Oscar-winning director Cameron Crowe is holding an extras open casting call in Hawaii this week for his new film, set to begin shooting in late September.
According to Rich King Casting, two casting sessions will be held – one for union members and one a day later for the general public.
The movie, known as Deep Tiki or the Untitled Cameron Crowe Project, will star Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone and Rachel McAdams.
Bradley Cooper will play a military contractor who returns to Honolulu and reconnects with an old love played by McAdams. However, Cooper’s character also falls for an Air Force handler played by Stone.
Producers are looking for men and women “of all shapes, sizes and ethnicities” with a special emphasis on military experience, Hawaiian dancers and musicians.
The SAG-AFTRA session for union members will be held from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on Sept. 4 at Studio 909 of the Musicians Association of Hawaii offices on Kapiolani Boulevard, Honolulu.
The non-union session will be from noon to 4 p.m. on Sept. 5 at the Keehi Lagoon Memorial, 2685 N Nimitz Hwy Honolulu.
Potential extras need to bring a pen and a 3-by-5-inch photgraph of themselves.
In addition to Deep Tiki, Tim Burton’s Big Eyes will spend a few days filming in Hawaii next week and, of course, Hawaii Five-O continues filming on Oahu.
