“Diary of a Wimpy Kid 4” is now filming and there is a casting call out in Atlanta for kids.
The movie began filming some months back and is still looking to cast small roles / extras. Casting directors are looking for locals who would love to work as paid background extras and have a flexible schedule that will allow them to work on set during the work week. Rose Locke Casting of Georgia has just released a list of upcoming casting needs.
The newest Diary of a Wimpy Kid movie is now filming the 4th installment of the series in the Atlanta area. The movie series is based on Jeff Kinney’s illustrated series of children’s books. The original “Wimpy Kid” movie was released in 2010 with 2 other Wimpy Kid movies following in 2011 and 2012. This newest addition is being called “The Long Haul” and is based on the book of the same name.
It’s been 4 years since the last “Wimpy Kid” movie and the original Greg and Rowley have both grown up. 20th Century FOX held a worldwide talent search this last spring. A few months back, an open casting was being held online to find child actors to take over the 2 lead roles of Greg and Rowley.
“Diary of a Wimpy Kid” follows a young boy as he enters middle school. At the center of the story is Greg and his best friend Rowley. In the book, Greg keeps a diary of his trials and tribulations as he maneuvers through the tricky middle school scene. The story is told from Greg’s point of view.
According to the movie’s IMDB page, Zachary Gordon is cast to play Greg with Robert Capron joining him as Rowley. Rachael Harris, Steve Zahn, and Chloë Grace Moretz are all returning for “Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul.” Devon Bostick, who originally played Greg along with his twin bother, will also be returning to the film, however, he will now be playing a sibling, Rodrick Heffley.
