There’s a casting call for an independent film seeking your dramatic talents and pretty faces. Plus: the chance to be directed by your humble Y.P.R. coëditor, Josh Abraham.
Details via Back Stage magazine reproduced here, but please do check out preliminary information and eventual updates at In the Can’s Web site, which is still under construction.
SLM Production Group, L.L.C., is casting for a full-length feature film in the style of Swingers, Singles, 200 Cigarettes, and Clerks. Financing is still being put in place and principal photography will likely commence in November in NYC. It is a bawdy tale of 20-somethings and how they cheat, steal, and push each other through a day in N.Y.C., all to end up at the biggest party of the year. Seth Melnick, prod.; Josh Abraham, dir.
