Thomas Comes to Town—
The governor's office recently announced start-up on the 34th
feature film to shoot in New Mexico since Richardson took office. Doubting Thomas
is described as a family comedy about a 12-year-old boy prone to telling tall tales who overhears a plot to kidnap the president's daughter. When no one will believe him, it's up to our titular hero to rescue her. The film is being written and directed by Mark Blutman, a writer and producer from the early-'90s sitcom “Boy Meets World.” The film is expected to begin shooting very soon. It will shoot for 30 days in and around Albuquerque and is expected to employ 50 New Mexicans. Cast has not yet been formally announced, although young actress Annasophia Robb (who starred as Violet Beauregarde in the recent Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
remake) apparently announced she was part of the cast.
