We got a brief glimpse into the new film, "Maze Runner" (which is being shot here in Baton Rouge) when we interviewed its star, MTV's Teen Wolf actor, Dylan O'Brien on May 27th. (See full interview here)
Well, it seems that the production is looking for local actors, with military backgrounds, to play soldiers in the feature-film adaptation of the popular teen-marketed book.
The scenes will be shot over two days around July 8-10 and the producers are seeking eight physically fit men between 30 to 45 years old with short, military-style hair. The chosen will be required to work outdoors in full military gear.
If interested and qualified, please send your information and stats, 2 photos (1 waist up & 1 full body shot. Both should show you clean shaven and wearing a plain white tee and slacks) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applicant's wardrobe sizes should also be included. Sizes sought are 40-44 coats, 32-36 waist and between 5' 9 to 6' 1 in height. Compensation will be $101.50 for 12 hours.
The film is based on the novel trilogy, "The Maze Runner" by James Dashner. The story tells the tale of a boy named Thomas who awakens with his memory wiped to find himself among a community of boys trapped in a maze known as "The Glade." When a mysterious girl arrives with a strange note, their hope for escape is rekindled.
Teen Wolf star, Dylan O'Brien is cast as Thomas with several young actors of note and merit as his co-stars.
The local production has been shooting since early May and is expecting to wrap-up in July.
The film is targeting a release date of Feb. 14, 2014.
