Brusimm Cinema Static Movie NewsI spotted some news for casting calls for a few movies… Akira, Iron Man 3 and Riddick: Dead Man Stalking.

These casting calls went out in November, but in two cases, they haven’t started filming yet. And for the one in production now, production companies are always looking while production is live.

In each case, you need to follow the directions at the other end of the links I provide at the bottom of this casting call update.

Not following directions is a sure fire way to not get noticed. With the competition for these roles as they are, I’d think it would be very important to read the directions and insights for each opportunity.

With that said…

Iron Man 3 Auditions and Extras Casting

Iron Man MK VI BD Version_by_J_K_K_S fr deviantART_200w (Iron Man 3)Disney/marvel was looking for principal actors and extras for Iron Man 3. Iron Man 3 cast inlcudes Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Gwyneth Paltrow, & Don Cheadle returning.

Shooting for Iron Man 3 will start in May of 2012 and run through January of 2013. Filming will be taking place in North Carolina and a lot of filming will happen in Wilmington, NC.

Shane Black is screenwriting and directing this third chapter of the Iron Man movie franchise.

They’ll be looking for supporting and day players in NC, as well as extras, photo-doubles and such.


Casting Call for Akira

AkiraYes, Akira.

Akira is being produced by Appian Way, in association with Legendary Pictures and Mad Chance. Appain Way is Leonardo DiCaprio‘s production company.

Akira will be starring Kristen Stewart, Garrett Hedlund, Ken Watanabe and Helena Bonham Carter, and is being directed by Jaume Collet-Serra (Unknown, Orphan).

Akira is a pretty popular graphic novel/franchise and many folk are looking forward to this project. With DiCaprio’s production company and Collet-Serra behind it, well, I have faith in DiCaprio and with Collet-Serra’s past projects, I think this is in pretty good hands.

Filming for Akira will start this spring (March of 2012) in Vancouver, BC.

Extras, doubles and stand-ins will be getting cast in Vancouver.


Casting Call for Riddick: Dead Man Stalking

Vin Diesel as RiddickOh yes, another Riddick movie is coming our way, starring Vin Diesel. Riddick: Dead Man Stalking (which seems to be the working title so far) is referred to as a direct sequel to the first movie we encountered Riddick in, Pitch Black. (Was that not an awesome, fun flick!?)

In Dead Man Stalking, we find Riddick on a desolate planet, battling alien predators and bounty hunters who come calling to collect that price on Riddick’s head.

Too bad for them.

Filming already started, back in October of 2011, in Canada, but if they’re still filming, they may still be looking for extras and day players, as they’ll be looking for such throughout the filming process.

David Twohy (Pitch Black, Chronicles of Riddick, A Perfect Getaway*) wrote the screenplay and will direct and it will be, so far, an “R” rated movie.

I’ve been following the ordeals of this movie via Vin Diesel’s Facebook page ( and he’s a rather gentle, soulful man.

(*If you ever get a chance to catch A Perfect Getaway, I recommend this flick. Try to avoid spoilers or it won’t be as awesome as it could be! A very underrated movie, in my humble opinion.)
