Casting notice for indie feature film 'Car Dogs' adult, teen, and child actors and extras

Car Dogs Casting Calls Arizona

"Car Dogs" will film in Phoenix, AZ beginning on November 8, 2013.
AB Media Publishing, LLC

Production is now set to begin on the indie feature film "Car Dogs" beginning on November 8, 2013. The award winning casting director is auditioning actors for co-starring, supporting, and day-player roles. The extras casting department is also now taking submissions from people of all ages including children and seniors, to appear in the film as fully paid general extras and featured background actors. Shooting is taking place in the Phoenix, Arizona area and will run through December 4, 2013.

"Car Dogs" takes a rare look at the funny and intensely dramatic world that is the car business. The drama in "Car Dogs" centers on a powerful father-son battle between the owner of a car dealership, John Chamberlain, and his son, Mark. John is a brilliant, callous businessman who is a vicious, overbearing father. Mark is the sales manager at Chamberlain Auto, the dealership that promises to do "Whatever IT Takes" to put you in a new car. But on a scorching hot Saturday in the middle of the Phoenix summer, Mark has a chance to get his own dealership, and out from under his father's thumb. But there is a catch - Mark has to sell thirty-five cars by the end of the day. The question is, will Mark do whatever it takes, including betraying his sales team and himself to get what he wants?

Starring in "Car Dogs" is Screen Actors Guild Awards nominee Patrick J. Adams playing the role of Mark Chamberlain. Adams is a series regular on the hit USA show "Suits" playing Mike Ross. Also starring in "Car Dogs" is Academy Award winner Octavia Spencer playing the role of Sharon. Spencer recently completed shooting the feature film "Black and White" starring opposite Kevin Costner and Jennifer Ehle. Grammy Awards nominee George Lopez has joined the cast playing the role of Christian, Gotham Awards nominee Dash Mihok will play Scott, and Josh Hopkins has been cast as Mike Reynolds.

Filmmaker Adam Collis is directing "Car Dogs" from an original screenplay written by Mark Edward King, based partially on his experiences working at car dealerships in the Scottsdale, AZ area. Collis is Visiting Professor of Film Directing at Arizona State University and Founder, CEO at The Director's Perspective Acting Studio. He has received awards and nominations from the Aspen Shortsfest, Austin Film Festival, Hamptons International Film Festival, Los Angeles Independent Film Festival, New York Comedy Festival, and Palm Springs International Festival of Short Films.

"Dumb and Dumber To" picks up 20 years after the first film, and the guys are now middle aged knuckle-heads.

Two-time Daytime Emmy Award nominee Bradley Thomas is producing along with Charles B. Wessler. Red Granite Pictures Vice Chairman Joey McFarland and CEO Riza Aziz are executive producers.

Casting calls underway for live-action animated feature film 'SpongeBob SquarePants 2'

SpongeBob SquarePants 2

"SpongeBob SquarePants 2" is shooting in Savannah, GA.
AB Media Publishing, LLC

The little yellow fella that nearly everyone in America and beyond seems to love is back! Nickelodeon Movies and Paramount Animation are in pre-production on the live-action/animated feature film "SpongeBob SquarePants 2". The casting director has sent out casting calls for principal actor roles in Los Angeles, New York, as well as in Savannah, Georgia. Locations include sound stages in Savannah, locations in the downtown area, and on Tybee Island. Day player speaking roles and extras casting is now underway for talent in Savannah, GA.

The movie is a combination live action and animation film based on the Nickelodeon television series SpongeBob SquarePants. The film centers on SpongeBob - an optimistic, cheerful, enthusiastic yellow sea sponge who works as a fry cook in the fictional underwater town of Bikini Bottom. Other characters include Patrick, a pink dimwitted starfish; Sandy Cheeks - an intelligent, scientific, bipedal anthropomorphic squirrel; the ill-tempered, cynical, and grouchy Squidward Tentacles; and Mr. Krabs, the founder and greedy owner of the Krusty Krab restaurant.

