Casting Call: Child Actor For Lead Role In Steven Spielberg Film “The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara”

Steven Spielberg’s adaptation  of the Pulitzer Prize winning  novel, “The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara” is now in  pre-production. The story revolves a young Jewish boy, secretly baptized by a Catholic maid who subsequently was taken from his Jewish home to be raised as a Catholic.

Spielberg is looking to  cast a  boy between the ages of  6-9 who looks Jewish Italian. An Italian accent is not required for the role. The movie will be  filmed on location in Bologna and other parts of Italy and  is scheduled to be released at the end f 2017.

kidnapping-of-edgaro-mortara-movie

The following information  was  released by the Maryland Film  Organization  regarding the  film.

Steven Spielberg film “THE KIDNAPPING OF EDGARDO MORTARA”

EDGARDO — BOY age 6-9 to play 6 years old. This is a unique and very challenging part for a truly special boy. The story deals with the complexity of an extremely intelligent and gifted child’s situation – his desire to return to his family and the faith of his ancestors, pitted against his ability to learn the Catechism and engage with the Pope on a level far beyond his years. HE SHOULD APPEAR TO BE A JEWISH ITALIAN child. We are not looking for any kind of Italian accent. LEAD.

STORY LINE — Steven Spielberg is making a film about the true story of EDGARDO MORTARA – a 6 year old Jewish boy from Bologna who was reported to have been secretly baptized by a maid, and was deemed by the Catholic church therefore to be Christian. Pope Pius IX (to be played by Mark Rylance) decreed that the boy could not remain with his Jewish family. He was seized by the Papal State and taken to the Vatican where his indoctrination into Catholicism began. This was a cause célèbre of mid-nineteenth century European politics and the domestic and international outrage against the pontifical state’s actions may have contributed to its downfall amid the unification of Italy. This is an incredible story of real historical relevance.

To submit: Email delisicreative@gmail.com.
Subject line: EDGARDO SUBMISSION / Name of boy, your agency, city/state.
Body of email: Your agency contact info, boys name/age/d.o.b, city/state of residence, along w/current non retouched photos.

If you want to include a brief introduction, bio or resume, please do! Edgar needs to be highly intelligent…. please note any related, special, or fun facts so we get to know him! –

Synopsis: Becky’s husband is a roofer, her adult son lives in the basement, and her job at the car dealership takes up too much of her time.
