Comic Con Documentary Casting: They Want You!

A few months ago we wrote about the rumors of Morgan Spurlock and Joss Whedon teaming up for a documentary about Comic Con. Well, looks like the project is moving full steam ahead – and others have signed on as well, like comics icon Stan Lee, Ain’t It Cool News’ Harry Knowles, and Legendary Pictures’ Thomas Tull.

But wait! There’s more! Yesterday we received the official casting info – I suppose someone thinks that someone in the [GAS] reader ranks might be destined for geeky stardom. Also apparently the name of the documentary is COMIC-CON EPISODE FOUR: A FAN’S HOPE. Details below the cut.


Are you headed to the 2010 Comic-Con International in San Diego? Do you die for diehard fandom? Do you pine over Chris Pine, other Captain Kirks, or have firsthand knowledge of who is the ultimate Bruce Wayne? Is your Lost Ark a long lost collectible, an original edition comic book, a need to be the first in line at a sneak peak of Green Lantern, or to understand the ultimate and undeniable power of Akira?! Are you the original inspiration for comic book guy? Is your collection the biggest? Is your costume the best? Is your dream to propose to your girlfriend and give her the one ring to rule them all? Are you an artist who is showing off your work? A vendor showing off your amazing collection?

If you are any of these things, then we want to hear your story.

Oscar®-nominated filmmaker Morgan Spurlock, producer Thomas Tull, comic book icon Stan Lee, writer/producer Joss Whedon, and film guru Harry Knowles have joined together to bring audiences the feature-length documentary COMIC-CON EPISODE FOUR: A FAN’S HOPE – a documentary celebration of all things con-tastic!

We are looking to cast original, eccentric, funny, touching, and mildly obsessive people that will capture the excitement, enthusiasm, joy, and passion of comic book, anime, sci-fi, and fantasy lovers everywhere.

If Comic-Con International will be the highlight of your year and you have a story to share about your passion, let us know. Join the fellowship, take part in this epic documentary, and write us at [email protected]. Include your name, phone number, a picture, and tell us your story.
