Extras needed for movie being filmed in WAVE Country
LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Lights, camera, action! Hollywood is in WAVE Country. Have you ever wanted to be in a movie? Well here's your chance!
The secret is out, Kentucky has become a hot spot for films and one is currently being filmed here in Jefferson and Oldham counties.
The movie Already Married is being filmed in Louisville right now. The movie is about how a married woman's life is turned upside down when she learns her husband is already married to another woman.
The producer, Zach O'Brien, is from Louisville and he's thrilled to be back and showing off what our area has to offer. This is the second film in Kentucky for O'Brien.
"Being able to come home from work is like the best feeling ever," O'Brien said.
O'Brien says the tax incentives and film friendliness of the state is what brought him back. Since he's from here, he knows what Kentucky has to offer. His crew was recently out in a Prospect neighborhood, where the main character moves in with her husband.
"Beautiful mansion in Prospect," O'Brien said. "It really shows off the best of Kentucky. A lot of people in New York and L.A. have their preconceptions of what is here. I want to show them that we have the best that there is anywhere else. We have mansions just as nice as L.A."
On Tuesday, they'll be back out filming in Oldham County at All About Kids.
"Oh, my gosh, super super exciting," Crestwood All About Kids Operations Manager Vanessa Zebich said. "They are coming in and filming a movie. First time for me and first time for this facility."
They'll be using All About Kids inflatable area, which is the set for an arcade.
"This is the opening scene of the movie where our lead mom's son gets kidnapped," casting director Anthony Del Negro said.
Del Negro said they need extras and are looking for locals.
"We need parents and kids," Del Negro said.
It's your opportunity that could open some doors.
"Especially for people that are real actors or aspiring actors, they just get a little taste of it," Del Negro said. "It would definitely be a stepping stone."
There are several opportunities to be an extra. On Tuesday, Dec. 12, extras portraying parents and kids are needed at All About Kids in Crestwood from 2 to 7 p.m. On Wednesday, extras are needed for a wedding scene at Eden Springs Farmstead in Simpsonville from 1:30 to 7 p.m. On Tuesday Dec. 19, adults are needed to portray art patrons at Mellwood Arts and Entertainment Center in Louisville. A time for that shoot has not been determined.
