A feature film is now casting extras in Cleveland, Ohio. Filming will begin in April and continue throughout the summer in Cleveland and Chicago. The casting call is for a new film based on a very popular book trilogy.
The trilogy starts with the book called, Darkest Minds. The books are written by Alexandra Bracken, and the movie sets out to tell a near identical tale. The author played a big role in writing the script for the movie.
The book is about a pandemic that kills most of the children and teenagers in the United States. When some survivors develop superpowers, they are deemed too dangerous for society. They are taken from their families and placed inside camps so that they cannot use their abilities. The books are very comparable to The Hunger Games series and they cater to the same type of audience.
Amandla Stenberg was recently cast as the star in Darkest Minds. She was an important supporting character in The Hunger Games movies. Stenberg will play 16-year-old Ruby Daly, a teenager with telekinetic powers who escapes and joins a group of kids, also on the run from the government.
Audition Dates: March 20th – March 23rd
Filming Dates: April 3rd – first week of June
