PORTLAND, Ore. - An Oregon-based casting company announced this week that it is seeking about 2,000 people to serve as extras in a new feature film starring Harrison Ford and Brendan Fraser that will begin shooting in the state next month.
The film, a medical drama tentatively being called "The Untitled Crowley Project," is based on the story of John Crowley, a father who risked his family's future to pursue a cure for his children's life-threatening disease. In the movie, Fraser, who plays Crowley, enlists the help of Ford, a medical researcher, to save his children.
The casting company, Extras Only, said it is looking for people of all ages and all types. Filming starts in April and will continue for three months. Extras do not need to be available for the duration of the filming, as some people will only work a day or two and others will work multiple days.
Extras make a minimum of $68 per day for an 8-hour day.
A casting call is happening Sunday, March 29, at the Lloyd Center Doubletree hotel between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. The company wants people to bring their vehicle to the casting so it can be photographed and possibly used in the film as well.
The casting company said they take digital photos and no prior experience is required.
