Reel-Scout just heard from the grapevine that the much-anticipated movie Thor by Marvel Studios will be filmed in three of our clients’ backyards: California, Los Angeles and New Mexico. Production Weekly also confirmed the locations in its tweet last Friday. Congratulations to FilmLACalifornia Film Commission, and New Mexico Film Office! As we mentioned last week, you are definitely among the Top 5 Filming Locations in North America.

Directed by Kenneth Branagh, the principal photography for Thor will start filming in Los Angeles in mid-January, and in Santa Fe in March 2010.

Thor is scheduled for release in May 20, 2010, with a powerhouse cast including Chris Hemsworth (as Thor), Natalie Portman (as Jane Foster), Anthony Hopkins (as Odin), Samuel L. Jackson, Tom Hiddleston (as Loki), Jaimie Alexander, Colm Feore, and Stellan Skarsgard.

Marvel Studios have been producing a series of successful films, one of which is our very own favorite Iron Man. Much to our excitement, Iron Man 2 will also start its production in April 2010. We will keep an eye out for news on its filming locations.
