Movie casting call in Mobile Alabama

Extras needed in Alabama for a new WWII drama.

USS INDIANAPOLIS: MEN OF COURAGE”  is in production in the Mobile area and is looking to cast lots of extras for a big scene filming this coming Tuesday. Residents of the area interested in getting cast in a small, non-speaking, extra role may follow the below instructions to get their photos and information over to the film’s casting directors at Goleman Casting.

“USS INDIANAPOLIS: MEN OF COURAGE” will star Nicolas Cage as Captain Charles Butler McVay of the USS Indianapolis. The ill-fated ship was torpedoed in the South Pacific in July 1945, during WWII. The ship was tasked with a top secret mission, delivering parts to Guam for the first atomic bomb. The ship sank killing over two thirds of the crew. There were 1,196 men on board the ship. 100’s were trapped and went down with the ship leaving the survivors fighting for their lives in the shark infested waters as they waited for help to arrive for 5 days. During the 5 days in the water, the men, who were thirsty, hungry and tired, were repeatedly attacked by sharks. Of the 1196 men, only 317 survived and Captain McVay found himself being court-martialed. 5 decades later, McVay was finally exonerated.

USS INDIANAPOLIS: MEN OF COURAGE, tells the remarkable true story of survival. Filled with tense action and brave heroes, it is the ultimate untold story of WWII.

    Hello, I’m Michael Rawls, I sent an email regarding being part of the filming in Mobile Alabama, I haven’t received a reply yet. I just wanted to make sure that it was accepted. Thank you.

      Unfortunately casting directors have too many submissions to be able to reply to all of them personally. Generally, you would only hear back if they wanted to cast you. Not hearing from anyone usually means you may not have met their immediate needs and they may get hundreds of submissions for just a few open roles.
