When driving over the next two weeks, make sure to check out road closures in Cimarron Canyon State Park. A motion picture will be shooting there over the next two weeks, and will need to use a few roads to complete the shots they need. Although the movie being filmed is not officially being released, many believe it to the movie "The Lone Ranger", which is believed to be shooting in these locations.
Some roads and recreation areas in Cimarron Canyon State Park will be closed over the next two weeks because of filming a motion picture, The Raton Range reported.
And while the New Mexico State Parks Division and state Film Office wouldn’t say which movie was being filmed because of confidentiality agreements between the filmmaker and state agencies, a spokeswoman for Angel Fire Resort, which is close to Cimarron Canyon State Park, told The Range on Monday that more than 200 people associated with “The Lone Ranger” had booked rooms at the resort through Aug. 31.
According to the New Mexico Film Office website, “The Lone Ranger” lists locations that could include Cimarron Canyon State Park and the Angel Fire area, The Range said.
Krysty Ronchetti, a media consultant and Angel Fire Resort spokeswoman, told the paper that no filming is scheduled on resort property.
Filmmakers are looking for some residents of western Colfax County to be extras in scenes to be shot beginning this week, according to The Range.
According to a State Parks Division news release, the agency and New Mexico’s Department of Game and Fish are working with the movie production company “to minimize impacts to visitors and to anglers” in Cimarron Canyon State Park.
