Various casting sites have been seeking actors for a new film from Blumhouse and The Purge director James DeMonaco called The Night, which will begin filming this May in New York City.
While story details are slim, The Night centers around three friends in 1982 and an eventful, adventure-filled night they experience in Staten Island, New York.
“The production is casting a male actor, aged 14–18, for the role of Albie Lenza. The team is searching for talent that is Caucasian or Latino/Hispanic.
“Physically, Albie is squat, like “a human bulldog.” He is neither a cool kid nor a nerd, is best friends with Anthony, and happily joins him on his quest. Albie and his family are Staten Island, New York natives. Performers should have a New York or East Coast feel. An authentic accent is a plus, but not required.”
Thanks to @owslajosh for the heads up.
