Movie in Chinatown: Looking for All Types, Especially Asians

Hi Everyone! Please Read Carefully.

AsianBoston Casting & Media is the casting agency for a short film being shot here in Boston's Chinatown and surrounding area. The name of the film is Movie Short: HELL, starring Rich Manley. Judging by previous work and concepts, this lead actor and production company have great potential in the industry, and I am sure you will be happy that you are a part of this project.

Film Summary:
Ryan Blackmore had it all. Back in his hometown of Boston, Massachusetts, after years of specialized police training, Ryan has finally secured an elusive position on the local force and reunited with the one person he has always done everything for - the love of his life, Lisa. His ambitions and talents had materialized the dream he always wanted. But just when the future looked like heaven, a dark secret arose from the ashes of his past. Now... weeks after her brutal murder, Ryan blazes through the breakneck city streets with a single objective: to exact revenge on the mysterious stranger who extinguished Lisa's life and threw him into an emotional hell.
