New Miley Cyrus Disney Feature Film "The Last Song" Auditions and Casting Calls

Offspring Entertainment and Walt Disney Pictures has begun pre-production on the Nicholas Sparks feature film "The Last Song" starring Miley Cyrus and casting is now underway for actors and extras in Georgia.

    BURBANK, CA, April 11, 2009 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Miley's mother, Tish Cyrus will executive produce, Adam Shankman and his sister Jennifer Gibgot will handle production for Offspring Entertainment. Principal photography begins summer, 2009 and will run through late August, 2009. The filming locations will be in Savannah, Georgia and other nearby coastal locales, Julie Anne Robinson (Pushing Daisies, Grey's Anatomy, Samantha Who, Coming Down the Mountain) will direct. The film centered on a rebellious young woman who is sent to spend the summer with her estranged father.

The movie is expected to bring approximately 250 jobs to the state of Georgia. Georgia's new, more competitive incentives offer a 20 percent tax credit for qualified productions, which are then eligible for an additional 10 percent tax credit if they include an animated Georgia promotional logo within the finished product. The incentive covers more than just the film and television industries. The program also offers credits for commercials and music videos, as well as the first incentive in the nation to cover other areas of development including animation, interactive entertainment and video game development.

Nine feature films, two television series and one television pilot were produced in Georgia in the first quarter of 2009. A Sony Pictures produced television series began production in Georgia in April and three feature films are currently in production. Seven more feature films are slated for the state in the coming months.

Offspring Entertainment and Walt Disney Pictures are scheduled to begin working on another project called "Fear Phil" after this film wraps up production.

The Miley Cyrus Disney film Hannah Montana The Movie is now playing in theaters.
