UTICA – A casting call will be held in Utica on Sunday for a movie we first reported on last fall, which will be filmed in and around the Utica area.
“The Cold Days of Summer” is a boxing film based on real-life events. The filmmaker, Michael Flores, is a Frankfort native.
According to the teaser trailer's description on YouTube, "A boxer battles injury, criminals, and an authoritarian school board to save his scholarship and learn the true cost of the American dream."
On Sunday, local community members will have the chance to audition for supporting and featured roles at a casting call in the office space above Bite Bakery and Café in Utica. The casting call will be held from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Actors are asked to arrive ready for the audition with a prepared monologue. Crew members can also submit an email to TheColdDaysOfSummer@gmail.com
There are many roles available for men, women and children, ages 5-75.
