Great news for people looking to star in a feature film, City Point Films and SB Films are hiring for their upcoming project ‘Adonis’. This feature film is being directed by Curtis James Salt while Andrew Sambuco will be producing the movie. Mike Ciulla is the casting director for Adonis.
Curtis was born in Massachusetts — United States on the 13th of November 1986. He is a great writer and an even better director. Curtis has won several awards for his outstanding directing abilities, which can be seen in some of his major projects like ‘The Reality Behind the Closed Doors’, ‘Trent’, and ‘Mosden’.
‘Adonis’ is actually a remake of a short movie ‘Adonis’ that Curtis James directed back in 2014. Having received an award for the movie, the director plans to remake it, only this time it will be in the form of a feature film, longer and detailed.
Adonis is a story of two twin brothers Pearce Hutchens and Garrett. Both the brothers are committed bodybuilders. It is inevitable that both of them will come to face to face with each other in one competition or the other and fight. Both Garrett and Pearce envy each other and are willing to go to any extreme in order to defeat their sibling.
Andrew Sambuco has given a complete freedom to the actors to improvise through the scenes in order to make them even better. Furthermore, he states that the involvement of actors in adding to the back story will also be crucial for the project. This allows the actors to be more comfortable on set as any positive contribution from them is welcomed.
The constructiveness of this freedom can clearly be seen in the feature film ‘Trent’ where both the SB Films and City Point Films worked together. The scripts were mostly used to grab a concept of the scene while most dialogues were then improvised. Andrew told that over sixty percent of Trent was completely improvised. Curtis James – the director of Adonis plans on taking the same approach this time around.
There are seven roles open for this feature film.
