Trivision Pictures in association with Entertainment 7 and Empire Film Group are in pre-production on the comedy feature film "Army Bratz". The casting director in Los Angeles is auditioning talent for the movie's starring and co-starring roles. Additional casting for supporting roles will take place in Los Angeles, and in Louisiana where shooting is scheduled to begin in April, 2013. The stand-in and extras will all be cast in Louisiana closer to the start of filming.
"Army Bratz" centers on well-meaning airhead cousins Heather and Sydney, who unwittingly join the Army, thinking that they've signed on for a trip around the world. Horrified to learn that they're in the Army, both easily excel at basic training (thanks to all those workouts at the gym). Initially alienated by their fellow recruits, they can't help but feel sorry for some of the less skillful soldiers and work hard to make sure everyone looks good. In the meantime, they unwittingly manage to get a top terrorist to spill the beans, only be given a top-secret mission in Afghanistan where the two are expected to infiltrate the compound of the Sultan who will be hosting a group of top-level terrorists, including the much-sought-after Two of Clubs. Despite some near-misses, the girls' charming cluelessness ultimately proves a boon to the entire nation.
Starring in "Army Bratz" is the exquisitely beautiful and remarkably talented actress Jessica Barth in one of the lead roles of Heather. Barth began her professional acting career with a bit part in a B-movie called "Got Papers?". She worked steadily over the course of the next ten years with small roles on shows such as "Days of Our Lives," "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," "Cougar Town," "Parks and Recreation," and voice-over work on "Family Guy". Her breakout role came recently in Universal Pictures "Ted" playing the co-starring role of "Tami-Lynn".
Directing "Army Bratz" is Emilio Ferrari from a screenplay written by Matt Berman and Kevin Farley, brother of the late Chris Farley. Ferrari worked as Producer and Second Unit Director on the comedy film "Baby on Board" starring Jerry O'Connell, Heather Graham , and John Corbett. He was producer and director on the upcoming star studded film "Not Another Celebrity Movie". In addition to directing "Army Bratz", Emilio Ferrari will also produce under the banner of his company Entertainment 7. Dean Hamilton will oversee production for Empire Film Group, while Alexander Tabrizi is producing for Trivision Pictures.
