A new movie called “Crooked Arrows” — telling the underdog tale of lacrosse players from a Native American tribe taking on big bad Prep School teams — is casting for lacrosse players next week at Wellesley’s Sprague fields complex.
The emphasis will be on males 18+, though some younger players and female players will also be needed for the movie. Speaking and non-speaking roles are being cast. Full details here regarding the auditions.
Get set for sparkling dialogue, such as this, as players face off during a game:
Player 1: You’re gonna wish you had pads.
Player 2: Bring it, wonder bread.
Player 3: Your homemade sticks won’t work
against body armor and machine guns.
Brandon Routh, of “Superman Returns,” has signed on to star in the film, which is being directed by Steve Rash (“The Buddy Holly Story,” “Can’t Buy Me Love,” etc). The movie is slated to premiere next year.
Lacrosse doesn’t have nearly the history of say baseball or boxing in the movies, though is a theme within the American Pie movie series.
