Filming for a live-action flick following Looney Tunes character Wile E. Coyote is well underway, right here in the Albuquerque area.
New Mexico State Film Officer Director Amber Dodson announced in a June 2 press release via the state Economic Development Department that principal photography began in March for the movie, which’ll be a mix of live-action and animation.
“There’s no better place for this film to be made than Albuquerque — it will showcase our beautiful city as an already iconic location and setting in the Looney (Tunes) cartoons,” Dodson said in the release.
The plot for this film involves Wile E. Coyote suing the ACME corporation because their products repeatedly failed him.
The production team includes 180 New Mexico crew members, 49 New Mexico principal actors and roughly 2,120 New Mexicans serving as background talent.
