Casting Directors for the upcoming Detroit feature film, Attack of the Flies are looking for lead roles. The open casting call will take place on September 30th and October 1st in Royal Oak, Michigan. The crew is looking for enthusiastic and dedicated actors that can participate in the film set to shoot in June 2018.
You will be transported into the life of this midwestern farming couple. Their daily struggle with alcoholism, infertility, inner demons and a failing crop test their dedication toward each other and the farm. Attack of the Flies is an ambitious project created by Detroit filmmakers with a deep passion for the art of their craft. They are specifically looking for the following featured roles:
Elizabeth – A stunning woman in her 20’s. She is thin and fit, with average height and blonde hair. She has an elegance about her. She has great hygiene, especially for the 1920’s, but she isn’t afraid to get dirty on the farm. Her voice is soft and her skin is silky white. She cooks every meal for Henry and herself. She loves the idea of life and rebirth. Depressed that she is supposedly infertile, sex has become less and less desirable, she has taken up the habit of cutting herself on the upper back thigh to release her stress and ease pain. Elizabeth grew up an orphan in Bay City, Michigan.
Henry – A 30 something-year-old Caucasian man with medium height and average build. He looks older then he is by about five to ten years because of his excessive drinking and hard manual labor on the farm. His hair is dark and usually greased back. The pig farm he owns was passed down to him when he was only 22 years old by his father. Henry married Elizabeth a year after his father died and she has lived with him on the property ever since.
James – A 24-year-old Caucasian young man who works as many side jobs as he can to help support his new family including working on Henry’s farm. He is shorter than Henry but very handsome and strong. His brown hair is long and stops just before the back starts. He is very polite and has charm.
