Extras Needed Soon for REAGAN

The next group of extras needed to appear in the feature film REAGAN has been announced. Filming is in Guthrie, OK.

REAGAN 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, taking on the Soviet Union.

The film stars Dennis Quaid as Ronald Reagan and Penelope Ann Miller as Nancy Reagan. The film also stars David Henrie and Jon Voight.

The film is directed by Sean McNamara (SOUL SURFER, EVEN 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. There is additional pay for COVID-19 testing and wardrobe fittings. The COVID-19 test is a simple, non-invasive cheek swab. See below.

All extras will be required to come to Guthrie for a COVID-19 test (Paid at $10/hour for a guarantee of 2 hours) four to five days prior to filming, and a wardrobe fitting on set (paid the same rate) two days prior to filming. This is mandatory and cannot be skipped. The COVID-19 test takes just moments and can happen any time between the hours of 10:00 am – 4:00 pm. COVID testing cannot happen at any other location. It has to be handled through production.

Wardrobe fittings occur during the hours of 8:00 am – 8:00 pm and take about 30 minutes. Casting will do their best to work with your schedule for fittings.
