Casting call for Mid-Ohio Valley movie to be Feb. 26
BELPRE — A casting call for a new movie by Dizzyboy Productions will be held 1-6 p.m. Feb. 26 at 1614 Washington Blvd.
“No Knock List” will be about two escaped felons, Keith and Lou, who plan to pull off a heist so big, it will set them up for life. They arrive at a bed and breakfast owned by a mysterious recluse Ms. VanGobels, who is known in town to be rich beyond measure.
As they begin to follow through on their plans, they slowly find themselves lost in a strange and often frightening world within the converted mansion. Will they survive their stay? Will they learn horrible truths?
