Why would exteriors and 2nd unit be filming if thereís no cast?

I'm assuming with the lack of news leaking, I'm guessing PTA is casting unknowns for this one?

assuming it's an ensemble we may be getting some unknowns with a few large names for selling points. the casting did say they were looking for authentic San Fernando Valley boys

Yeah, things are dead quiet now. Some casting rumors at least would be nice. It's almost March. I just hope this doesn't turn into another situation like The Master where it keeps getting pushed back.

Another Master situation would be awful. It was announced in what...2009? 2010? Then came out in 2012. But I also think during that time they announced Jeremy Renner as the lead but then changed it...

I don't think it'll be pushed back. Right now I think we're probably going to get news around May or June.

The Master situation is different because it was originally set up with Universal but for various reasons such as budget, they pulled out

Focus is already committed to the film so budget shouldnít be a concern. I think thereís legitimate struggles in finding the correct actor. Sounds like a excessive casting search

Timothee Chalamet is right there 😭😭😭

Truth be told...i think PTA might want a Noah Jupe type of kid. But not Noah Jupe himself. Maybe 14? Just starting High School? Idk if I would be a fan of that. I would prefer someone who is 16 or 17... Idk.

The premise sounds commercial enough that he might not have pressure to cast stars. So heís taking his time.

Come on, why all the panic? Inherent Vice was supposed to start principal photography in late May '13, and the casting announcements (except Joaquin) didn't start to formally drop till April.
It might be difficult to find the right youngster for the lead, indeed, and I think his wish to work with a totally newcomer makes things harder (if he wanted to work with someone known, then I guess he would have already shared it to public).
Also, I'm not buying he won't cast any big names on this one but again, define "big". I consider let's say Sandler, Benicio, Witherspoon or Manville to be big.

itís ridiculous to imagine a hollywood notable casting a non-bigname actor. itís genuinely not within their mental capacity

is this sarcasm because they do it all the time

granted, it's much rarer for kids, but we literally just had a season where roman griffin davis was nominated for a golden globe for jojo rabbit

you definitely wanted to reach for Gus Van Sant and Paranoid Park, rather than Jojo for obvious reasons

i picked an easy fight just to troll PTA fans, i don't know more than any of you do, we'll all find out, i literally said don't at me

I get it now I see the confusion I meant there is bound to be a name actor somewhere based on probability, it was sloppy phrasing, ďa hollywood notable casting only nonnamesĒ is antihollywood and rarely happens
