There is a new movie filming in Cleveland and auditions are now being held. The Untitled Detroit movie project will follow the life of “White Boy Rick”. The film is starring Matthew McConaughey. There are several background and featured roles in the new movie casting call. Based on a true story, the film is about Ricky Jr., who grew up as one of the only white kids on the mean streets of east side Detroit. At 14 years old, Rick Wershe was hired by the police as an informant. He eventually started selling drugs and in a year’s time was caught and sentenced to a prison term of life without parole. These roles will be filming in Cleveland, Ohio so local men and women are being considered.

Its important to know this is a process. We will be going through several steps to hire people as extras. First, we approve the photos, then the AD approves, then we will schedule a video audition for 80% of our extras, most potential extras will be asked to meet with the director, then hired. So if you don’t hear back right away, you are probably going through the process, please keep yourself available if your submitting.This particular director is placing a strong emphasis on the background, he is hand selecting these actors. If you are part of this industry because of the creativity involved, this is one set you will want to be on. So when submitting please plan to be flexible and ready to be on set at any time because the director will decide who he wants in the film first, then where he wants them. This film is incredibly creative and unique, I cannot stress enough how much emphasis the director is putting on every single background artist chosen to be in this film. The possibility of upgrades and features is very VERY possible.
Some additional instructions-
When you submit pictures. Please avoid headshots. The director wants real people. Make sure they are current photos.
