Captain America – Is this a casting call for extras?

RedditWhatsAppTumblrShare

I recently posted the news that Marvel Studios Captain America movie was going to be filming in Manchester and Liverpool.

The reason for this is that the cities have buildings which fit in with the World War 2 setting. With that in mind have a look at this open casting call for a film called Frostbite.

‘Extras’ needed in Manchester & Liverpool for a sequence on a major new feature film called FROSTBITE.

If you fit ALL the criteria below, and are free for both the fitting and the filming dates we would like to invite you to an open casting on Saturday 21st August in Manchester. Full details are at the end of this email.

Unfortunately we can only see a certain number of people on the casting day and if you do not fit the brief below you will be turned away.

CRITERIA:
This film is set during the 2nd World War and we have a very specific brief we need to meet for both male & female ‘extras’ in Manchester & Liverpool.

WOMEN:
• Your hair length MUST be between Chin Length and Shoulder Length.
• Hair longer than shoulder length may need to be cut, so if you currently do have long hair but are happy for production to cut it nicely on or just below your shoulders, let us know at the casting.
• Hair must have NO HIGHLIGHTS at all or be obviously dyed.
• Afro hair must be in natural condition.
• NO SUNTANS (unless skin is naturally Olive/Black)
• NO FAKE TAN AT ALL
• Women cannot be taller than 5’8

MEN:
• You will need to be prepared to have a short back & sides 1940’s haircut, with enough hair on top of your head to push into a side parting (if nature allows)!
• Hair must have NO HIGHLIGHTS at all or be obviously dyed.
• Afro hair must be in natural condition.
• NO SUNTANS (unless skin is naturally Olive/Black)
• NO FAKE TAN AT ALL
• Men cannot be taller than 6’ 2

FILMING DATES – MANCHESTER & LIVERPOOL
At the moment you need to be free for ALL of these filming dates however this is subject to change once filming begins. We will confirm dates when we book you.

Filming dates: SEPT 22nd, 23rd, 24th, 25th, 26th, 27th, 28th, 29th, 30th & OCT 1st

Okay, no mention of Captain America in the casting call, but it has a World War 2 setting, is filming in the two cities we know will be involved in the shoot and the name of the film is Frostbite. Captain America ends up being frozen in ice and the suspended animation effect is the reason he ends up in the modern day which gives a connection to the name. It is common practice for big films to use fake names when they are shooting.

The casting date is 21st August. Thanks to Phil for the info.

What do you reckon? Is it the Cap shoot? Will you be going along for the casting?
