ANOTHER EARTH Q&A with Calleri Casting

Director: Mike Cahill
Written By: Mike Cahill, Brit Marling
Stars: Brit Marling, William Mapother
Awards: 2011 Alfred P. Sloan Feature Film Prize - SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL

Q&A with the incredibly busy and talented CALLERI CASTING (James Calleri, Paul Davis, and Erica Jensen) regarding the casting process on the HIGHLY acclaimed film ANOTHER EARTH which hits select theaters this weekend. ANOTHER EARTH was a big winner at Sundance and is generating incredible buzz.

Calleri Casting is a juggernaut that casts many notable Film, TV and Theatre projects such as Lifetime's "Army Wives", "A Raisin in the Sun", "Hope & Faith", and many more. Visit their site for more info: Without further ado, let's get to the Q&A:

Kabookit: How did you get involved with ANOTHER EARTH?
Calleri Casting: A former colleague of Paul’s from USA Films put us in touch with one of the film’s producers, Nick Shumaker, who sent us Mike & Brit’s treatment for the film. We fell in instant love for the project and people involved.

Kabookit: Can you provide a brief overview of how the Casting process went?
Calleri Casting: Mike and Brit were wonderfully actor-friendly in sessions – the process was very organic/fluid. For example, Jordan Baker read for the role of Dr. Joan Tallis but we cast her to play Brit’s mom. We embarked on casting at a point when there wasn’t a full script – just the treatment and some clips of Mike’s unique visual style, so actors took a leap of faith in coming in for us. And we were very improvisational in the audition room (special credit goes to our top drawer audition reader, Elliotte Crowell Simian, who was extraordinarily adept at bringing out the best in actors’ auditions.)

In finding the right actor to play John Burroughs, we encountered a bit of perfect synchronicity (appropriately in line with the movie’s sci-fi elements) when we sat down for a general meeting with William Mapother. The light bulb went off and we knew he was our man.

Kabookit: Every movie features actors who may not be well known to general fans (yet). Are there any names/faces we should be keeping an eye from ANOTHER EARTH?
Calleri Casting: Brit Marling – is the one to watch. Everyone will know her soon.

Kabookit: ANOTHER EARTH has received a lot of critical praise and there seems to be a general buzz about the film. Assuming you’ve seen the film, what’s your take?
Calleri Casting: Beautiful strong lyrical film. Strong point of view from Director and Writer. We take away something new every time we see it.

Kabookit: What are you working on now?
Calleri Casting: Casting two films: One for producer Nick Shumaker (THE PINES by Alex Mar) as well as EMOTICON for Livia DePaoli.. Co-produced and cast REFUGE for writer/director Jessica Goldberg. Upcoming release THAT’S WHAT SHE SAID directed by True Blood’s Carrie Preston. Season six of ARMY WIVES starts in the fall.
