Well, Zoey (my youngest daughter), and I, made the papers today! She is beyond excited! Yesterday, we went to a casting call for the remake of Children of the Corn. The original was also filmed in Iowa in the Souix City area.
Apparently Stephen King was more than dissatisfied with the original. The remake will follow his book more closely and is being made for the Sci-Fi Channel, due to air sometime in 2009.
Zoey and I are both horror film buffs and she was extremely nervous and excited for the opportunity to be in the film. Casting calls are being conducted through Monday but we wanted to beat the rush. So we went early yesterday morning, still batteling a ton of people for the opportunity.
We made it through the first step and now wait for call back auditions. Even if nothing comes of it, it was definately an experience for both of us!
