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. Lynn Shelton's films have won multiple film festival awards. Academy Award nominee Steve Golin of Anonymous Content will produce alongside Alix Madigan and Rosalie Swedlin.
