Arrested Development and Horrible Bosses star Jason Bateman has announced that he will be making his directorial debut with his new film Bad Words. The movie, which began filming on at the start of the new year, is about a grown man who will also be played by Bateman competing in a national kids’ spelling bee for revenge, but ends up taking a young contestant under his wing. The casting directors are now taking submissions for actors that are interested in auditioning for several roles in the film. Bad Words is a great opportunity for any aspiring actor that is looking for his/her big break.
In the film, the old adage, “Where there’s a will, there’s a way,” is taken to new heights when 41-year-old high school drop out Guy Trilby discovers a loophole that allows him to enter The National Quill Spelling Bee. Designed for 8th Grade children or below, Guy’s entry draws vehement protest and outrage of parent and the organization’s director Dr. Bernice Deagan. Despite having no formal education, Guy quickly advances to the nationals where he meets contestant hopeful Chaitanya, a completely awkward young boy who is unfazed by Guy’s brash and ill-mannered ways. As the competition weekend progresses, Guy teaches Chaitanya some dark comedic life lessons and the pair begin to form an unlikely friendship but he must stay focused on winning the spelling bee.
The casting directors are now taking applications for union and non union actors from all backgrounds. If you are interested in auditioning for Bad Words please submit your application along with a recent photo and basic resume.
