Former California governor and Hollywood actor Arnold Schwarzenegger is in Belen during the month of November filing The Last Stand, a movie about a small bordertown sheriff who takes on drug kingpin who just escaped from FBI custody.

The Last Stand — a film that has brought Jaimie Alexander, Johnny Knoxville and Luis Guzman to Belen — is filming on Becker Avenue in downtown, where a set has been constructed.

The film has also brought a boost to local business, not only in cameo appearances by local businesses in the movie, but also in actual dollars that the film crew has spent on props and other local goods.
