“Looking for lots of different extras, but especially anybody who is of Italian descent or who looks like they could be a NY mobster in the 1950s,” Meyers said on social media.
Anyone hoping to be an extra in the film is asked to send their photo, contact and sizes to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Though there were no reports on when “Wise Guys” will start filming, the Cincinnati area has already seen its fair share of stars this year. “The Bikeriders,” a film that features “Elvis” star Austin Butler in addition to Jodie Comer and Tom Hardy, has been filming in the Tri-State this month.
“Turtles All the Way Down,” a movie based on John Green’s bestseller also filmed in Cincinnati this year.
The official trailer for “Bones and All,” a movie filmed throughout the Tri-State last year, dropped just a month ago. The film starring Timothee Chalamet and Taylor Russell will be released in select theaters Nov. 18 before a wide release on Nov. 23.
