THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 01/07/2014 – Casting Directors named for Max Steel, Dawson’s Creek Reunion? and more

Happy Tuesday!  Hope you are surviving the Polar Vortex!  Got a few tidbits for ya.  Starting with Max Steel.

Max-SteelLooks like Max Steel is pushing their schedule just a bit, so offices are going to open a little later than initially planned.  I did get a confirmation this morning, so I gotta give a huge congratulations to Tara and Chase over at Feldstein|Paris Casting for getting the principal casting gig for Mattel’s live-action feature.  I was told there will be some nice day player roles for our local and regional actors.  With that being said, no casting calls have been lined up yet,  so DON’T pester them about roles, just tell your agent to be ready!  No word yet on Extras Casting.  I will keep you posted!

Max Steel tells the story of teenager Maxwell McGrath and alien companion Steel who can combine special turbo-energy powers to generate sensational superhero Max Steel. The storyline centers on bringing a positive and relatable hero to kids, drawing upon turbo-charged teamwork, laughter and friendship.’s got some detailed info about one of the writers as well as the director:

Max Steel writer Christopher Yost most recently rewrote and did the production work on Thor: The Dark World for Marvel and director Alan Taylor. He also wrote the superhero adventure Secret Headquarters for Paramount and Stuber Pictures.

david_billyLove that local media is putting our local actor David Andrews in the spotlight.   He’s got a four episode gig on the new NBC show, Crisis. Congrats David!  Before this project he had a little fun on Brad Pitt’s  World War Z.

DawsonAccording to Ok! Magazine, Katie Holmes is interested in taking part in a reunion of our teen drama, Dawson’s Creek.  If you remember earlier last year Michelle Williams was itching to do one as well.
