‘Jupiter’ Paid Acting Job Audition Notice and Open Casting for Local Actors!

Casting Notice for a Feature Film to be shot locally in Phoenix this summer!

‘Jupiter’ is a modern re-imagining of a Greek tragedy. Jacob seeks out Rebecca in an attempt to connect with his dark past, but begins to realize she’s not the person he thought she was. Taking from the Greek tradition, every dramatic nerve is touched upon. This tale of love and hate, vengeance and redemption, will keep the audience digging to discover the truth, and reeling once they’ve found it.
