Open Call Casting for Sequel Of Ethan Hawke’s 2012 Movie ‘Sinister’.

July 29, 2014 |

The sequel to Ethan Hawke’s Sinister movie of 2012 has begun casting in earnest and will begin shooting in August around the Chicago area – See their full casting details below (and link to official Facebook page). There are even adult roles for any budding parents who want to get in on this action!

Something to think about is that this is a horror movie, so super sensitive kids may not be as well disposed to working on a set like this:

Blumhouse Productions (Sinister, Paranormal Activity, Insidious) is searching for males and females, ages 6-80, all ethnicities/body types, to work as paid non-speaking extras in various scenes. We are searching for “real types”, and children/teens, 7 to 18 years of age, that don’t scare easily! 
We have some great feature roles! We are looking for all shapes and sizes of children—tall short, big and little.

We are filming in Kankakee, Grant Park, and the St. Anne area—August 18th through the end of September. (Some shoots may involve travel to Chicago)

We are especially searching for “real types”, and the following roles for one and two-day scenes:

Mother and Father – (30’s/40’s, Caucasian) – men with beards are great! We love those little Abraham Lincoln type beards. Stern but fair, church-going types.

Mother and Father – (30’s/40’s, Caucasian) model/good-looking, homey feel; Norman Rockwell types.

Mother and Father – (30’s/40’s, any ethnicity, especially Asian, Latino, Middle Eastern) Working class type.

These roles involve acting in a scary scene that is graphic in nature (blood, disturbing themes, etc.). We need people who can take direction and commit to the scene to make it look believable. If cast you will work closely with the principle actors and the director, and you will be featured in the scene. These are very exciting roles!

To be considered, send in your photos immediately to! Even though we don’t start filming until August 18th, we are casting RIGHT NOW. We need to cast these roles in the next few days!!!! In the subject line of the e-mail put the role you are submitting for, for example “Mother” or “Father”

If you are submitting for the kid roles put your child’s age, gender, and height in the subject line. For example, “Female, 4’11, 85lbs”

Send in a recent color photograph (no headshots or comp cards, no sunglasses or hats in the photos), with your height, weight, age, and phone number.
Please list any skills you might have, for example dancing, fishing, skateboarding, music, acting, etc.
