Independent Feature Film Seeks Two Portsmouth Based Actors

Portsmouth, UK

“If you want to get rich, you start a religion.” - L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology.

Caught mid-escape on the eve of judgement day, a lying cult leader is trapped by two of his most devoted followers. As Joseph Layton attempts to manipulate his way out to escape with his fortune, his followers begin to initiate the Realignment procedure to bring him back to the fold – and to see through the foretold mass sacrifice.

The latest project from Apple Park Films and Familiar Stranger Films is now casting two lead roles in the upcoming feature film, The Mire.

The Mire will be shot over five to six days next February (dates TBC). It’s a single location, dialogue driven thriller about the lengths people will go to belong to something. Due to the dialogue heavy nature of the script, it’s important to get the casting absolutely right. The film has the potential to go the distance and we want to be sure we do everything possible to ensure it does. Physical descriptions of the characters have not been provided, as we are looking to cast the person who makes us sit up and take notice as rather than fitting a look. We’re looking to see show reels from actors from the Portsmouth and immediate surrounding areas. We’re not looking for crew at the moment, so please no applications for crew roles as yet.

While all expenses will be covered, there is no upfront payment for the film. We are currently looking at financing options.
