ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A movie about efforts to take down a Mexican cartel boss will be filmed in New Mexico.

New Mexico Film Office Director Nick Maniatis announced Wednesday that the feature “Sicario” will be shot in Albuquerque, Los Lunas, Corrales, Laguna Pueblo, Bernalillo County and Sandoval County at the end of June through the end of August.

Starring Benicio Del Toro, Emily Blunt and Josh Brolin, “Sicario” (sih-KAH-REE-oh) is the story of a by-the-book female FBI agent who is assigned to work with two Delta-force operators to take down a Mexican cartel boss.

The film will be based at Albuquerque Studios and will employ about 200 New Mexico crew members as well as more than 2,000 resident actors and background talent.
