You're needed for a new Savannah-shot movie!
Marinella Hume Casting announced on Tuesday an open call for "The Glorias," a film detailing the life of Gloria Steinem and starring Julianne Moore, Bette Midler, Janelle Monae and Alicia Vikander. The open casting call will take place from 10 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. on Saturday at the International F&AM Masons at 912 Drayton Street.
According to the casting call, the extras roles will have a rate of pay at $10 an hour and they are looking for all types of people for the roles. Native American actors are encouraged to apply as they are seeking many prominent roles for people of that ethnicity, according to the casting agency.
According to IMDb, the film is “based on feminist icon Gloria Steinem’s best selling memoir, My Life on the Road, telling the story of her itinerant childhood’s influence on her life as a writer, activist and organizer for women’s rights worldwide.” Julie Taymor, Tony Award winning director of “The Lion King” on Broadway, is set to direct the film with Moore starring as the adult Steinem and Vikander as a slightly younger version of the activist. Monae's role in the movie is unknown at this time.
This is the third casting call to hit the area for the movie, which does not yet have a firm filming date.
