Robert Rodriguez fans in Austin, here is your chance to get a small part in his up coming TV series!
Production is seeking Hispanic kids and adults for a scene filming in late January.
Director, writer and producer Robert Rodriguez is currently filming his re-make of the cult vampire classic “Dusk Till Dawn” in Texas and casting has issued another casting call for extras in the Austin, TX area. They are looking to cast Hispanic extras ages 7 through 60’s for various roles including mom types, kids, elders and roles described as ‘staff’. All extras will be paid an hourly rate that will amount to between $60 to around $80 for the day, depending on hours worked.
The scene will film in the latter part of January 2014. You must be a resident of the Austin area with a Texas ID to qualify. Please note that transportation costs and expenses will not be covered so casting directors only want to book Austin residents with reliable transportation to get to the set.
The new television series is based on the original movie that came out in 1996 titled “From Dusk Till Dawn”. The original film starred George Clooney, Selma Hayek and Quentin Tarantino.
The original film also starred Harvey Keitel, Juliette Lewis, Cheech Marin and Danny Trejo. The new series will bring back the old charecters including Santánico Pandemonium (originally played by Selma Hayak) who will now be played by Eiza Gonzalez.
Robert Rodriguez who originally directed the movie “from Dust ‘Till Dawn” will be writing, producing and directing the new TV series. There also seem to be plans for a new Television network called El Rey that Rodriguez is also working on. The “Dusk ‘Till Dawn” Tv series is supposed to premiere on the new network and be the first scripted series for the new El Rey Network.
The new Rodriguez Vampire series is filming now in Austin Texas and a casting call for extras has been released by Austin Texas extras casting director Beth Speko Casting. The show is looking for various extras, you can see the descriptions below.
