Casting all ages and ethnicities for feature film “Strange Louis” – St. Louis, MO

Project: “Strange Louis”
Casting Calls Category: Feature Film
Location: St. Louis, MO
Open Casting Call Details:

Casting all ages and ethnicities for feature film shooting in and around St. Louis from late August – early October.

The movie centers on two old neighbors and the relationship they’ve formed throughout the years through their common bitterness.

The men spend their last few days together encountering different surreal strangers in their town.

Each strange St. Louisan they encounter has their own short film-within-the-film, with its own writer and director. The main story weaves seamlessly through these dream sequences to create a film that is greater than the sum of its stories.
