Casting call: True Grit in LR

Posted By on Mon, Dec 14, 2009 at 7:50 PM

We've mentioned previously that the producers of a new film version of  "True Grit" are looking for fresh talent for the film, particularly for Mattie Ross, the teen looking for the killer of her father.

1) We understand a local gal made a good impression on directors in an earlier call in Tennessee.

2) There's a call this weekend in LR, as promised. 10:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Peabody Hotel. More details on the jump.

NOTE CORRECTION: I wrote erroneously originally that the casting was at the Statehouse Convention Center, which is next door to the hotel.

NEWS RELEASE

My name is Debbie DeLisi. I'm assisting Rachel Tenner, Casting Director of the newest Coen Brothers film, "True Grit." We're so excited to be conducting a casting search in the state of ARKANSAS!


At this time, we're focusing our search on the lead, Mattie, a 14 year old girl (ages 12 - 16 invited to attend). We're hosting an Open Call in Little Rock on Sat, Dec 19!


I'd be happy to connect you with Rachel Tenner, Casting Director, if you'd like to interview her.


I'm hoping you'll help spread the word by passing this along-- as you probably know someone who fits the description! We'd also like to keep you posted about future roles, additional notices, etc.


MOVIE CASTING NOTICE!


PARAMOUNT PICTURES IS SEEKING:
12-16 YEAR OLD GIRLS
FOR THE LEAD IN A NEW COEN BROS FEATURE FILM
“TRUE GRIT”
SHOOTING SPRING 2010.
NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY

SEEKING GIRLS FOR THE ROLE OF “MATTIE ROSS”:
14 year old Mattie is a simple, tough as nails young woman. Her steely nerves and straightforward manner are a shocking contrast to the way women behaved in the early century.  She's possessed of true grit and plenty of determination.  Enough so, that she insists on going with 2 marshals to hunt down the killer of her father.


We are looking for a girl who’s tough, strong and tells it like it is.
We are open to all looks!
