Sci-Fi Channel movie to film on Kauai
LIHUE » Roger Martin-Corman, the son of Hollywood "B-movie" king Roger Corman, is scheduled to shoot a movie on Kauai for the Sci-Fi Channel.
The movie, with a working title of "Primeval," is about a genetic experiment gone awry, and is set to star Brad Johnson, Bianca Lawson and Kelly McGillis, of "Top Gun" fame, Kauai officials said yesterday.
It's scheduled to start shooting May 27, with production likely to take five weeks. And they're looking for local talent.
Up to 20 speaking parts, including a significant role for a male graduate student and work for about 75 extras will be available, Kauai officials said.
"We're looking for people with some acting experience, but it's not absolutely necessary," said Amanda Nugent, production manager for the movie.
They're looking for women, ages 18 to 30, with a flair for the dramatic who don't mind being eaten by an alligator, and eccentric men with lots of energy are ideal candidates, she said.
Those interested in applying for a part can send an e-mail to Nugent at amanda.nugent@ yahoo.com.
The last film shot on Kauai, another sci-fi thriller partially filmed on Kauai last year, "Komodo vs. Cobra," is scheduled to have its premiere on the Sci-Fi Channel on May 23.
