Piranha 3-D Casting Call in Arizona

“Piranha 3-D,” is in pre-production with filming for the $40 million horror flick scheduled to begin May 11. Elisabeth Shue has been cast as the female lead, a single mom/sheriff in a lakefront community terrorized by prehistoric piranhas. Adam Scott is slated to play the lead male role, as a U.S. Geological Service diver who tries to help Shue's character avert disaster in a resort community that, by no small coincidence, resembles Lake Havasu City. Ving Rhames has also recently signed on and Richard Dreyfuss is to make a cameo appearance.

According to pre-production notes, the movie is based loosely on the 1978 horror/comedy movie “Piranha,” directed by Joe Dante. This incarnation, under the directorship of Alexandre Aja, is more of a sci-fi/horror movie and less of a spoof of other horror films than the previous version.

Good Faith Casting is casting a thousand or so extras to play roles ranging from very minor to nearly major. While extras from California and Nevada are welcome, there's an emphasis to hire Arizona actors to fill the roles. The production company is eligible for tax credits if at least 70 percent of the actors are Arizona residents. Much of the search for extras is geared toward finding young adults - 18 to 25 years old - or people who look like they're 18 to 25 years old, but they are looking for all kinds of people.

$100 for a 12-hour day is a ball-park figure for extras, but the opportunity to be in a “major movie” is a bonus. And, there will be incentives and a possibility that the right individuals might develop into more important characters in the film that is scheduled to finish shooting in July. The release is tentatively scheduled for March of 2010.

Have fun in the Arizona sun, the beautiful waters of Lake Havasu . . . and this is PAID work! Along with pay, they are raffling off gift cards to an electronic store ranging in value from $50 to $1000! As well as catering food three times a day and discounted lodging if you are from out of town! Bring your friends and make a vacation out of it . . . a vacation where you get paid, stay on the lake with other college kids, fed, chance at gifts and be a part of high budget major motion picture!

Good Faith Casting is based out of Phoenix and operated by casting director Faith Hibbs-Clark, who has provided local casting for a number of Arizona projects in recent years.

Interested people should submit two photos - one full-body shot and one closeup - along with contact information such as name, address, phone number and e-mail contact information. Height and weight also should be included.

People can contact Good Faith Casting by e-mail:
