I have been hired to direct a remake of the early John Wayne Western BLUE STEEL. Pre-production has already started and filming takes place next month near Benson, Arizona. Please read ALL details below if you are interested in being involved.
First off, keep in mind this may be a remake of a John Wayne movie but I still have only been given a low budget to work with. I’ll be looking for as much help as I can to pull this ambitious project off. Send all submissions and questions via email to firstname.lastname@example.org AFTER you read all the details below. Here are some opportunities to get involved:
LEAD ROLE – JOHN CARRUTHERS

SUPPORTING ROLES AND BACKGROUND EXTRAS
-I’m casting several speaking parts, male and female. These would be required for 1-3 days of filming tops. It would be unpaid, for credit in the film and meals on set. People with acting experience and their own Western wardrobe will be given precedence. Your shoot dates will be between May 19th and June 2nd. I will be able to provide firm shoot dates in the next 1-2 weeks. When you email, include your availability during that time period and pictures of yourself.
-I will also have a few days to include background extras. You must have your own Western wardrobe for this. You’ll receive credit in the film and a meal on set if you work for more than six hours.
