Élan Entertainment and Lobit Sisters Productions are getting ready to begin shooting the indie feature film "The Girl in the Lake", based on the novel June Bug by Chris Fabry. The producers have announced an open casting call in Bangor, Maine seeking adults and children to appear in the film as fully paid general extras and possible featured background actors. Shooting will take place in California, Colorado, and Maine.
"The Girl in the Lake" centers on 9-year-old Katie, who has spent her life traveling the country in an RV with her single father. Then one day, she sees her own portrait on a missing child poster and realizes that the man she thinks is her loving father may in fact be her kidnapper - and that her real name is actually Natalie. Meanwhile, small-town Sheriff Hadley, and the girl's grandfather, tries to figure out the truth when new evidence surfaces.
Two-time Primetime Emmy Award nominee Thomas Hildreth will produce and star in "The Girl in the Lake", playing the role of Katie's "father" John. Grammy Award nominee Ian McCrudden will produce and direct from an adapted screenplay that he wrote with Thomas Hildreth. McCrudden and Hildreth first worked together in 2000, when Hildreth was featured in "Mr. Smith Gets a Hustler", a play directed by McCrudden that was later made into a movie. This is the third collaboration between Mr. Hildreth and Ian McCrudden, and the second feature filmed in Maine where Hildreth has strong roots. His grandfather, Horace Hildreth, was Maine’s governor from 1945-1949 and signed on Maine's first TV station in 1953.

Katie believed everything her daddy told her. That is, until she saw her face on a missing child poster. The discovery begins a quest for the truth about her father, the mother he rarely speaks about, and ultimately herself. A modern interpretation of Les Miserables, the story follows a dilapidated RV rambling cross-country with Katie and her father, a man running from a haunted past.
