Casting call for extras for local movie shoot

Fort Macleod residents have another chance to see themselves on the silver screen.
A casting call will take place Saturday, Aug. 25 for extras in “The Right Kind of Wrong,” a movie to be shot in the Pincher Creek area.
“It’s a romantic comedy about all of life’s little challenges,” casting director Alyson Lockwood said.
The casting call for people ranging in age from 12 to 70 years is from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday at the Town of Pincher Creek gymnasium.
A four-piece quartet of musicians who play voilin, viola and cello is also needed for the movie.
People who attend the casting call will fill out an application form and will be photographed.
Scenes from “The Right Kind of Wrong” will be shot in the Pincher Creek area from Sept. 17-21.
“It’s not all of those days the people will be needed,” Lockwood said. “We’re hoping most people will be available for the required days, but we have some flexibility.”
No acting experience is necessary for the people who will be cast as extras.
“The Right Kind of Wrong” stars Ryan Kwanten, who plays Jason Stackhouse in the HBO television series “True Blood.”
Kwanten’s character in “The Right Kind of Wrong” is Leo Palamino, a failed writer made famous for his many shortcomings in a blog titled “Why You Suck,” written by his ex-wife.
Leo meets Collette, who he believes is the girl of his dreams. The trouble is, Collette is already engaged to marry another man.
Leo sets out to prove he is the right man for her, even though he is famous for being wrong.
Collette is played by Canadian actress Sara Canning, who co-starred as Jenna Sommers in the TV series “The Vampire Diaries.”
Canning, who like Kwanten has previous movie experience, is set to star in the new Canadian TV series “Primeval: New World.”
Also starring is Canadian actor Catherine O’Hara, known for her work on SCTV and such movies as “After Hours,” “Beetlejuice,” “Home Alone,” and “The Nightmare Before Christmas.”
“The Right Kind of Wrong” is based on the book “Sex and Sunsets” by Tim Sandin.
The film is produced by Robert Lantos, directed by Jeremiah Chechick and written by Megan Martin.
The Town of Pincher Creek gymnasium is at 962 St. John Ave.
