#CastingCall: Extras needed for new Irish horror The Third Wave
Tilted Pictures are looking for actors to play infected zombies for David Freyne’s new Irish psychological horror film The Third Wave. Casting will take place in Filmbase, Temple Bar on Saturday November 5th.
The film will shoot in Dublin and Wicklow at the end of November/start December. Doors open at 10:15am, with seven 30 minute workshops running from 11am to 4pm.
The Third Wave, which is scripted by Freyne, is set following the outbreak of an aggressive virus, and sees a young woman wake in a hospital bed. As the horrifying events that led her there are revealed, it becomes clear that the cure is just the beginning. Society has divided into those who were once infected, and committed terrible violent acts, and those who never contracted the virus. In the backdrop, the rise of a terrorist movement, fuelled by the deep divisions, threatens to plunge the region into chaos again.
Ellen Page stars in the lead role The Other Side of Sleep and Monsters: Dark Continent star Sam Keeley.
Rachael O’Kane and Rory Dungan produce for Dublin-based Tilted Pictures, with Page onboard as a producer also. The film will be co-produced by Mark Huffam and Aidan Elliot for the UK-based Bounder & Cad, and French-based Bac Films. Financing for the film comes from the Irish Film Board (IFB), Northern Ireland Screen, and Bac Films.
