The major feature film REAGAN, set to begin filming in the Guthrie, OK area very soon, has announced an additional need for extras, scheduled to work in the first and second weeks of filming.
The film tells the story of of how a young boy escapes poverty, finds his way to Hollywood, and then becomes the 40th President of the United States, ready to take on the Soviet Union.
The film stars Dennis Quaid as Ronald Reagan, David Henrie, Jon Voight and several actors not yet announced.
The film is directed by Sean McNamara (SOUL SURFER, EVE STEVENS, THAT’S SO RAVEN). It is written by Howard Klausner (SPACE COWBOYS).
Extras will be paid a guarantee of $80/day for up to 8 hours of filming. Anything over 8 hours will incur overtime.
All extras will be required to come to Guthrie for a COVID-19 test (Paid at $10/hour for a guarantee of 2 hours) five days prior to filming, and a wardrobe fitting on set (paid the same rate) three days prior to filming. This is mandatory and cannot be skipped.
