KAMLOOPS - A feature film taping in Kamloops this April is looking for up to 200 extras of all ages and from all walks of life to play regular town folk.

Freeman Casting Co. is looking for 100 to 200 extras to play the role of town folk in a feature film being referred to as ‘SHIRT’. Extras are being sought in the age range of 18 to 45, though the company says a little younger or older is acceptable, but you need to be healthy because some scenes will require running.

Taping will take place April 12 to 22 and while some extras will be required the entire time others will be rotated through on daily assignments.

A company representative confirms the name is not the actual name of the film but would not confirm rumours the film is actually Power Rangers, which is taping in downtown Kamloops at the same time. The director listed for ‘SHIRT’ is Dean Isrealite and executive producer is Brent O’Connor, both are listed for Power Rangers as well, as is the casting company for extras.

People interested in auditioning as an extra for ‘SHIRT’ can attend the open casting session at the Thompson Hotel, 650 Victoria St. from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday, April 2, or send a headshot and full body shot photo to kamloopsbg@freemancasting.com. Those applying at the casting call will also have a form to fill out.
