Appian Way and Pearl Street Films are now in pre-production on the Warner Bros. Pictures crime-drama feature film “Live By Night”, which is based on the novel by Dennis Lehane. Casting calls have gone out for the first roles to be cast. Ben Affleck will play the lead role in the film as well as produce and direct. Leonardo DiCaprio will also produce. Shooting will begin mid-September 2013 and will take place in Boston, where additional principal actor casting will take place. The stand-ins and extras will be hired throughout production.
The HBO biopic film “Behind the Candelabra“, starring Michael Douglas and Matt Damon, is set to begin principal photography in Southern California. There is an open casting call scheduled for people interested in working as paid background performers on the project. The movie tells a true story about the turbulent relationship between Scott Thorson, a handsome young man raised in foster homes, and the glittery Lee Liberace.
The Matt Damon starring vehicle “Promised Land” is holding an open casting call for extras in the Pittsburgh area. The casting director also needs volunteers to help out at the open casting call, which is expected to have a large turnout. Filming will take place in Apollo, Avonmore and other surrounding areas in Pennsylvania from late April to early June, 2012. Email submissions are also being accepted for people who can not attend the open casting call. This casting director loves casting people who are new to the business, so there is no concern about not having any acting experience.
