Gotham Group is in the pre-production stage on the upcoming feature film “Camp X-Ray” and the Primetime Emmy Award winning casting director for the movie is holding auditions for lead, co-starring, and supporting roles. The extras, photo doubles, and stand-ins for the film’s stars will be cast closer to the start of shooting. Production is set to take place in Los Angeles, CA and will begin principal photography on July 15, 2013.
“Camp X-Ray” centers on female soldier Cole, who joins the military so that she can escape her suffocating small town. Although she hopes for a tour of duty in Iraq, she is instead shipped off to the outpost known as Guantanamo, a temporary detention facility at the Guantanamo Bay detention camp of Joint Task Force Guantanamo on the U.S. Naval Base in Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. Cole is met with hatred and abuse from the Muslim men in her charge, and finds herself forging an odd friendship with Ali, who has been imprisoned at Gitmo for eight years. While serving her country to the best of her abilities at Bravo Block, she is also subject to the attempted affections of her superior officer, Sergeant Randy without any action or sympathy from Commanding Officer Colonel Drummond at Gitmo.
Starring in “Camp X-Ray” is Screen Actors Guild Awards nominee Kristen Stewart playing the lead role of Cole. In addition to her SAG Award nomination, Stewart has also won three People’s Choice Awards, eight Teen Choice Awards, four Kids’ Choice Awards, a Young Artist Award, seven MTV Movie Awards, and a BAFTA Award. This role marks Kristen Stewart’s first serious foray into possible Academy Award nomination territory under the auspices of four of the best producers in modern Hollywood. Prior to the start of shooting “Camp X-Ray” Stewart will play the lead role of Delphi in the feature film “The Big Shoe” directed by Steven Shainberg. Kristen Stewart is repped by Ken Kaplan of The Gersh Agency.
Filmmaker Peter Sattler will direct “Camp X-Ray” from an original screenplay that he wrote himself. Sattler is an accomplished Graphic Designer, and this will mark his feature film directorial debut. His credits include “The Wendell Baker Story,” “Walk the Line,” “Star Trek,” and “Take Me Home Tonight” among others. Gotham Group’s Lindsay Williams and Primetime Emmy Award nominee Ellen Goldsmith-Vein will produce along with Independent Spirit Awards nominees Gina Kwon and Sophia Lin.
