*****WRESTLERS NEEDED FOR MOVIE FILMING IN PITTSBURGH*****
Bennett Miller, Oscar nominated Director of “Moneyball,” is in town casting a movie about Olympic Gold Medalist wrestlers, Dave and Mark Schultz.
To ensure an authentic depiction of the sport and community we want to cast as many REAL wrestlers, coaches, referees, trainers, scorekeepers, and committee members as possible.
Wrestling choreography and consulting will be provided by John Giura (2 time World Cup Champion, 3 time NCAA All-American), and Jesse Jantzen, (Collegiate National Champion and 4 time state champion).
This casting session will not just be for extras. There will be the opportunity to be upgraded to speaking roles. Casting opportunities for general extras, and wrestling fans are also being sought at this time.
Filming Dates: October 2012 – January 2013
Auditions: SEPTEMBER 15, 2012
Where: Canon McMillan High School, Canonsburg PA
Ages: 12 – 65 (Minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian)
