HANGOVER Director Todd Phillips’ PROJECT X Begins Open Casting Call

     April 19, 2010


Last week, we reported that director Todd Phillips (The Hangover) and producer Joel Silver (Sherlock Holmes) would be teaming up to produce a $12 million “raunchy comedy” starring a college-aged cast comprised of complete unknowns.  Now, Deadline reports that the website ProjectXOpenCall has gone live and is accepting submissions from “unknown actors/real people of all ethnicities,” and who “Must be legal 18 & able to play 18 years old, U.S. residents only.” Details on the film itself remain scarce.  It will be the feature debut of British music video and commercials director Nima Nourizadeh.  Deadline also reports that Phillips and Silver have been developing a script last fall, written by Matt Drake from a treatment by Michael Bacall (Scott Pilgrim vs. The World).

Hit the jump to check out a music video and a commercial from Nourizadeh and break a leg if you choose to audition for Project X!  Todd Phillips’ next film, Due Date, stars Zach Galifianakis, Robert Downey Jr., Jamie Foxx, and is slated to hit theaters on November 5th.
