Arkansas film casting

WAR EAGLE Open Call Little Rock

Open Casting Call in Little Rock, AR for Upcoming Feature Film WAR EAGLE to be shot in Northwest Arkansas.

Golden Globe and Emmy Award winner Brian Dennehy to star in coming-of-age story set and filmed in small town Arkansas.

What: An open casting call will be held in Little Rock, AR on Saturday, June 17 to cast several featured roles in the upcoming Independent Feature Film WAR EAGLE, starring Golden Globe and Emmy Award winning actor Brian Dennehy. The story of two friends forced to examine their life-long friendship after high school graduation points them in very different directions. Inspired by a true story, this film is a celebration of loyalty, family and small town life.

Who: Casting directors will be looking for several actors of all ages and ethnicities to populate the community of War Eagle: a 'hot mom'; a diner waitress; a University of Memphis baseball scout and a coach; an African-American preacher; a Blanchard Springs tour guide and a ticket seller; an obsessive-compulsive wood-chopping 13-year-old, and a high school bully. There are also speaking roles for high school baseball players, coaches, and umpires. Casting directors are very interested in finding people who actually play, coach, or umpire baseball. Those who do so, at any level, are strongly encouraged to audition.

When: Saturday, June 17, 10:00 am-4:00 pm. Auditionees can arrive any time during that timeframe.

Where: North Little Rock Chamber of Commerce 100 Main Street (corner of Washington & Main Street) North Little Rock, AR 72114.

More Info: Anyone interested in auditioning for WAR EAGLE should bring a current photo. Shooting for the movie will take place in Northwest Arkansas for five weeks, beginning on or about July 27.
