New Orleans native Reese Witherspoon is producing and filming her latest movie “Where the Crawdads Sing” starting this April, and she needs extras.
The Oscar-winner and film actress is turning the New York Times Best Selling novel into a period piece set in the 1950’-60s era. Though the film is based in the Carolinas, it will be filmed in the New Orleans area.
The film needs men and women of all ages to appear in the background of scenes shot around New Orleans and Houma.
“Where the Crawdads Sing”, is a New York Times Best Selling novel, and the screenplay for the movie was written by “Beasts of the Southern Wild” alum, Lucy Alibar.
The film follows Kya, a lonely marsh girl raised by the native land due to family abandonment. Audiences soon learn that Kya is the prime suspect in the murder case of a local man she was once involved with.
Daisy Edgar-Jones, from the TV mini-series “Normal People,” has been cast as Kya.
Pay for extras will be $105 for each 12-hour shift for adults 18+ and $80 for each 8-hour shift for minors.
