We told you about the new movie Half Dead Fred that is set to start filming right here in Flint this October. The brainchild of writer and director Bron Theron is described as a thriller/horror flick, which we all love.  We were lucky enough to have both Theron and star of the movie, actor Corin Nemec, in the studio recently to talk about the upcoming film and honestly we can't wait to see this movie!

It's no surprise that immediately everyone wants to be "a star" and get a shot at finding themselves on the big screen. Now, let's be honest, who wouldn't want a chance to be a in real movie, right? I myself gave my best "pitch" the Theron I will admit. So will any locals have a chance to be part of the cast? The answer is yes.

Theron told us they are currently casting for the film, and will in fact be using extras from around the area. While most of the major roles have been cast, there is till some time to get yourself a spot in the thriller/horror flick. If you are interested you can submit a headshot and resume to halfdeadfredcasting@gmail.com.
