Auditions for Featured Roles in Michael Keaton’s New Movie “The Founder” – ATL

05/13/2015

A new movie will begin production in Atlanta next month… “The Founder”  starring Michael Keaton.

Atlanta area casting directors will begin holding auditions shortly for featured roles in the project. They are also seeking talent to work as background actors and stand-ins. The film is set in the 50’s, so the CD’s are interested in people who do not have very modern looks. They are also seeking folks who have some older cars (1956 or older) that may be used in the film.

A new film is in the works about the man behind the McDonald’s Franchise, Ray Croc. “The Founder,”  is an upcoming drama starring Michael Keaton as McDonald’s mogul Ray Kroc. “The Founder” will be directed by John Lee Hancock (“Saving Mr. Banks,” “The Blind Side”) and Robert Siegel (“The Wrestler”) is writing the script. According to an L.A. Times article,  “The Founder”  will tell the story  of how Kroc, a salesman from Illinois, met burger-slinging brothers Mac and Dick McDonald in 1950s Southern California and parlayed their company into a billion-dollar empire.
