(MEMPHIS, TN 11/16/2007) If you’ve ever dreamed of seeing yourself on the big screen, Saturday afternoon you’ll have a shot. A casting call for Oliver Stone’s new film is taking place right here in Memphis.
A casting agency is looking for extras for “Pinkville” at the FedEx Forum. The movie centers on the investigation into the My Lai Massacre of 1968 in Vietnam. U.S. troops killed hundreds of My Lai villagers mostly women, elderly and children.
Some big name stars like Bruce Willis have already been cast in the film.
Casting directors are looking for Caucasian, African-American and Latino males between the ages of 20-50 to play soldiers.
It’ll be held at the forum from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. You need to bring a recent headshot and a passport that doesn’t expire for at the least the next 6 months.
If you’re chosen for the film, they’re going to be shooting on location in Thailand for six weeks starting December 26. Production will cover travel, room and board and per diem, and pay.
