New York open casting call for 'Pottersville'

The feature film "Pottersville" will be shooting in Upstate New York later this month, and the casting team is holding an open casting call on Monday, January 4th. They are seeking kids and adults to work as paid actors and extras. The film stars Academy Award Nominee Michael Shannon, and is a warm and quirky, feel-good comedy. All talent must be legally eligible to work in the entertainment industry in the state of New York. Details below.

In "Pottersville," a beloved local businessman, Maynard, is mistaken for the legendary Bigfoot during an inebriated romp through town in a makeshift gorilla costume. The sightings set off an international Bigfoot media spectacle, and a windfall of tourism dollars for a simple American town hit by hard times. When Brock Masterson, reality TV's "Monster Hunter," arrives to hunt the "Squatch," Maynard agonizes over whether to come clean, destroying the rebirth of his beloved town, or perpetuate the inadvertent hoax. "Pottersville" tells the story of a small American town's struggle to escape the hardships and boredom resulting from the demise of the once thriving local industrial economy.

Hollywood Film Awards winner Seth Henrikson will direct "Pottersville" from an original screenplay written by Daniel Meyer. Golden Globe Award winner Ron Perlman will produce under the banner of his production company Wing and a Prayer Pictures. Also producing is Perlman's partner Josh Crook, along with Scott Lochmus and Jonathan Gray.
