Lakeshore Entertainment and Summit Entertainment are in production on the upcoming feature film "Gone", and there will be an open casting call for people interested in working as background performers, stand ins, and photo doubles on the movie. A stand in/photo double for Amanda Seyfried will be hired to work for the entire duration of filming.
The film stars Amanda Seyfried, Emily Wickersham (I Am Number Four), Wes Bentley (Jonah Hex), and Jennifer Carpenter (The Exorcism of Emily Rose). Seyfried's career is in high gear, as she has two high profile films being released in 2011 - Catherine Hardwicke‘s fairy tale "Red Riding Hood" and Andrew Niccol‘s sci-fi thriller "Now".
Brazilian filmmaker Heitor Dhalia will make his English-language directorial debut with "Gone". Dhalia will direct from a screenplay written by Allison Burnett. Although Allison is a talented writer of films, novels, short fiction and essays, he has also worked as a producer and director in the past.
Lakeshore Entertainment's Gary Lucchesi and Tom Rosenberg will produce along with Sidney Kimmel of Sidney Kimmel Entertainment, Chris Salvaterra, and Dan Abrams. Summit Entertainment has acquired domestic distribution rights to the project.
Principal Photography on "Gone" begins in Portland, Oregon on April 27, 2011 and will continue through June 30, 2011.
