‘Halloween’ Film Needs Extras

by David N. Grove

Would you like to appear in the new Halloween film?  Are you near the sequel’s filming location, Charleston, South Carolina, or can you travel there within the next two weeks?

Filming on the Halloween sequel officially began this week, and it seems as if the production has hit a bit of a snag.  The production needs more extras than they expected, and they are seeking approximately sixty extras to pose as high school students for one of the first scenes being shot for the film, which has been described as “an alternate reality reboot” of the classic 1978 film Halloween.

The local casting agency hired by the production is specifically looking for submissions from teenagers who are between the ages of fifteen and nineteen and have some dancing ability, as they will appear in a party scene that will be filmed on January 24.  The casting agency, which is accepting applications from all races of people, is currently looking for bookish-looking teens, Gothic-types, and others who are genuinely unique.

For the purpose of continuity, the student extras might be needed for additional days.  In addition to the need for student extras, the production is also seeking general extras of all ages, descriptions, and races.

In addition to extras, the casting agency is looking for actual coroners, EMTs, law enforcement officers, mechanics, and photographers.  All applicants must include two photos (a head-shot and a full-length picture), their name, age, phone number, city and state of residence, height and weight, clothing sizes, and a description and location of any tattoos they might have.

Photos may be taken with a cell-phone.  If any would-be extras have their own vehicles, the year, color, make, and model should be listed in the application.

All applicants should send their applications by email TO THIS ADDRESS.  The header on the email should include ethnicity, gender, age, city, and state of residence.

Star Jamie Lee Curtis made her way to Charleston approximately one week ago.  Curtis is joined on location by co-star Judy Greer, who plays Laurie Strode’s daughter, Karen, and Andi Matichak, who plays Laurie’s granddaughter, Allyson, and Nick Castle, who is returning to the role of Michael Myers after approximately forty years.

The Halloween reboot/sequel film will be released on October 19, 2018.
