Guess which movie actor Mathew McConaughey was spotted filming on the streets of Ruidoso, New Mexico?

That's right, Mr. McConaughey was seen roaming through the village of Ruidoso in full character mode as filming was underway for the movie "The Lost Bus".

According to the Village of Ruidoso government website, filming for "The Lost Bus" took place from April 1st through the 7th. The production included over 1,050 participants with recent extras casting events which were organized by the Film Industry Jobs Forum.

What is "The Lost Bus" About?

According to Variety, "The Lost Bus" stars McConaughey and America Ferrera and is based on Lizzie Johnson's book "Paradise: One Town's Struggle to Survive an American Wildfire" about the devastating 2018 California wildfires that resulted in over 100 deaths and destroyed the majority of the town of Paradise. The fires were the deadliest in the state’s history. The movie centers on Kevin McKay (McConaughey) and Mary Ludwig (Ferrera), a bus driver and teacher who lead a school bus full of young students through the Camp Fire.

No word though on whether Ferrera was also spotted, but many bystanders caught great glimpses of McConaughey in Ruidoso. According to Variety, this film is being developed, produced and distributed Apple. No word on when the film will be released.

Many of us are quite aware that New Mexico is a hot spot for the film industry- this news comes right after we all found out that Ari Aster and Joaquin Phoenix were spotted in the Albuquerque area for their new film that also includes Emma Stone, Pedro Pascal and Austin Butler!

So, once again, if you need me- I'll be in New Mexico!
