Corporate Animals, a new independent movie starring Demi Moore, Jessica Williams, and Ed Helms filmed in Santa Fe, New New Mexico over the past month. The movie originally starred Sharon Stone, but she exited in May due to “scheduling conflicts” and was replaced by Moore. In the movie, Moore plays the ego-driven CEO of Incredible Edible Cutlery, a firm that sells edible cutlery. During a corporate retreat to New Mexico, for team building, the group gets trapped underground taking “team building” in a whole new direction.
The movie is a dark comedy that is directed by Patrick Brice (“Creep,” “Creep 2,” “The Overnight”), and produced by Keith Calder and Jessica Calder (“Blindspotting,” “Anomalisa,” “Blair Witch,” “The Guest”) for Snoot Entertainment, along with Mike Falbo and Ed Helms (“The Fake News with Ted Nelms,” “The Clapper”) for Pacific Electric. The screenplay was written by Sam Bain (“Four Lions,” “Peep Show”), one of the UK’s premier comedy writers.
In addition to Santa Fe, the movie also filmed in Abiquiu, New Mexico.
“I’m proud to welcome another great independent feature to New Mexico,” said New Mexico Film Office Director Nick Maniatis. “New Mexico’s deep base of talent, infrastructure and our strong incentives continue to help us attract independent films to New Mexico.”
Filming started in mid-June and employed about 100 New Mexico crew members, 2 New Mexico actors, and nearly 60 New Mexico background extras.
The synopsis for the movie is described as follows:
Lucy (Demi Moore) is the egotistical megalomaniac CEO of Incredible Edibles, America’s premier provider of edible cutlery. In her infinite wisdom, Lucy leads her staff including her long-suffering assistants, Freddie and Jess (Jessica Williams), on a corporate team-building caving weekend to New Mexico. When disaster strikes, not even their useless guide, Brandon (Ed Helms), can save them. Trapped underground by a cave-in, this mismatched and disgruntled group must pull together in order to survive. Amidst sexual tension, startling business revelations and casual cannibalism, Freddie and Jess emerge from Lucy’s shadow. Hilarious and sometimes shocking, the laughs and gasps mount as these Corporate Animals are unleashed.
