A new film is in production in the Atlanta area and there are new casting calls released for extras and featured to work on “The Founder”.
The movie’s extras casting directors have released casting calls to fill small roles in scenes filming next week. ECA is seeking golfers, doctor types, 1950s car hop girls (featured roles) and men / women between the ages of 20 to 50 something to portray customers at a restaurant. The movie is set in the 50s and the project is seeking background extras who are able to look like they belong in the 50s (No modern hair cuts, piercings, tattoos, etc.).
“The Founder” will focus on the beginnings of the McDonald’s Franchise.
