Rumors about the Bartlesville film project began to spread quickly after Affleck and his wife, actress Jennifer Garner, were spotted Aug. 10 in Broken Arrow's Bass Pro Shop, buying fishing supplies. The couple signed autographs and posed for photographs for store employees and customers.
Malick, who grew up in Bartlesville, has directed such films as "Badlands," "Days of Heaven" and the 1998 remake of "The Thin Red Line."
The current project held its initial casting call last weekend in Tulsa. The Bartlesville casting call will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, and from 1 to 5 p.m. on Sunday at the high school, located at 1700 Hillcrest Drive in Bartlesville.
The call is open to people of all ethnicities, ages 5 and up, regardless of prior acting experience.
