We will be filming three scenes from the screenplay.

Character Breakdowns:

[NATHAN FLINN] – [Late 20s/early 30s Male] Clean-cut, attractive African American with a sarcastic sense of humor. Charismatic yet withdrawn. Wouldn’t be accused of being a tough guy, but can hold his own if pushed hard enough. His Ex-Wife resurfaces with her new wealthy husband, the man she cheated on him with during his drinking problem. He’s reluctantly tasked to help them find their 6-yr-old daughter, thought to be abducted by a recent serial murderer. Submit African American Only.

[TONI GRESHAM] – [20s/early 30s Female] Gentle, sexy, compassionate woman. Thinks of others before herself. Educated and inquisitive. She’s subtlety emotive through her eyes. Having lost her mother as a child, her own emotions were shut down. As a consequence, she developed the keen ability to sense emotions in others. Can be Black, Hispanic/Latin, Asian.

[JACOB CROSS] – [40s Male] Self-satisfied former low-level “celebrity” that has been forced into obscurity due to a public disgrace. Smug and arrogant at times. Funny in an irreverent, edgy way. Uses humor to mask insecurities. He claims to have visions/flashes of the future. This gift makes him either half crazy or half depressed most of the time. Submit Caucasian Only.

[ASHLEY CARUTH] – [Late 20s/early 30s Female] Distraught beautiful young mother of kidnapped daughter. She tries to hold herself together while managing to keep her current husband and Ex-husband from killing one another. Submit Caucasian Only.

[KEVIN CARUTH] – [Late 20s/early 30s Male] Tall Pro Basketball Player, father of kidnapped daughter. Frustrated and upset with the lack of progress in finding her, he angrily shows his displeasure constantly. Doesn’t trust his wife’s Ex-husband but feels he’s their last hope. Submit African American only.

[LADY GLORIA] – [55-70 yrs] A sweet, southern grandmotherly type. A psychic medium that seems to be able to hear the voices of those that have passed on. She’s an important character and the main catalyst for the events in the film. Submit all ethnicities.
