Get ready for some buddy cop drama in Roanoke.
This fall, Alexander Films will release a movie that will be shot right here in the Star City.
The movie is called "Crossing Streets.” The story is about what happens when a Roanoke city detective and a Methodist pastor cross paths.
Crossing Streets is a film about gangs on the streets and how flawed people overcome obstacles.
"A Methodist minister and a Roanoke city detective who come together to solve a gang-related shooting and that's the incident, so they're working to find the shooter, some of the elements we don't want to give away,” producer Marc Hutchins said.
The film will also highlight the mission of Straight Street. This is an organization that offers help and a safe place for teens.
If you'd like to be a part of the film, casting will take place Friday at Greene Memorial Methodist Church from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., and 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. Casting will also be held Saturday from 9-11 a.m., and 1-9 p.m.
"Crossing Streets" is a SAG-AFTRA film, so both union and non-union actors may attend. Callbacks will be next weekend. If you can't attend email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The movie will be shot between March 7 and March 29 in Roanoke.
