feature film to be shot on location in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, will be holding its Major Casting Call Sunday June 24, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 22 South Main Street in Doylestown.
Actor/Producer, Clifton Powell (Ray, Norbert, Rush
Hour, Friday After Next) will be in attendance along with Writer/Director Thomas Phillips, Executive Producer Dave DeLellis and the Producing team of
Jesse James Jackson, Jr. and Nathan File of Jersey Style Films Inc.

The North Star, a dramatic depiction of the perilous journey to freedom made by two escaped slaves, is set in 1850 during the time of the Underground Railroad.
It is the story of passionate men and women, black and white, risking their lives to save those fleeing the horrific fate of forced servitude.
Based on true life characters, the epic North Star is destined to become an American Classic.
Thomas Phillips, who researched and wrote the script, and Executive Producer Dave DeLellis are proud Bucks County residents and feel fortunate to have assembled a team consisting of Two Retired Military Drill Instructors/ Film
