An upcoming indie feature called The Identical will be recruiting paid extras at noon this Saturday at the Darkhorse Theater, 4610 Charlotte Ave. Written by native Nashville screenwriter Howie Klausner, who penned the Clint Eastwood adventure Space Cowboys, the feature is calling for all ages, types and ethnicities. More on the film (one of at least four in development with an Elvis Presley angle) from The Hollywood Reporter:
The Identical, a $3 million indie project from City of Peace Films, is taking a surprising approach: the faith-based route. City of Peace president Yochanan Marcellino says the script, adapted by Space Cowboys scribe Howie Klausner from a play about an Elvis impersonator, focuses on Presley's interest in gospel music and his religious roots. The project will star Ryan Pelton, an actual Elvis impersonator. Marcellino says plans call for Identical to include licensed Presley music — a combination of covers and original recordings — but he declined to discuss negotiations with rights-holders.
