Scary Movie Filming In Duluth Hosting Two In-Person Casting Calls
Calling all actors in the Duluth area: a film going into production soon needs extras and you could be one of them!
The scary movie goes into production next month and LZ Productions MN is still seeking extras for the project. In fact, since the project was announced earlier this year, they have been encouraging Duluth and St. Louis County locals to audition for roles so they could hire local actors.
Now, with all supporting and lead roles filled, the production company will be hosting a casting call event for extra roles. Those that have already contacted the company about being an extra should still attend. Anyone interested will need to confirm their availability and will need to fill out paperwork prior to filming.
There will be two casting calls, each at The Caddy Shack, where the movie will begin filming next month. The Caddy Shack is located at 2023 West Superior Street in Lincoln Park.
The dates of the casting call events will be Sunday, April 25th and Wednesday, April 28th. The casting calls will begin at 2 p.m. each day and will continue until about 8 p.m. You are asked to bring a calendar or planner of some sort so you can know your availability for the month of May.
Who should apply? Anyone interested in movies or the movie business! The film needs extras to take part in a funeral scene and biker types with bikes. They are also looking to fill bar scenes with waiters and bar goers but you must be at least twenty-one in order to be an extra for those roles.
COVID-19 protocols will be in place should you become an extra, with details and protocols to come for those who commit to being an extra role. Also, these roles are unpaid. However, food will be provided.
It's not too late to show your interest in being an extra! If you want to be one, you should reach out to THTFcasting@gmail.com with the subject line "EXTRA" to be considered for part of the project. This will save you time at the event.
The film will be called The Hand That Feeds and everyone in the area was really excited about it when it was announced in March. It will focus on a man who inherits a bar and all of the ghosts that are said to haunt it. It will begin filming in Lincoln Park on May 1st and will be wrapped up by the end of the month.
