SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - A movie about a father who moves his six children deep into the forests of the Pacific Northwest is set to film in New Mexico.

Film Office Director Nick Maniatis announced Thursday that the feature “Captain Fantastic” will begin principal photography in Albuquerque, Las Cruces and Mesilla next month.

Starring Viggo Mortensen and Frank Langella, the New Mexico Film Office says the movie is about a passionate father who takes his children into the wild to homeschool them, teach them combat skills, train them like professional athletes and introduce them to the beauty of the natural world. But his unorthodox parenting is challenged when he is forced to leave and confront the real world.

Maniatis say the production will employ at least 75 New Mexico crew members, one New Mexico actor and about 220 local background talent.
