Thriller Movie seeking extras

By Brandon Troullier - bio | email

LAFAYETTE, LA (KPLC) - Roll Camera!!! and ACTION!!! A new thriller movie called, "Swamp Shark" will be biting its way through Lafayette as the filming has just begun for the movie.  But like all movies...it needs extras.  Today, hundreds from all over the region stood in a long line in humid weather outside Active Film Services.

People like Fabian Strauss came from a town right outside of Opelousas, La and waited over two hours in line for the doors to open.  The thought of actually being in a movie has really motivated the public to come out like Cassandra Turner, a grandmother who has moved to Lafayette because of Hurricane Katrina.  She thinks that her  3 grand kids would love to see her in a movie.

The calls start going out on this Friday for those who are selected and will continue until around June 18th.
