Attention Actors in Upstate New York:
There's a casting call next month for residents of Upstate NY as a local filmmaker will be making a short film based upon a Stephen King story published back in 1985 called, "The Monkey."
According to a tweet by Film Schenectady, a local filmmaker is looking to fill as many as three roles, non-union wages of $211 per day, for a short film to be made
While 'Oculus' wasn't a titan at the box office like 'The Conjuring,' it was definitely quite a clever and spooky little horror flick, making director Mike Flanagan a name to keep an eye on. Flanagan has set his next project, and it's certainly going to take someone with clever ideas for an adaptation of Stephen King's 'Gerald's Game'
While all the broadcast networks scurry about with their surprising renewals, cancellations, pickups and scheduling for Upfronts, TNT added a number of exciting new series to their development slate, simultaneously debuting trailers for Noah Wyle's return to 'The Librarians,' 'Transporter: The Series,' period drama 'Public Morals' and more.
In a cinematic landscape where franchises and known properties are a studio's biggest priority, some projects cannot be killed no matter how hard it is to get them made. Witness Warner Brothers' big screen adaptation of 'The Stand,' which now has a fourth director in talks to helm the production.