Casting call for family adventure feature film 'Mickey Matson and The Pirate's Code'

Mickey Matson and The Pirate's Code Casting Call

"Mickey Matson and The Pirate's Code" is a sequel to "Mickey Matson and the Copperhead Conspiracy".
10 West Studios

10 West Studios is currently in production on the SAG-AFTRA family adventure comedy feature film "Mickey Matson and The Pirate's Code", which is a follow up to the 2012 feature film "Mickey Matson and the Copperhead Conspiracy". Casting directors in Los Angeles and Michigan are holding auditions for lead, supporting, and day player roles. The photo-doubles and stand-ins for the principal actors, as well as general extras and featured background actors will be hired throughout shooting. Principal photography is scheduled to begin in Grand Rapids, Michigan on September 5, 2013.

In "Mickey Matson and The Pirate's Code", buddies Mickey Matson and Sully are thrilled to be re-activated by the Secret Order of Patriots, where his Grandpa Jack and her Grams are already members in good standing. This time, their mission is to steal aboard the dastardly Admiral Joseph "Ironsides" Lee's pirate ship and destroy the Tesla machine that he plans to use to stop the world's electronic grid and bring technology to a stop, so that he can implement his own Pirate Code of Conduct. Mickey and Sully end up working together with Billy Lee, who they put in jail in the first film.

Returning in the title role of Mickey Matson is Derek Brandon, a Michigan native. Brandon started acting when he was 4 years old, and eventually was cast at Disneyland as the voice of Tom Sawyer on the Mark Twain Riverboat Ride. His feature film credits include "The Christmas Bunny," "A Dog for Christmas," and "Holiday Miracle". Matson is repped by Mitchell Gossett at CESD. Also starring in "Mickey Matson and The Pirate's Code" is Francesca DeRosa in the role of Sully Braginton. DeRosa started out in show biz in 2008, when she had a 16-episode stint on "Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?". Aside from the first Mickey Matson film, her lone feature film credit was "Christmas with a Capital C" starring alongside Ted McGinley and Daniel Baldwin. Other cast members starring in Mickey Madson 2 are Emmy Award nominees Christopher Lloyd of "Back to the Future" fame returning in the role of Grandpa Jack, and Patrika Darbo as Grams.

Talented filmmaker and Michigan native Harold Cronk is directing "Mickey Matson and The Pirate's Code" from an original screenplay written by himself and Erick Machiela. Cronk will also produce for 10 West Studios along with partner Matthew Tailford. 10 West Studios has a massive studio lot in Michigan consisting of seven sound stages. Cronk is a winner of the Best Director award at the Beverly Hills International Film Festival. Stephen Afendoulis will executive produce Mickey Matson 2. Screen Media Films will handle domestic distribution.

Casting calls for Sony Pictures film 'The Kitchen Sink' starring Vanessa Hudgens and featuring vampires, zombies, and aliens

The Kitchen Sink Casting Calls

"The Kitchen Sink" is scheduled to hit theaters October 17, 2014.
AB Media Publishing, LLC

Matt Tolmach Productions and Circle of Confusion are getting ready to begin production on the Sony Pictures comedy feature film "The Kitchen Sink" and casting directors are holding auditions for starring, co-starring, supporting, and day-player roles. The stand-ins and photo-doubles for the principal actors, as well as general extras and featured background actors are also now being cast. Shooting will take place in Los Angeles beginning on August 5, 2013 and will continue through September 15, 2013. "The Kitchen Sink" will hit theaters on October 17, 2014.

"The Kitchen Sink" is about the unlikely alliance between a high school-aged vampire, zombie and human as they try to save their town from invading aliens. Think "Breakfast Club" meets "Zombieland", you get an idea of the title in an early scene where two kids are running from zombies. Those zombies suddenly are attacked by vampires. Just when they are all facing off, there's a bright light overhead. You realize the aliens have landed and these groups have to band together, suppress the urge to kill each other, and it becomes thematically the enemy of my enemy is my friend. That makes it different than your usual zombie, vampire, or alien movie.

