Local residents have a chance to appear in a movie.
Extras are being sought for Go With Me, which will be shot in Enderby and Lumby and stars Sir Anthony Hopkins.
“We will be holding a casting session Tuesday in Enderby. The time will be 4 to 8p.m. at A.L. Fortune Secondary School,” said Kit Hayward, with casting.
Pictures, height and weight, contact information and age can also be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
Go With Me will start production Nov. 12. and besides Hopkins, it also stars Ray Liotta.
It is being produced by Rick Dugdale, an Enderby native who is now one of the principals in the production company Enderby Entertainment, a Los Angeles based independent film, television and digital media company.
“We are very pleased to have Rick, who has brought production to the area previously, return to the Okanagan to shoot this film and to bring such a prestigious director and talent to our region. We are finding that once a production company has worked here they like to come back as our locations, amenities and crews have so much to offer,” said Jon Summerland, with the Okanagan Film Commission.
“This film has a healthy budget and will provide our local crews with a lot of work. We have already talked to crew from Vernon, Kelowna and Summerland. Contrary, to what people have heard, they’re in fact thrilled with the fact that they have hired almost 50 per cent of their crew local. This really bodes well for the region and future projects.”
