Project Casting

1186976_10151802837009653_382378592_nCasting directors are now seeking child talent to play the lead roles (younger version) in the upcoming feature film ‘The Sound and The Fury” directed by James Franco (Oz).

Morgan Casting recently posted a casting call on Facebook seeking local kids from the Mississippi for an upcoming (test shoot) for the feature film, filming in Jackson, Mississippi.

Casting calls will be held in Canton, Mississippi on Saturday August 17th.

According to Cinema Blend, the film will center on William Faulkner’s novel ‘The Sound and The Fury’. “Faulkner’s novel is a multi-narrative Southern Gothic tale about the Compson family told from four different perspectives, one of which is the mentally deficient Benny. The story and its subsequent appendix cover many years in the family’s life, detailing their financial and social ruin.”

There will be an open casting call until 3pm. Still interested?