Starring in "The Kitchen Sink" is two-time Teen Choice Awards winner Vanessa Hudgens playing the role of a popular teen who finds herself in danger when aliens invade her small town of Danville. The former Disney Channel star recently starred opposite Nicolas Cage and John Cusack in the feature film "The Frozen Ground". She also starred with Amber Heard in "Machete Kills", and just completed voicing the role of Janis in the animated feature film "The Great Migration". Also starring in "The Kitchen Sink" is two-time Golden Globe Awards nominee Denis Leary playing a wealthy and smart resident of Danville. Young Artist Awards nominee Nicholas Braun, The Amazing Spider-Man's Chris Zylka, Mackenzie Davis, and Josh Fadem have also joined the cast.

Independent Spirit Awards nominee Robbie Pickering will direct "The Kitchen Sink" from an original screenplay written by Oren Uziel, who is also writing the screenplay for "22 Jump Street," "Mortal Kombat," and "Men in Black 4". Matthew Tolmach will produce with Kate Checchi under the banner of his production company Matt Tolmach Productions. Tolmach produced "The Amazing Spider-Man," and the upcoming "The Amazing Spider-Man 2". VP of Production Lauren Abraham will oversee production for Sony Pictures.

All talent, including minors and foreign talent must be legally eligible to work in the state of California and in the United States.

Talent search continues for boy to star in feature film 'Crazy For The Storm' directed by Sean Penn

Crazy For The Storm Child Actor Talent Search

"Crazy For The Storm" begins shooting in January, 2014.
AB Media Publishing, LLC

Gerber Pictures is now in pre-production on the Warner Bros. Pictures true-story action survival feature film "Crazy For The Storm" based on the bestselling novel "Crazy For The Storm: A Memoir Of Survival" by Norman Ollestad. A massive talent search has been taking place since February, 2013 for a boy who can play 11 year-old Norman Ollestad. The talent search included online video submissions accepted through Cast It Talent. However, the right boy was not discovered and new casting director information is now available.

"Crazy For The Storm" tells the story of Norman Ollestad, who at eleven years old was riding in a Cessna in a blizzard through California's San Gabriel Mountains in 1979, on his way to pick up a trophy he won in a skiing competition. The plane crash that followed killed his father and the pilot, also badly wounding his father's girlfriend Sandra, who with young Norman was savagely thrown onto the top of an 8,600-foot mountain in the freezing, February chill. After Sandra dies, Norman endures a grueling nine-hour life-or-death journey down the mountain during a blizzard. On the descent, Norman recounts in flashbacks how his father infused his love for extreme sports in him as a boy, pressing him to become a competitive surfer and skier, experience that allowed him to survive the ordeal.

Starring in "Crazy For The Storm" is Academy Award nominee Josh Brolin playing the role of young Norman's father Norman Ollestad Sr. Two-time Academy Award winner Sean Penn is directing from an adapted screenplay written by Will Fetters. This will be the third time that Sean Penn and Josh Brolin have worked together on a feature film. For the film "Milk," Penn won an Academy Award and Brolin was nominated for an Oscar. In the Warner Bros. Pictures feature film "Gangster Squad", Penn played the ruthless mob king Mickey Cohen while Brolin portrayed the determined Sgt. John O'Mara. Penn recently starred in Ben Stiller's "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty", while Brolin starred in the upcoming "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For".

Primetime Emmy Award nominee Bill Gerber will produce for Gerber Pictures. His producing credits include "The In-Laws" starring Michael Douglas and Ryan Reynolds, "Gran Torino" starring Clint Eastwood, and the upcoming "Grudge Match" starring Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro. Also producing is Norman Ollestad's literary manager Rob Weisbach, and Fonda Snyder. Ollestad will executive produce. Warner Bros. will handle domestic distribution.

The following is what the original casting call was seeking:

[NORMAN OLLESTAD] Male, 9-11 years of age, Caucasian. Must have surfing experience to play this lead role. The boy should be mentally tough and comfortable with sensitive and difficult scripted material.

All talent, including minors and foreign talent must be legally eligible to work in the state of California and in the United States.

