SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Santa Fe Studios is asking Santa Fe County to help fund its expansion with a $22 million industrial revenue bond issue.

The film studio announced Thursday that it has asked the county for help building a post-production facility and another sound stage at its 60 acre campus along N.M. 14.

County officials say they have never before issued an industrial revenue bond, which does not preclude the option, but does mean they will need more information before they respond to the studios application. They also say Santa Fe Studios is behind on repaying funds borrowed to open in 2011, which studio officials deny.

The studio has been used for the 2013 comedy “We’re the Millers,” the 2014 Western-comedy “A Million Ways to Die in the West,” and, more recently, the remake of “The Magnificent Seven.”
