by Adam Del Guidice, the movie follows a man who has spent the last decade moving witnesses over the border to Mexico and has always avoided confrontation or suspicion until now.
Albuquerque Mayor Richard Berry says the film industry has a strong economic impact on the city with its high-paying and creative jobs.
