A movie inspired by a 2002 train derailment in Potterville that forced the town's residents to evacuate for a week will be filmed in Potterville this spring and summer.  The movie's director, Sam Davis, is from Potterville and remembers the chaos.  He was ten years old at the time.

Davis, who helped produce the Oscar-nominated film, "Period. End of Sentence.," will travel to the Academy Awards later this month.  But first, he's hoping to fill some of his new movie's roles with locals.  The new movie will be called "Cents."

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.
