There's An Open Casting Call For A Montreal Baby To Be Shia LaBeouf's Child In A New Movie
  • Many movies are being filmed in Montreal this winter, and Shia LaBeouf is the star of one. The casting director for his new film is looking for a Montreal baby to play in one of the scenes!
  • The parent and baby chosen will be under ACTRA Union’s supervision, which means they will always have a sterile room on set to rest in and will get paid ACTRA Union rates.
  • Read below to find out how your baby can star in Shia LaBeouf's new movie!

Many movies are being filmed in Montreal this winter, including one that Shia LaBeouf is starring in. The casting director for Shia LaBoeuf’s new movie is looking for a Montreal baby to play his kid in the film, so your child could get their claim to fame at a young age! If you're a new mom or a woman about to give birth and you feel like you have some unexpected extra time on your hands, then why not have your baby play the child of one of Hollywood's elite?

Shia LaBeouf and Vanessa Kirby will be filming a movie in Montreal as of December 3, 2019. The film is called Pieces of a Woman and it will be directed by Kornel Mundruczo.

Although the plot details have yet to been announced, we do know that they will begin shooting at the start of November and plan to wrap it up at the end of January.

We also know that they are urgently calling on all Montreal moms who are about to give birth or any parents who have a newborn child to be a childhood star in their film.

They are seeking a newborn child or twins, to play Shia and Vanessa's baby between December 4 and December 6, 2019.
The child must be a minimum of fifteen days old and should be three weeks by the time filming begins.

The scene that your baby could be starring in will be a home birth scene.

Your baby can be featured in that precious moment when a mother holds her child for the first time - on-screen that is. 

The project is being held under ACTRA Union’s supervision. The child that is chosen and the mother will be taken care of and will even have a private and sterile room to rest in.

This is a paid role so its an opportunity allowing your newborn to earn his or her first paycheck, and would only require one day of shoot between December 4 - 6 tentatively. 

With so many movies being filmed in Montreal throughout the winter, it comes as no surprise that certain roles are looking to be filled by locals.

I never thought that a 15-day old baby would have a better chance of meeting Shia than I would, but here we are. I guess I will just have to hope to run into him throughout the streets during his stay. 

The post asks for interested parents to email with details and contact information. 

So, if you are a new mom or are about to give birth, this is your chance to have your baby pay for his or her diapers. I guess it is never too early to start making money!
