Marvel Studios to shoot 'Thor' in New Mexico

SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Portions of Marvel Studios' motion picture, "Thor," will be filmed in the Santa Fe area. Gov. Bill Richardson's office said Tuesday

The studio is expected to hire more than 200 New Mexico residents for the cast and crew.

"Thor" is directed by Kenneth Branagh and stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Rene Russo and Anthony Hopkins.

The film is slated for domestic release in May 2011.

The production is currently shooting in Los Angeles.

The governor's office says since Richardson took office in 2003, more than 135 film and television productions have been made in New Mexico.
