Actor William Fichtner (The Lone Ranger, The Perfect Storm, Black Hawk Down) from Cheektowaga, New York, will make his Directorial debut with Cold Brook, scheduled for WNY production this summer in Buffalo and East Aurora.
The film stars Fichtner, along with Kim Coates (Sons of Anarchy, Black Hawk Down, Resident Evil: Afterlife) and Harold Perrineau (Zero Dark Thirty, 28 Days Later, Lost).
Fichtner says, “Cold Brook” tells the story of two ordinary guys in a small town who embark on an extraordinary adventure. It’s a story about coming home; something everyone, everywhere has an innate desire to do”.
The film’s original screenplay was written by William Fichtner and Cain DeVore.
Local filming in East Aurora will begin mid-July.
Fichtner would love to have area residents involved as extras.
The scenes being shot in East Aurora take place in the area of Main St.
There will be two bar scenes with approximately 30 extras needed. They must be adults, 18 years and older.
Another scene will be in a coffee shop. For that scene they are looking for 5 extras.
Anyone interested in being an extra should email firstname.lastname@example.org. In the email they need to include their name, contact information (please specify in the subject line if you are from East Aurora) and a recent picture. The production team will respond with additional information.
