Producers of a movie scheduled to film in Washington County will hold auditions for nonspeaking extra roles on Saturday, Oct. 2.
The minds behind cult phenomenon "The Blair Witch Project" are seeking extras of all ages, including entire families, for a wedding scene and a reception scene in their new thriller "The Possession," according to a press release from the Hagerstown-Washington County Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB).
The open auditions will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Academy Theatre at 58 E. Washington St., near Hagerstown's central parking lot, according to the release.
Writer/editor Eduardo Sanchez, producers Robin Cowie and Gregg Hale and their production company Haxan Films, together with Amber Entertainment, will film "The Possession" across Washington County starting in October.
No firm start date has been set for filming, said Tom Riford, president and CEO of the CVB.
Filmmakers are planning to shoot the wedding scene during the weekend of Oct. 16, he said.
