An open casting call for extras in Spike Lee’s upcoming Chicago-based film (the title of which I’m purposely ignoring) is set for this Saturday at St. Sabina Academy in Auburn Gresham. The casting call is being held by 4 Star Casting and is open for all Illinois residents aged 7 to 75 with valid State ID or driver’s license. The agency is looking to hire hundreds of extras for the film’s shoot from May to July.
The Facebook page for the casting call refers to the film as ChiTruth and not as its controversial moniker. Whether this is a leak of the film’s new title or something else entirely is unclear. The casting call comes a few weeks after Lee met with city officials to receive a $3m tax break for the film, during which Mayor Emanuel expressed his dislike for the film’s title.
Full details for the open casting call can be seen in the flyer below.
