Gill Holland

Louisville-based film producer Gill Holland is preparing to audition actors for the low-budget movie he’s shooting in Louisville this summer.

Holland said he’ll start auditions for the comedy – working title “Game, Set, Match” – starting next Tuesday afternoon, March 29.

Insider Louisville broke the story a couple of weeks ago that Holland is working with Louisville author James Markert on the project, which is scheduled to shoot in June.

Actors who are members of the Screen Actors Guild can email Laura Morton about the movie, he said. Morton’s email is: [email protected]

Non-SAG actors can drop off resumes and head shots today or Monday with the third floor receptionists at Holland’s The Group Entertainment headquarters in the Green Building.

The Green Building is at 732 E. Market Street in NuLu, just east of downtown.

Holland said there is no confirmed cast yet, “though some recognizable TV faces have expressed interest.”

Emmy and Spirit Award nominee Tim Kirkman is directing the film. Kirkman and Holland worked together last in 2005 on Loggerheads, which Kirkman wrote and directed and Holland produced.

Loggerheads premiered at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival where it was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize for Best Dramatic Feature.

Holland is making “Game, Set, Match” with Markert, who had a local bestseller last year with “Requiem Rose,” a thriller set in the 1920s at the reputedly haunted Waverly Hills Tuberculosis Sanitorium in southwest Jefferson County,

Markert also is a tennis pro/instructor at Blairwood Tennis Club in Louisville.
