Walk-on spot in 'Crazies' up for auction
Winner will appear in Overture/Participant horror thrillerAuction Cause and Participant Media have teamed up to present an eBay charity auction for a walk-on role in Overture/Participant's horror thriller "The Crazies," with the proceeds to benefit Greenpeace.
Directed by Breck Eisner, "The Crazies" revolves around the inhabitants of a small Iowa town who are beset by death and insanity after a plane crash lets loose a secret biological weapon into the water supply. The film was inspired by George A. Romero's 1974 cult classic of the same name.
The winner will be offered the role of one of the infected townspeople when it shoots on location in Iowa on April 17.
The auction can be found online at www.ebay.com/crazies, and ends at 7 p.m. PST Thursday, April 9.
Participant deals in entertainment that inspires social change, and president Ricky Strauss explained, "Since 'The Crazies' deals with the dangers of bio-toxins, we're delighted to be able to offer fans the opportunity to realize their dreams of appearing in a horror film while supporting an organization dedicated to protecting the environment."
