Casting Call for Short Film "My Dinner With Werner"
Production Start Date: 09/01/2017
Production Wrap Date: 09/30/2017
Production Schedule: 5 days in September
Synopsis: Inspired by the real-life turbulent relationship between the dangerously eccentric film director Werner Herzog and his insanely volatile muse Klaus Kinski, My Dinner With Werner is an outrageously wild comedy short film about an 80s dinner date with an unsuspecting murder plot as the main dish.
Seeking the role of Werner (mid 30s). A character greatly inspired by the famously eccentric German film director Werner Herzog in the mid-to-late 80s. In My Dinner With Werner Werner wears a weathered collar t-shirt and thick mustache. He looks as if he just walked on foot from the sands of Ghana (and he might have). Like a German Chuck Norris, Werner has an odd, casual penchant and tolerance for danger. But with his tall, thin physique and messy mop of brown hair, he also has an exceptionally austere, deadpan demeanor that grants him a fundamental strangeness. In a thick Bavarian accent, he speaks frankly, without a worry for the receptions of his words.
