Casting Call for independent feature film “Driver of the Dead” – Phoenix, AZ

Casting Notice for the independent feature film “Driver of the Dead”.
Non-Union Film produced by Canyon Press Entertainment.

Reply via submission form only.
No phone calls.

Driver of the Dead is filming in Phoenix and southern Arizona. It is the story of a funeral escort driver, who, although he hates illegal immigrants, becomes involved with a young Mexican-American girl who is herself, illegal. This friendship will change the course of his life.

We are offering deferred pay.

Maricela Garcia, 18, (featured role – many scenes) is a very beautiful girl. She is bi-lingual and the daughter of hard-working, Mexican parents who came to the United States when she was ten years old to find work. Just out high school, she took a job (at her mother’s urging) as a maid for a rich woman in Scottsdale. She is doing her best to make it in America. Being here illegally doesn’t help matters.

Raul Martinez, 30-60, (3 scenes) is a high-profile activist for undocumented immigrants. He routinely makes the circuit on cable talk shows espousing his radical take on the immigration debate. He favors reconquista. He is an intelligent and polarizing figure.

Ben Bridges, 50-60, (6 scenes – many monologues) is the star of the Ben Bridges Show on The Network (a cable channel that is big on news). It is one of those political opinion/news shows. Ben is a Bill O’Rielly clone, with all of the bravado and antagonistic interview style that makes Bill, Bill.

Jill Nelson, 20-40, (5-6 stand-up news scenes) is a news reporter for The Network. She does mostly “on location” broadcasts.

Betty Martens, 55-65, (1 big scene) is a very rich woman. Mr. Martens has recently died and she is lonely. Alcohol is a constant friend that she leans on daily. If she had it to do all over again, she wouldn’t have gotten so much Scottsdale sun, because the wrinkles have set in pretty deep. Most of the time she is demanding and (inside) quite unhappy.

Anastasia, 18, (2 scenes) is Maricela Garcia’s best-friend. Also very pretty and without legal status in America. English is her second language.

Oscar Guerrero, 18-20 (5 scenes), is Maricela’s on-again, off-again, boyfriend. He is a gang banger with ties to the Mexican Narco-Traffickers. He is bi-lingual.

Jesus Corriendez, 30-40, (2 scenes), is a Mexican Narco-Trafficker. He is a very tough customer. Most people would avoid this man at all costs. He has that vibe and dead eyes.

Tony Ramirez, 20-40, (2 scenes), is a Mexican Narco-Trafficker.

Extras:

We are also looking for Assorted Mexican Cartel bad guys.
We are looking for Mexican-American people of all ages and races to work as extras in some scenes.
