John Steinbeck’s “In Dubious Battle” is being made into a film and has a casting call out for male stand-ins.
The film has lined up an incredible list of stars. which include James Franco, with Robert Duvall, Ed Harris, Josh Hutcherson, Bryan Cranston, Vincent D’onofrio, Christian Slater, Sam Shepard and Selena Gomez. James Franco is directing the project. Casting directors for the project have released a cast call for a male James Franco stand-in, see below. The film begins shooting in GA on the 18th of this month and will film for about a month. While stand-ins do not appear on camera, the casting call does state that the person cast will get a great opportunity to work closely with the actors.
In Dubious Battle is a 1936 novel by John Steinbeck. The central figure of the story is an activist for “the Party” (thought to be the communist party, though it is never specifically named in the novel) who is organizing a major strike by fruit pickers and looking to get more people involved in his cause. The book focuses on a fight between labor and capital in 1930’s California, a fictional area of California. “In Dubious Battle” explores themes that Steinbeck explored in future work as well, group behavior, social injustice, man’s inhumanity to man. Franco will play Jim Nolan, a man who gets involved in the movement and its organization.
