SANTA FE, N.M.—The New Mexico Film Office says work on the movie "Things People Do" is under way in and around Albuquerque and Rio Rancho.

The work is expected to wrap up in early May.

The movie stars Wes Bentley, who appeared in "Hunger Games" and "American Beauty" and Vinessa Shaw, who starred in "3:10 to Yuma." It's being produced by Academy Award nominee Sarah Green, Hans Graffunder and Christos Konstatakopoulos.

Bentley's character loses his job and is unable to tell his wife for fear of losing his family. He then embarks on a life of crime.

The film office says the production is expected to employ at least 25 crewmembers and 100 principal actors and background talent.
