Drive a stake into the heart of an orc, rescue a family from a burning castle, or see what’s on the other end of a witch’s brew–stories with fantastical elements have a long history and large fan base that has sustained Hollywood for decades, from “The Twilight Zone” to “Lord of the Rings” and “Game of Thrones.” Visit another world and add a new genre to your resume with one of these projects currently seeking their fantasy casts.
