Santa Fe, N.M. – New Mexico Film Office Director Nick Maniatis announced today that the theatrical feature “The Kid” produced by Suretone will begin principal photography at the end of September through the end of October, in Santa Fe.

“It’s great to be filming ‘The Kid’ in New Mexico.  Here in the land of enchantment, with the echo of Billy the Kid’s past exchanges with Pat Garrett what better place to be filming our story,” said Producer Nick Thurlow.  “With Vince D’Onofrio directing, Ethan Hawke as Pat Garrett, Dane DeHaan as ‘Billy The Kid’ and introducing Jake Schur, we are beyond excited to bring this story to life.”

“The Kid” is the story of a young boy, Rio, who tragically loses his parents in a horrific episode.  He then must choose between Billy The Kid and Sherriff Pat Garrett in an effort to realize which of them will be noble enough to help rescue his sister Sara, who has been kidnapped by their evil uncle Grant.
