Schedule Change Creates Immediate Needs for THE UNBREAKABLE BOY Film

A short-notice schedule change Wednesday night has created the need for new extras coming up for the feature film THE UNBREAKABLE BOY, now filming in the Oklahoma City area.

Some people will need to get into testing for Covid-19 before 4:00 pm today.

The film stars Zachary Levi, best known for the film SHAZAM!. Levi is also known for such films as TANGLED and THOR: RAGNAROK and for the television series THE MARVELOUS MRS. MAISEL and the title role of the TV series CHUCK.

Told in the charmingly unpredictable voice of an autistic teen with a rare brittle bone disease, THE UNBREAKABLE BOY is a funny and inspiring true story of a young couple stumbling through parenthood, who find constant inspiration from the joy and optimism of their spectacularly unique son.

The film is written and directed by Jon Gunn and produced by Andy Erwin, Jon Erwin, Jerilyn Esquibel, Kevin Downes and Peter Facinelli.

Strict health and safety procedures, following all union guidelines, will be followed on set.

Pay for extras is $80/day. Anything over 8 hours on set will result in additional pay at $10/hour.

ALL APPLICANTS MUST BE COMFORTABLE WEARING MASKS AND PRACTICING SOCIAL DISTANCING AND SELF ISOLATION AS BEST AS POSSIBLE!

ALL PERSONS MUST BE WILLING TO TEST FOR COVID-19 TWO DAYS PRIOR TO FILMING. TESTING WILL BE PAID AT $20/PERSON AND WILL CONSIST OF A SIMPLE MOUTH SWAB. THE TESTING IS A WALK-UP WITH NO APPOINTMENT NEEDED ANY TIME BETWEEN THE HOURS OF 10:00 AM AND 4:00 PM IN OKC BRICKTOWN. TESTING TAKES LESS THAN 5 MINUTES.
