Today Acting-Auditions.org is reporting that Dead Fish Films and Parlay Pictures are in pre-production on the true story baseball themed independent feature film "Undrafted" starring Chace Crawford. The project is a talent-laden production from top to bottom. The film's casting directors are accepting audition videos from Los Angeles based talent for starring roles in the film. Both SAG-AFTRA and non-union talent are welcome to submit. An official "Undrafted" casting website has been set up for actors to download the audition sides and then upload a homemade video for consideration. Shooting will begin on September 9, 2013 in Los Angeles. The film's extras will also be cast in Los Angeles throughout production.
"Undrafted" is based on a true story and centers on a very special day in the life of a promising young baseball player named John "Maz" Mazetti. After he discovers that he was not drafted, Maz has an epiphany one day that changes his life forever. Starring in "Undrafted" is four-time Teen Choice Awards winner Chace Crawford playing the role of Arthur Barone. Crawford will also executive produce. Young Artist Awards winner Joe Mazzello will play the role of Pat Murray. Mazzello will also produce and direct "Undrafted" from an original screenplay that he wrote himself. Also producing is Dead Fish Films president Eric Fischer and head of development Brianna Lee Johnson.