Story:

From the age of three, Norman Ollestad was thrust into the world of surfing and competitive downhill skiing by the intense, charismatic father he both idolized and resented. While his friends were riding bikes, playing ball, and going to birthday parties, young Norman was whisked away in pursuit of wild and demanding adventures. Yet it were these exhilarating tests of skill that prepared "Boy Wonder," as his father called him, to become a fearless champion—and ultimately saved his life. Flying to a ski championship ceremony in February 1979, the chartered Cessna carrying Norman, his father, his father's girlfriend, and the pilot crashed into the San Gabriel Mountains and was suspended at 8,200 feet, engulfed in a blizzard. "Dad
and I were a team, and he was Superman," Ollestad writes. But now Norman's father was dead, and the devastated eleven-year-old had to descend the treacherous, icy mountain alone.

Mahjong and the West Wyoming Open Casting Calls

"Mahjong and the West" will film in Jackson Hole July through August, 2013.
AB Media Publishing, LLC

BCDF Pictures is now in pre-production on the upcoming feature film "Mahjong and the West", and an open casting call has been scheduled for both adult and child actors. The project will shoot in the Jackson Hole valley area of Wyoming from July through August, 2013. Local people who are interested in working on the film as background performers are also welcome to attend the open call. Both SAG-AFTRA members and non-union talent will be considered.

"Mahjong and the West" tells the story of a young woman named Maddy Linden who suffers the tragedy of her mother, Diane, being killed in a hit-and-run. After Maddy’s grandmother Shirley, a Wyoming native, reveals that Diane wanted to be buried in the family plot, Maddy returns to Wyoming for the first time since she was 12. Kate Bennett, Maddy’s childhood friend, reunites with her after fifteen years, and the two are forced to revisit a shared trauma from their past - an incident that Kate refuses to acknowledge ever happened. Maddy finds solace in the form of a summer fling with Kate’s cousin Jack, a rugged bull rider. Ultimately Kate and Maddy rely on each other to get their lives back on track.

The beautiful and talented duo of Alyssa Carpenter and Jannette Bloom are set to star in the film.

Major feature film 'Laggies' casting extras in Seattle

Anonymous Content is in pre-production on the upcoming major indie feature film "Laggies" starring Chloe Moretz, Sam Rockewell, and Keira Knightley. Filming will take place in Seattle, WA beginning June 3, 2013. Seattle native Lynn Shelton will direct from a screenplay by Andrea Seigel. Casting directors in Los Angeles and New York are auditioning talent for lead and supporting roles. The extras casting director in Seattle is hiring background actors, and will continue casting extras throughout production.

"Laggies" centers on a woman named Megan who has been living in perpetual adolescence, as she never switched over to the formality that adulthood imposes. Unsure of how to respond to her photographer boyfriend Anthony's marriage proposal, Megan pretends to go on a work retreat out of town, but ends up spending a week with her new 16-year-old pal Annika and all of her friends. Megan helps Annika to attempt a reconciliation with her mother Bethany, who chose a career as a lingerie model and left Annika and her father Craig. During the week, Megan and Annika bond and experience everything from stealing a beer keg from a party, to skateboarding, and toilet-papering a parent's house. When Megan unknowingly begins to have feelings for Annika's father, things get complicated.

Despite widespread reports that Anne Hathaway is starring in "Laggies", two-time Academy Award nominee Keira Knightley has been cast to play the starring role of Megan. Hathaway was in negotiations at one point, however Keira Knightley was cast after an agreement could not be reached with Ms. Hathaway. People's Choice Awards winner Chloë Grace Moretz is playing the role of 16-year-old pal Annika. Two-time Screen Actors Guild Awards nominee Sam Rockwell has joined the cast playing the role of Annika's lonely single father Craig. Rounding out the top four roles is Mark Webber playing Megan's boyfriend Anthony.

Directing "Laggies" is the highly respected and accomplished indie film director and writer Lynn Shelton. Among the films that Shelton has directed are "We Go Way Back" starring Amber Hubert and Maggie Brown, which is about a 23-year old actress, Kate, confronted by her 13-year old self; "Humpday" starring Joshua Leonard and Mark Duplass, about two college buddies who decide to have sex on-camera as part of an art project; "Your Sister's Sister" starring Mark Duplass and Emily Blunt, a comedy about doing the right thing with the wrong person; and "Touchy Feely" starring Rosemarie DeWitt, Ellen Page, and Allison Janney.
