Feature Film Titled “Darkest Minds” Casting in Cleveland

A feature film is now casting extras to play soldiers and nurses in Cleveland, Ohio.  Filming will begin in April and continue throughout the summer in Cleveland and Chicago.  Several of the films opening scenes will be filmed in Northeast Ohio.


Darkest Minds is based on the young adult trilogy written by Alexandra Bracken. The film takes place soon after a pandemic kills most of the children and teenagers in the United States. When some survivors develop superpowers, they are deemed too dangerous for society.  They are taken from their families and placed inside camps so that they cannot use their abilities.  The books are very comparable to The Hunger Games series and they cater to the same type of audience.

In fact, Hunger Games co-star Amandla Stenberg was recently cast as the star in Darkest Minds.  Stenberg will play 16-year-old Ruby Daly, a teenager with telekinetic powers who escapes and joins a group of kids, also on the run from the government.  This film will be the first out of three as the director looks to adapt all three books into big budget movies.


Seeking Men and Women that can play government officials and police officers.
Men 5’10” or taller
Women 5’6 or taller

Audition Dates: March 20th – March 23rd
Filming Dates: April 3rd – first week of June

This is a great opportunity to appear as a featured or background extra in what will surely be a box office hit.  The Darkest Minds trilogy is very popular among young adults and it will undoubtedly draw huge crowds for the premiere.  The directors are looking to do what Hunger Games did with the novels they are based on.  This is a perfect chance for you to appear in a potentially huge series with many benefits.  If you impress a casting team member or the director you may find yourself with an even bigger role than you imagined!
