CLEVELAND - The film "Tootaloo" opened up a second round of casting this weekend, looking for real people. 

The movie, produced by Rob Carliner (Crazy Heart) and directed by Ohio native Karen Hopkins, has a budget of just under $2 million.

The plot centers around a substitute school teacher that rids the world of bad people.

"You can almost look at it as Pulp Fiction meets Mary Poppins," said Carliner.

The film will begin shooting in August all over downtown, Tremont, and Edgewater, with shooting expected to last about 20 days.

The lead is rumored to be a big name. Carliner said, "It's somebody you'll recognize."

They were looking for real people, preferably without theatre training, to fill speaking as well as extra roles.
