Southern Kentucky’s fledgling film industry is taking another step in its development. A casting call will be held in Cave City on April 11 for the second film to be produced in collaboration with the Southern Kentucky Film Commission.
The movie, called “Mail Order Monster,” is a family film about a young girl dealing with the death of her mother. The cast includes a variety of characters, including middle schoolers, a sheriff and an Italian restaurant owner.
Branscombe Richmond is one of the producers of the film. He says the open casting call signals an opportunity for Southern Kentucky.
“It’s important for Kentucky because we’re going to start to open up an opportunity to see if there is some talent that can ready to be in a motion picture and a television show. A lot of times the actors come from Hollywood or New York or Chicago, or wherever they have a pool of talent.”
