BARTLESVILLE, OKLAHOMA -- A Norman, Oklahoma casting firm is conducting an open casting call for actors and extras to be considered for speaking and non-speaking roles in film to be shot in the Bartlesville area this fall.

In a news release, the film will be a family-oriented Hollywood romantic drama.

Freihofer Casting held its initial casting call last weekend in Tulsa.

The Bartlesville casting call will be held Saturday, August 28, 2010 from 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. and Sunday, August 29, 2010 from 1:00 – 5:00 p.m. at Bartlesville High School at 1700 Hillcrest Drive.

The casting call is open for people of all ethnicities, ages 5 and up, regardless of prior acting experience.

State officials say details of the project and its filmmakers are being kept confidential during the development process.

"I assure you this is a professional, legitimate film project, and one of which I am confident we will all feel proud," said Jill Simpson, director of the Oklahoma Film & Music Office.

Earlier this month, the News On 6 reported Terrence Malick is the director of the film.

Malick, who has lived in Bartlesville, is known for directing the movies "The Thin Red Line," "The New World," "Badlands" and "Days Of Heaven."
