Casting call in Oklahoma for movie extras.
Residents in Oklahoma have a chance to get a small, non-speaking background role in Matt Damon’s new movie “Stillwater.” The movie is now in production in Stillwater Oklahoma and locals are needed to fill a variety of paid extras roles.
Matt Damon and Tom McCarthy are coming together for a new movie called “Stillwater.” “Stillwater” stars Matt Damon and is being directed by Tom McCarthy. In the film, Damon plays Bill Baker, an oil worker in Oklahoma whose daughter gets accused of a murder she claims she did not commit. The character goes on a journey to exonerate his daughter and in the process “embarks on a personal journey of discovery and a larger sense of belonging in the world.” According to Deadline, Participant Media is on board as is Amblin Partners.
Deadline also reports that the movie is Co-written by McCarthy, Thomas Bidegain and Noé Debré with McCarthy directing. Both Damon and McCartht are Oscar winners with McCarthy’s last movie, “Spotlight” winning best picture as well as an Oscar for him for the screenplay.
