Movie Shooting in Minnesota With Stranger Things Star Looking For Extras
Here's your chance to have a brush with Hollywood: the movie filming in Minnesota and starring a big Stranger Things star needs a bunch of extras this upcoming weekend!
In case you didn't know, the movie is filming in Jordan, which is a few hours from the Twin ports. The movie is called Marmalade and the big draw of the film is that it stars Steve Harrington from Stranger Things.
Joe Keery is currently in Minnesota filming the movie and it's causing a huge stir in the state! During one of the first days of filming, locals flooded to Jordan to try and catch a glimpse of the Netflix star. Some lucky fans were successful, too!
The movie is described as a dark comedy named after the girlfriend in the film. It is told from the perspective of a man named Baron, who is in jail reminiscing to his cellmate about his ex and a bank heist they committed together. The movie has a ton of twists in the plot as well.
Now, you have a chance to get into the action by being an extra! Please note that you have to be available THIS weekend, with extras needed on Saturday, July 9th. Thankfully, if you are interested, the drive to the Twin Cities is only a few hours!
Extras are needed for two different parts. The first role needed is for a featured extra. The right person for this role is between seven and ten, caucasian and with shoulder length brown hair. The role will be paid $15 dollars an hour.
It sounds to me like this is for a younger version of Joe Keery's character, which would be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity! If you have a child or sibling that would be a good fit for the role, you can apply by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
That is not the only opportunity to be a part of the film though. Regular extras are also needed for Saturday (July 9th). These extras will be unpaid but again, it is a cool once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be in a film with a big star.
The film needs male extras ages thirty years old and up. You must be fully vaccinated to take part in the film. If you are interested, you are asked to send your name, phone number and a photo to email@example.com.
According to the Northland Casting Facebook page, the film is in its final days of filming which means this is likely your last chance to be a part of the film and to spot Joe Keery in person! Who knew Minnesota was the new Hollywood?
By the way, if you do apply to be an extra, make sure you apply as soon as possible as the filming already begins this weekend. It will be a quick turnaround, as they just shared the roles that were needed for the film. Good luck!
There have been a few opportunities to be an extra in this film since they began filming in June. Many people want in on the action, as the person who runs the Northland Casting Facebook page shared that she received over one-thousand submissions for extras after a casting post. I am not surprised!
As of now, there is no word on when the film will be out. Since filming is wrapping soon, hopefully it will be sooner rather than later. I know a lot of people (Minnesotans) who are going to be running to theaters to catch it!
In other Minnesota movie news, there was a movie recently filming in Duluth. The film is called Merry Kiss Cam and it was filmed around Duluth, with a good chunk filming in the downtown area. A television star in the movie was even spotted shopping around the area!
