SANTA FE —New Mexico Film Office director Nick Maniatis announced today the production of the NBC / Universal Television pilot, “The Sixth Gun,” starring Laura Ramsey (The Ruins), W. Earl Brown (Deadwood), Graham McTavish (The Hobbit) and Aldls Hodge (Leverage). Production will begin filming in mid-March to early April in Santa Fe, Galisteo, Las Cienega, Abiquiu and the surrounding areas.
The production will employ at least 100 New Mexico crewmembers, 20 New Mexico principal actors and over 400 New Mexico background talent.
Produced by Ron Schmidt (Sin City), co-produced by Santa Fe resident Tony Mark (The Hurt Locker), “The Sixth Gun” is executive-produced by Carlton Cuse (Lost) and Eric Gitter (Scott Pilgrim vs. The World), co-executive-produced by writer Ryan Condal and directed by Jeffrey Reiner (Friday Night Lights), who also serves as an executive producer.
“The Sixth Gun” is the story of six mythical guns in the Old West. When the Sixth Gun, the most powerful and dangerous of the group, resurfaces in the hands of an innocent girl named Becky Montcrief, dark forces reawaken. Vile men thought long dead set their sights on retrieving the gun and killing Becky. Only Drake Sinclair, a self-serving gunfighter, stands in evil’s way.
