BARBERTON -- As downtown Cleveland experiences the Hollywood allure of Marvel's "Captain America: Winter Soldier" for the next few weeks, another film is starting its casting process.
Producers for "ZombieMom" -- an independent movie directed by Crissy Kolarik -- is seeking actors to fill a slew of roles.
The Greater Cleveland Film Commission says two open casting calls will be held:
- Saturday, June 15 from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. at the Fast Lane bowling and event center at 193 Wooster Road North in Barberton.
- Sunday, June 16 from 1 - 5 p.m. at the Brecksville branch of the Cuyahoga County Library located at 9089 Brecksville Road.
If you can't make it to one of the in-person auditions, you can e-mail your headshot, resume and any links to previous work to Crissy@thezombiemomproject.com.
There will be deferred pay.
Rehearsals will be in July and principle photography will be in August and September in the Cleveland Akron area with possible shoots out of town for select characters.
