SCREENMANCER CASTING ALERT: This comes to us from Evolutionary Films. And, yes, it is in London — but you LA folks will go anywhere now that the Pound is down and everything is at Brexit prices right? They tell us VENGEANCE is an action-packed revenge thriller about an ex-special forces soldier turned contract killer, Gold, who returns to his home town when he discovers that his adoptive family have been murdered.
And the call goes out for 17-to-60 year olds, plus the proverbial Local Constable, of course a Coroner, it is a thriller after all. Also not-so-affable chums named Billy and Spider and such.
They start shooting next month in London, as mentioned, and will be holding castings on Thurs. June 30th, and Fri. July 1st, and Mon. July 4th. Evolutionary will also be hosting a read-through of the screenplay to workshop and get feedback, as well as a re-call process. The read-through will take place on Sat. July 9, at Three Mills Studio .
