Disney Channel movie ‘For Wheelz’ now casting lead roles

Shooting is will begin in July, 2015 on the new Disney Channel Original Movie “For Wheelz”, and the casting directors are auditioning talent for the lead roles, as well as co-starring, and day player speaking roles. Auditions are taking place in Los Angeles and also in Victoria & Vancouver, BC where shooting will take place through August, 2015. Roles are being cast for high school aged teen males and females, as well as adults to play teachers, and some younger roles such as the 8-year-old Karate kids.

“For Wheelz” centers on teenager Mark, who has tried to get his driver’s license five times and five times he’s come up empty. But when the coolest most popular girl in his class asks him to drive her to an exclusive pool party, he needs a sure thing – which is exactly what he finds in driving instructor Glenn Bufferton, a man who passes testees like he passes gas, frequently. Unfortunately, just as he’s about to achieve his dream, Mark’s test turns into a nightmare when the instructor’s life falls apart. Out of options and needing a win, Mark helps reunite this buffoon with his wife in exchange for passing the exam, sending him and his vertically-challenged best friend Russell on a cross-town adventure involving angry tow truck drivers, eight-year-old karate champs, and a maniac squirrel. This odyssey will test the limits of their endurance, the limits of their car, and the limits of their friendship – and pose the question: How far will Mark go to join the ranks of the cool crowd? He’s faced the pressure five times before, but this time it’s For Wheelz.

Daytime Emmy Awards nominee Jonathan A. Rosenbaum will direct “For Wheelz” from a teleplay written by Dave McHugh & Matt Flanagan. Executive producers are Kim Arnott and Robyn Snyder.
