Wonderstruck Starring Julianne Moore Looking for Kids

Casting Call for Kids for Amazon Studios Movie “Wonderstruck” in NYC

There is a new feature film by Amazon Studios called “Wonderstruck” that is now looking for extras. The movie stars Academy Award-winning actress Julianne Moore and Academy Award nominated actress Michelle Williams. Grant Wilfley Casting is looking for both union and non-union children to appear in the film that will be shooting in New York City.

About “Wonderstruck”

The film will tell the story of a young boy in the Midwest and a young girl in New York simultaneously and how their lives intersect fifty years later. The movie is based on a children’s book. According to Variety, “Wonderstruck” traces the gradually weaving stories, though set 50 years apart, of two deaf children who both wish their lives had been different: Rose dreams of a mysterious actress, Ben of the father he has never known. Their stories will finally intertwine as both children set out on quests to find what they are missing: A family.
