Warner Bros. national talent search for new unknown actors

The Project X open call is now closed. The event was a great success with over 50,000 people visiting the open call web site. Cast It Systems would like to thank all of the actors who participated. The casting directors will contact actors directly if they need any additional information or material.


‘The Hangover’ director Todd Phillips and producer Joel Silver are teaming up to produce a super secret comedy with the current working title of ‘Project X’. The casting directors are conducting a national talent search for a cast of actors who have never appeared on the big screen before.

The film, which is backed by Warner Bros. will be directed by Nima Nourizadeh. Nourizadeh was hired over several up and coming directors because of his TV commercial reel and his take on the material for Project X. Nourizadeh has a new Adidas spot, Street Corner, in which Nourizadeh was able to get about 35 celerities who appeared to have been part of a big party.
