Boston Casting has sent out a few notices this summer for auditions for Native-American actors for a feature film. It hasn’t been clear which upcoming local film the auditions have been for, but we’ve figured it out. They’re for “Crooked Arrows,’’ a movie about lacrosse that will be produced by J. Todd Harris, who worked on “The Kids Are All Right,’’ the local movie “Black Irish,’’ and last year’s “Piranha.’’ Other producers include Mitchell Peck, who coproduced the recent movie “Priest,’’ and Phillips Andover grad Adam Leff, who’s been a contributing editor at Vanity Fair and wrote the stories for the movies “Bio-Dome,’’ “PCU,’’ and Arnold Schwarzenegger’s “Last Action Hero.’’ According to the United Native American Cultural Center’s Facebook page, “Crooked Arrows’’ will film in Massachusetts next month. The posting also says that the auditions - which will be held in Devens on Thursday and at the Boston Casting offices on Saturday - are for small parts and leads. Perhaps some of the Boston Cannons will have cameos.
