Albuquerque casting call for movie extras

ID2 filming in Albuquerque has released another casting call for talent. The movie is looking for paid background extras to play a variety if roles in the “Independence Day” sequel. The movie’s casting directors are now looking for what they call “new faces”, basically, people who have not yet worked as extras… or any on camera role in the “Independence Day” sequel. Interested? see the available roles listed below.

Independence Day 2“ will be called Independence Day Resurgence.   The sci-fi alien action flick is rumored to be a 2 movie deal.  The first movie in the series is filming now and scheduled to be released in theaters in the summer of 2016.  According to the film’s IMDB page, ID2 has a budget of $200,000,000 and will be set 20 years after the original “Independence Day“, July of 2016.  Looks like the project has quite a few returning cast members.  Jeff Goldblum, Vivica A. Fox and Bill Pullman will all be a part of the new cast.  Joining them are Charlotte Gainsbourg, Liam Hemsworth, Travis Tope and Jessie Usher. While Will Smith, or his character will not be returning for the sequel, his son will.  An ID2  casting call last week mentioned that Captain Steven Hiller’s, now adult son, is part of the film and is a pilot taking part in the fight for planet Earth. Last weeks call was actually looking for military types to play other members in his Air Force sqaud.

    I am clean shaven and wouldn’t mind getting a buzz cut. I could pull of a fresh recruit.

    Hello I am interested in work as an extra. I have experience working as a DEA Agent, military personnel, Delta Force soldier, and have worked for EG Productions in the movie Sicario as well. I have an athletic build and a military-style haircut. Any consideration will be greatly appreciated.
