National Champions feature film casting call for speaking roles.

Casting directors are now casting actors, models, and talent to work on scenes filming in New Orleans, Louisiana starting this May 2021.

Academy Award-winning actor J.K. Simmons and Stephan James are teaming up for the new movie National Champions. James from If Beale Street Could Talk will play a star quarterback who leads to a player strike days before the biggest game of the college football season to boost compensation for student-athletes, who generate so much money for their school.

Simmons’ role in the film has not been revealed, but an actor of his stature will probably play a major role in the movie.

National Champions is being adapted from a stage play by Adam Mervis, who’s also writing the script. Mervis wrote the script for 21 Bridges, in which James also starred alongside Simmons and Chadwick Boseman.

Ric Roman Waugh will direct the film who previously directed dramas including Angel Has Fallen and Greenland.
