I just received an e-mail from a good friend about an open casting call for the film The Surrogates, starring Bruce Willis and Rhada Mitchell. The film is a science-fiction story about a futuristic world where humans interact with each other via surrogate robots while every human sits at home in isolation. The film appears to be based of the graphic novels, The Surrogates by Robert Venditti and Brett Weldele. The story sounds very cool and the graphic novels are rated as 5/5 on Amazon.com. Check out the cool artwork on the cover:
Below are the official details for the open casting call. Personally, I’m not gonna shower until then and try out for a dread role! (kidding…about the not showering part…being a “dread” sounds wicked cool)
C.P. Casting & Meagan Lewis Casting are holding a casting call for “Surrogates”, a feature film starring Bruce Willis and Rhada Mitchell.
Saturday, March 29, 2008
10:00 AM until 4:00 PM
Felt Nightclub – Boston
533 Washington Street, Boston, MA, 02111
Extras and speaking roles are needed for a science fiction
feature film that will shoot in Boston for several weeks starting April 28.
We are looking for men and women [AGE 18+] of all races and types.
We are particularly looking to cast SURROGATES, remotely operated
synthetic humans who are distinguishable from flesh-and-blood humans
primarily by their physical perfection. In this future world, any consumer
who can afford it can have an attractive looking SURROGATE replace them
in the real world.
All Actors who wish to be considered for SURROGATE Roles should look
their BEST. That means Men, clean shaven and Women having done their
make up and hair to the very best of their ability, and dressed to impress!
Not a SURROGATE? That’s ok, we also need all types to play “real
humans” and DREADS, a particularly downtrodden group of anti-
surrogate rebels who wish to destroy the surrogacy way of life…
If you can, please bring a recent photo with you. (It will not be returned!)
NO PHONE CALLS, PLEASE!
JUST SHOW UP!
Sounds cool. Good luck to everyone who tries out!
