Casting call for lots of paid extras in GA
James Franco’s new film, “In Dubious Battle” has a casting call out for extras ages 18 to 75 to work around the Atlanta area. James Franco is directing the film as well as starring in it. Franco has lined up a major A list cast which include Bryan Cranston, Selena Gomez, Ed Harris, Robery Duvall, Vincent D’Onofrio, Josh Hutcherson, Christian Slater, Sam Shepard and Danny McBride.
“In Dubious Battle” is based on the John Steinbeck novel about a mane (Played by Franco) who tried to unionize fruit pickers. It is set in the 1930’s, in a fictional region of California.
Casting directors with Tammy Smith have a call out for local talent to work as extras on set. There is also another call out for stand-ins. James Franco’s “In Dubious Battle” begins filming on the 18th and will be shooting in the Bostwick, Senoia and Duluth areas of Georgia. The new film is seeking Caucasian extras between the ages 18 to 75. The film is set in the 30’s so extras should have a natural look. Men applying should be open to getting a 1930’s hair cut if needed and ladies must have natural hair colors, hair of any length is OK though. Extras applying for the gig must be willing to drive to the filming locations at their own expense. Bostwick is about an hour East of the Atlanta area and Senoia is about an hour south of GA.
In Dubious Battle is a 1936 novel by John Steinbeck. The central figure of the story is an activist for “the Party” (thought to be the communist party, though it is never specifically named in the novel) who is organizing a major strike by fruit pickers and looking to get more people involved in his cause. The book focuses on a fight between labor and capital in 1930?s California, a fictional area of California. “In Dubious Battle” explores themes that Steinbeck explored in future work as well, group behavior, social injustice, man’s inhumanity to man. Franco will play Jim Nolan, a man who gets involved in the movement and its organization.
