Looking for a role in Turlock's first feature film, written and directed by Corbin Bernsen of “L.A. Law” and “Psych” fame? Circle the dates Nov. 25 and 26 on the calendar.
An open casting call for the family-friendly romantic comedy will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. Nov. 25 and 26 at Pet Extreme, 2840 Countryside Dr., Turlock. All those age 18 or older, of any ethnicity, are welcome to try out for a role in Turlock's first feature film.
The film follows the journey of 30-year-old Gwyneth who is tired of dating jerks, and turns to a Christian dating website to find a nice guy. She meets Mr. Right – the son of a pastor – but there's only one problem: Gwyneth isn't exactly telling the truth about her Christianity.
“She's not not Christian, but she's not what he's looking for,” Bernsen explained.
Bernsen has previously stated that between 200 and 300 extras will be needed for a variety of scenes. Additionally, Bernsen is looking to fill eight or ten roles that have a line or two of dialogue.
The production is also seeking volunteers to get involved behind the scenes, especially if they have any film industry experience. Interested persons can e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to apply.
The movie will be filmed from Dec. 5 to 18, mainly in Downtown Turlock and at California State University, Stanislaus.
The film will be produced and distributed by Bernsen's production company Home Theater Films, which focuses on smart family films for home distribution. Turlocker Matt Swanson, who owns Pet Extreme, has signed on as an executive producer for the project.
