Locals Needed for Hollywood Survival Thriller Filming In Western Montana
A Hollywood survival thriller will begin production in late October in northwest Montana and they are looking for some local talent to fill the scene.
"It’s a thriller about a mountain man who survives the winter by living off of the Montana land," said Montana Film Office Commissioner Deny Staggs. "It’s an indie feature, with a good sized budget. It’s a legitimate film with an A-list cast in it and we’re really excited that it’s going up in Kalispell. They are looking for authentic Montana types, this is a Montana story.”
There is a casting call and Staggs says the production company will be paying for locals to be extras. The request specifically asks for "Montana types" including churchgoers and members of a search party with “trustworthy faces.” Those picked will get to act with some famous performers.
The film has the tentative title of "Buster's Mal Heart" and is being produced by Snowfort Pictures.
Below is an excerpt of the roles needed from the casting call:
Churchgoers (Wed. Nov 4th, 10am – 4pm)
