Gulf Coast Casting Call

And guess what? 

This Halloween season is getting a classic Stephen King nod. 

Gulf Coast Media spilled the beans that filmmaker Mike Flanagan is scouring the local scene for extras. 

He’s kind of a big deal, and he isn’t new to the eerie world of Mr. King. 

He’s the brain behind Gerald’s Game and Doctor Sleep

Plus, he’s developing a series based on The Dark Tower for Amazon Studios. 

Now, this new movie is an adaptation of the short story “The Life of Chuck.” 

It’s going to feature Thor star Tom Hiddleston and Star Wars legend Mark Hamill

Come October 16, the cameras start rolling, and the action kicks off, continuing for a fun-filled four weeks. 

This is where YOU come in. 

The local casting crew is on the hunt for 1,000 extras!
