"Magic Mike" sequel filming in Georgia

"Magic Mike" is back in action. The sequel to the hunktacular 2012 movie starring  Channing Tatum in the lead role and Alex Pettyfer, Olivia Munn, Joe Manganiello  and   Matthew McConaughey is going to film in Savannah.

The new movie, "Magic Mike XXL," with Tatum, Manganiello and Pettyfer returning and Amber Heard, Jada Pinkett Smith, Matt Bomer and others joining the fun, stars soon and needs a bunch of extras. 

Here's info from the casting folks. Note - they are looking for people "local to Savannah" and are pretty clear on the work ethic you need to exhibit. Here you go:

"MUST be available ALL day, both days, Monday and Tuesday, October 6 & 7. This is a match shot. As always, the pay rate on this $64/8.

(Also, everyone, whenever we email you work, you must assume it is ALLDAY LONG. Of the 100 emails we sent out Friday, about 50 people wrote back, "I have school... I need to leave early..." No. Just say you are not available. We get it. We all have lives. But you are not going to be the first person in the 23 years of casting that I say, "oh sure... you can leave early. No problem. We'll just CGI you into the shot we started shooting.")
