A New Movie Is Being Filmed In Charlotte And Is Now Asking For More Extras


A new movie is about to be filmed in Charlotte and the director is now looking for Charlotte area residents to be extras. The new feature film is called “American Animals,” staring Evan Peters, Whitney Goin, and Abigail Dolan. It will be filmed almost entirely in Charlotte from February through March.

“Variety” has reported that “American Animals” will be an “unbelievable but mostly true story” of four young men who mistook their lives for a movie and attempted one of the most audacious heists in U.S. history.

Casting directors for the film are now searching for paid extras of all ages groups and types for the new film.

According to the casting call on Facebook, “the upcoming heist film based on true story, will star actor Evan Peters. Peters is acclaimed for his starring role as the character Quicksilver in X-MEN: APOCALYPSE and X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST. He has also received critical attention for his recurring lead character across all six seasons of multi-award winning hit television series American Horror Story.”
