FILM THREAT HAS THE SCOOP! A friendly neighborhood rep from Metropolis comics dropped us this note with all the details about getting a part as an extra in “Spider-Man.” Here’s the scoop:
Metropolis comics has a great opportunity to help provide extras for the Spider-Man movie being filmed in Culver City on Jan 17th, 18th and 19th. Here’s the deal: A bus will be sent to pick up our people from the store’s parking lot if we can get a group of 45 or more. All participants must be over 16 years of age. There is no pay, but there will be casting company reps there for those who want info on paid extra gigs. The bus will return everyone to the store around 7:30pm. ^ The scene being filmed that day features: the very first transformation of Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) into Spider-Man, his first encounter with the evil Bone Saw McGraw (“Macho Man” Randy Savage) in an un-sanctioned wrestling match between Bone Saw McGraw and Spider-Man with lots of special effects. ^ Metropolis comics is located at 8323 Firestone Blvd. in Downey, CA, near the 5, 105, 605, and 710 freeways. Call the store for more details 562-869-1492 as we get them. There will be sign-up sheets at the store – you MUST sign up in order to be included, and if you are not signed up, there may not be room for you on the bus! So call us, get to the store, do whatever you must to get on that list if you want to be there those days – you may come for one or all days!
