football istock Football Players Needed For FilmLocal football players can try out for roles in a movie starring Kurt Russell set to be shot in western Michigan.
Tryouts will be held Wednesday in Grand Rapids for players between 18-30 years old with extensive football experience.
Russell will play the head high school football coach in “Touchback,” a Freedom Films production about a despondent man who attempts suicide, but wakes up to find himself in the past, reliving his high-school football glory.
The Grand Rapids Press says the movie that co-stars Melanie Lynskey and Christine Lahti will be shot this month in Grand Rapids and Coopersville.
Russell portrayed Herb Brooks in the 2004 movie “Miracle,” about the 1980 U.S. Olympic team. The veteran actor also appeared in “Escape from New York,” “Death Proof” and “The Thing.”
