The fourth installment of the Paramount Pictures / Michael Bay blockbuster “Transformers” is now filming in Austin Texas and production is looking for some very specific extras. SoPhiCasting is looking for Austin locals ONLY that have some junky cars. The casting call specifies “the more rusty and beat up the better”.
The new film does not follow the human cast of the previous three. In Transformers 4 the Autobots return 4 years later and new characters are introduced. Shia LaBeouf is out and Mark Wahlberg is in as Flynn Vincent. The female lead is played by Nicola Peltz who plays Flynn’s daughter. The movie also stars Jack Reynor, Stanley Tucci and Kelsey Grammer.
The movie will bring back Peter Cullen as Optimus Prime. Bumblebee will also be in the film as will some new Transformers.
SoPhiCasting is seeking Extras ages 18-80s w/ beat-up OLDER MODEL American- made Cars, Trucks and SUVS to work as “Drivers” on the TRANSFORMERS 4 on both Wednesday, June 19th and Thursday, June 20th on location outside of Austin, TX. Only vehicles that are NOT black, NOT red, and not WHITE can be used on this film. And “older” vehicles in this case means vehicles at least 15 years old or older. The more rusty and beat up the better. But needs to run so you can drive it in scenes.
Pay is $200/8 hr (if the shoot goes over 8 hours it’ll be time + 1/2 overtime pay) and an extra $50 if you drive car on camera. Must clear day/night schedule for both dates.
