New Mexico's state Investment Council has voted to put $4.7 million in the movie thriller "Blind Horizon," starring Val Kilmer, which is being produced near Las Vegas, N.M. With a back-end deal, natch.
"The intent of the film investment program is to invest in projects that hire New Mexicans and help us develop our professional crews," said Nancy Everist, director of the state Film Office.
The state will receive 5% of the revenue once "Blind Horizon," which also stars Neve Campbell and Sam Shepard, breaks even.
Last July, the council approved investing in "Suspect Zero," starring Aaron Eckhart, Carrie-Anne Moss and Ben Kingsley. Both movies are expected to be released later this year.
