The casting directors for the feature film 'Little Red Wagon' are holding an open casting call in Charleston, SC for starring, co-staring, and supporting roles. The film has some interesting ties to The Twilight Saga films New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn.
The films' production company has a Talent Management division that represents hundreds of successful actors, writers, and directors, including several Academy Award and Emmy nominees and winners, as well as Pulitzer Prize winners. Director clients include The Twilight Saga: Eclipse director David Slade and Breaking Dawn front runner Bill Condon.
Executive producer is Barbara Kelly, who was the production manager on both 'The Twilight Saga: New Moon' and 'The Twilight Saga: Eclipse'. “We have a number of speaking roles for Little Red Wagon and are looking for talented actors. You don’t need an agent,” said Kelly. She said local actors close to Charleston are preferred and that extra roles are not being cast at this time.
The film tells the true story of Zach Bonner. When Zach was seven years old, he founded an organization to aid the 1.3 million homeless children in the United States.
Principal photography begins May 24, 2010 and runs through July 5, 2010.

"Little Red Wagon" will be based on the story of Zach Bonner, who as a 6-year-old in 2004 collected 27 pickup trucks full of supplies such as water and tarps in his wagon to help neighbors hit by Hurricane Charlie. He then established a foundation to help homeless kids and distributed 400 backpacks full of school supplies. Now 12, Bonner has raised more than $1 million and has begun a "March Across America" to raise awareness of the plight of homeless children.
