Roadhouse II Comes to Town

Shreveport- Bossier has a new name---"Hollywood North".    At least that's what the Baton Rouge Advocate calls the city, now that many films and entertainment projects are slated to come to town. And one of those projects, "Roadhouse II" held an open casting call for extras.

About 350 people showed up today at the Bossier Parish Community College campus. T
here they met with the extras casting directors and representatives from the film. Those who needed it also took pictures after filling out forms. "Roadhouse II Last Call" is just one of the projects that has moved here in the wake of hurricane katrina. That production-- which should be released sometime in 2006--- will be directed by Scott Ziehl, whose direction and producing credits include " Boiler Room" . In addition to the extras that should be cast from this area... several film and arts students at bpcc have also gotten a chance to hone their craft.
