Director Matt Walker, of Angel Motion Pictures, is from Grimsby and he said they are in talks with Universal Studios to distribute the film.
He said: "Actors such as Callum Blue, from The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement and Smallville, and Sarah Smart, who has featured in Doctor Who and Sarah Manners, from Casualty and The Bill, will be auditioning for the lead roles.
"I plan to shoot entirely around Grimsby and Lincolnshire – it's only a small budget production of £870,000 – so we are doing a lot of product placement deals for props.
"These include one of Paul Weeks' venues, The Bank, for pub scenes and we plan to do the same for estate agents and shops."
Matt added that because he is from Grimsby he always said his first directed film will be shot locally.
Auditions are open from noon to 5pm on the Thursday and from noon to 7pm on the Friday.
