TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Open call casting auditions were held for the sequel of the film Hot Bath an' a Stiff Drink in Old Tucson the second weekend in September.

Filming for the movie will begin Nov. 7 in Old Tucson, Mescal and surrounding areas, according to a news release.

Casting was open to men and women of all ages. The casting directors had actors read for a small number of speaking roles. Specific casting was aimed at men and woman of Chinese decent. Those who attended were asked to dress in period 1890s costume and to take a head shot and resume, if available.

The feature-length film will be directed by Matthew Gratzner. Producers include Jeffery Patterson, Shannon Gans and Gatzner as well.

Director Gratzner attended the casting calls. He is co-founder and creative supervisor of New Deal Studios, having worked on such films as The Dark Knight, Iron man, the Departed, Hugo, Cowboys and Aliens, Shutter Island and the Aviator, to name a few.

"We scouted all over New Mexico and Arizona and there's only one place I considered filming Hot Bath an' a Stiff Drink, and that was Old Tucson and Mescal. The rich history and amazing locations that Old Tucson and Mescal offer are beyond compare, and I am thrilled to be a part of this great Western filmmaking tradition," Patterson said.
