Mar 22, 2013

A new western starring Tommy Lee Jones, Hilary Swank, Meryl Streep and others is coming to New Mexico.

The film office announced Thursday that the movie, being directed by Jones, will shoot around Santa Fe and Las Vegas from the end of March through mid-May.

The Homesman is based on the novel by Glendon Swarthout. It follows the journey of a claim jumper, played by Tommy Lee Jones, and an independent pioneer woman, played by Hilary Swank, who team up to escort three women driven mad by the Nebraska frontier back to Iowa.
