Central casting will be hosting the open call and are particularly interested in South American types, Military and Government types and those that have older model cars made between 1975 and 1985. Since the film is set in the 70s and 80s, they need extras who have timeless looks that do not look overly modern.
Doug Liman and Tom Cruise are reuniting on the Universal Pictures project. The pair worked together on the sci-fi film “Edge of Tomorrow”.“Mena” will be directed by Doug Liman and is written by newcomer Gary Spinelli. Tom Cruise will be starring in “Mena“, a thriller about a pilot caught up in the Iran Contra Scandal.
In “Mena” Tom Cruise will be playing a recently fired TWA pilot who is also an ex Navy Seal. The pilot gets approached by the CIA to help them smuggle drugs out of South America. The pilot gets entangled in what ends up being known as the “Iran Contra Scandal”, a plot which involved smuggling drugs in order to fund an illegal weapons program.
