Kris Kristofferson takes 'For Sale by Owner'

The makers of “For Sale by Owner” have announced their cast.

Kris Kristofferson, Tom Skerritt, Rachel Nichols (“Alias”), Frankie Faison (“The Wire”), Skeet Ulrich (“Jericho”), Scott Cooper (“Broken Trail”), Forrest Sawyer and James Keane will star. The cast also includes Natchitoches resident Joanna Cassidy and Louisiana musician Mark Adam.

The movie will begin shooting April 17 at the Magnolia Plantation near Natchitoches. It is being produced by the Robert Duvall’s Butcher’s Run Films and Shreveport-based Port Pictures.

The movie will be directed by Bob Wilson. He worked as a line producer on “The Year Without a Santa Claus,” which was also shot in Natchitoches.

It is the first project for Port Pictures. Rudy Hines, an executive producer with the company, is thrilled about his stars. “We feel like we got a $10 million cast,” Hines said. ” The script is just unbelievable. It’s a mystery thriller. Everybody’s so excited about this.”

The movie is searching for local people to work as extras. Applicants can attend an extras casting call April 20 between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. at the Natchitoches Events Center, 750 Second St. Those who cannot attend can apply and drop off a non-returnable self photograph at the movie’s production office, 331 Lafayette St., in Natchitoches.

For more information, call the production office at (318) 238-4305.

Can you tell me what the movie is about? Is it based on a novel, or is an original screenplay? I'm a huge fan of Skeet Ulrich and I am excited that he has chosen to do films again.

I don't know yet, frankly. All I've gotten is that it's a mystery thriller. I should learn more very, very soon. Hold on!

I think Steven Hines should be up for a major part.
