Ashley Judd and Morgan Freeman are due in San Francisco right after Thanksgiving to start making "High Crimes." The "Kiss the Girls" stars team up again, this time attempting to acquit Judd's character's husband, who is accused of a mass killing in El Salvador. The now-defunct Alameda Naval Base has been booked for the military scenes. Filming will be done in the Civic Center, Union Square, the Financial District and several San Francisco neighborhoods to be determined. Judd may not know where her character will live, but the actress will be staying in Pacific Heights with her godmother, Piper Evans, who, like Judd, hails from Kentucky.
Dozens of extras are needed for "High Crimes," particularly people who have served in the military. A really short haircut and prime physical condition might be enough to qualify. Those interested should report for an open casting call beginning at 9 a.m. Sunday at the Sheraton Fisherman's Wharf. Aye, aye, sir.
