SyFy Channel “Age of Ice” now filming in Detroit Michigan – Extras Wanted


The SyFy Channel original movie “Age of Ice” is looking to cast some paid extras to work this week in Detroit Michigan.

Casting directors at Ryan Hill casting ( The Ides of MarchRed Dawn, A Very Harold & Kumar 3D ChristmasThe Double, Freaky Deaky, Sparkle) are looking to fill some “Egyptian” and “Tourist” roles.

This is a low budget film and extras may make about $50 per day. The extras needed are for a crowd scene and they are also looking for some people who can fill background roles on a volunteer basis because they need more people than the production has a budget for.

The production will also need some featured extras at a later date. Those who volunteer to be in the crowd scene will be considered to be featured on another filming date.

The film is set in Egypt but actually films in Michigan. Detroit Michigan locals only since no travel will be covered.

For Tuesday they just need 1 “Elderly Woman” (actual age is not important).
