In Georgia, we've got Ozark, Stranger Things and Ghost Draft filming right now and we can expect to see our list of productions continue to grow rapidly. More of these major feature films that have chosen The Peach State for their set locations. Suicide Squad 2 is filming in Atlanta right now too and are casting extras for rebellious types in Atlanta beginning this month.
Despite the first 2016 remake of the original 1935 movie being filmed in Canada and Chicago, the Suicide Squad sequel will set up camp in Atlanta at the end of October. You have the chance to be featured in this DC comic classic and get the fifteen minutes of fame you've always dreamed of.
The film is currently looking for "rebels" so crank up the heavy metal and channel your built up teenage anger as you prepare to cast as an actual feature. The casting team is looking for people to contribute to "a special featured group of rebels fighting for a cause!" (think 'guerillas').
The sequel, which will feature a mix of new and old characters from the 2016 production, are casting men and women ages 18 and up with a wide range of looks.
The Project Casting site indicates that men can have long or short hair and be scruffy or clean shaven. They are looking for talent with Hispanic, Black or Middle Eastern looks. You must be available on several dates ranging from Oct. 24 to Dec. 9 and will be paid $100 for 8 hours (and overtime if the filming exceeds 8 hours) and $25 on fitting day.
Prepare to be starstruck (even though we will miss Jared Leto) because you'll be alongside stars from the original cast like Viola Davis, Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney and Joel Kinnaman, as well as new stars like Idris Elba, who will replace Will Smith.
The film is under codename "El Dorado" which may give us a hint about details for the plot of the film, which have not yet been released. Narcity will follow the story to track down where these stars will be filming and update the story when possible. You can find details about what to include in your application here.
