The documentary-style movie will follow a boy who believes he caused the wreck, after he placed a coin on the railroad tracks.
While Davis told the LSJ
that some of the roles will be filled by professional actors, the docu-style needs raw, untrained skill, to be authentic. All actors will be paid, Davis said.
The movie is expected to begin filming in May or June. Today's open casting call hopes to fill five specific roles, but Davis wants all kinds of people to be at today's event.
The open casting call runs from 12pm to 5pm at Potterville High School.See LSJ photos from the 2002 train derailment
