TRANSCENDENCE, starring Johnny Depp, shifts filming to New Mexico

After filming in the Los Angeles area on Saturday and Sunday, Wally Pfister’s Transcendence moved on to Albuquerque, New Mexico to continue production. A New Mexico Film Office news release has confirmed that Transcendence will be shooting through the end of July “in and around Albuquerque” and will employ more than 2,650 New Mexicans as crew members or actors. New Mexico Film Office spokesperson Angela Heisel confirmed to a local reporter that some filming will take place in Belen, New Mexico, which should be good news for local entrepreneurs. Business will be booming!

Meanwhile, the blogs and Twitter feeds of folks who got to work on Transcendence during its Los Angeles shoot have lit up with praise for Johnny Depp. Sagiv Karpel commented, “I got to work with Johnny Depp today, and… WOW. Not only is he a freakin’ brilliant actor, he is also ridiculously funny, sweet, charming, humble, and kind. Cheers to being very pleasantly surprised!” And Jennifer Beatty tweeted, “Working with Johnny Depp this week has been so inspiring. What a truly kind and humble man. Just another day in Paradise.”
