Are you ready to make your mark on Atlanta’s film and TV industry? Are you the next Tyler Perry? ATL is in need of young stars. Check out the Peach City’s latest casting call for your chance at fame. 


The movie, which is based on the classic 1986 video game of the same name, stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Details about its plot haven’t been released, but in the video game, three monsters destroy cities and American landmarks while dodging attacks by helicopters and tanks.

What are they looking for?

Boys and girls age 9-12 of all ethnicities are needed for a zoo field trip scene. New faces only are needed, and if you’re an adult who will be working on this scene, your kids can’t be cast as well.

When are they filming?

Filming will take place in Atlanta on June 19 and 20, and kids will need to work both days.

How much does it pay?

Pay is $80 for eight hours with overtime after that (10 hours maximum).
