You May Be Able To Spot Idris Elba Filming Near Arizona Soon
Jay-Z will be the producer. 😯
There's always a chance you could make it in Hollywood. Especially if you're able to play alongside famous actors. If it's your dream to be cast in a movie, we've got a special treat for you. There's a Netflix casting call happening near Arizona next week and it's a once in a lifetime opportunity.
One of the latest movies being filmed by Netflix is set to take place in New Mexico. The film, The Harder They Fall, will be produced by Jay Z with Idris Elba as the main character (what a heartthrob!).
The casting's listing is looking for regular people of "All ages and sizes" to fill many roles as extras. If you're an equestrian, it might increase your chances of being cast because "Horseback riding ability [is] a PLUS!"
There will be two days for you to audition: The first on Tuesday, February 11, in Albuquerque and the other on Thursday, February 13 in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
If you can, they recommend that you bring along a headshot of yourself, otherwise they will take one of you on-site.
Filming is slated to begin sometime in March and even if you don't get hired on as an extra, it's possible you'll still be able to catch a glimpse of the actor as they begin filming in New Mexico.
The Albuquerque Journal stated that "The project will film in and around Santa Fe County as well as Diablo Canyon and ranches in the area."
Idris has played his share of dark roles and this one is no different. He plans on portraying the prisoner in the film, who murdered an outlaw's parents.
The outlaw hears that Idris' character is being released from prison and wants to get revenge. Is it bad that we're still rooting for Elba even though he's technically considered "the villain?"
