LOOKING FOR LEADS AND EXTRAS FOR SHORT FILM “WILLA”
This production of “Willa” is based upon a short story written by Stephen King and published in 2006.
Reminiscent of an old-fashioned ghost story, the characters find themselves at a stand still after their cross country train derails in Wyoming. We follow David Sanderson as he attempts to find his fiancée, Willa, as quickly as possible before the pick-up train arrives. What David finds in his journey across the wolf infested desert and into a local honky-tonk bar, however, is that Willa is right about him; he never sees what is right in front of his eyes.
If interested, please email “firstname.lastname@example.org” by February 12th with resume and reel, if possible.
