There’s a casting call for December 9.
JULIETTE, Ga. — Our #Scene13 team reports that a major casting agency is looking for extras for a Juliette shoot next month and the most likely project is one starring Scarlett Johansson, Channing Tatum and Ray Romano.
CL Casting issued a call for white males on Dec. 9 for a 1969 NASA shoot in Juliette.
CL Casting is the same company that provided Movie Extras for the Jackie Robinson biopic “42” starring Chadwick Boseman and Harrison Ford, and “Best Of Enemies” starring Taraji P. Hinson and Sam Rockwell, each of which was cast in Macon filmed.
The pay is even higher than average for extras that would indicate a large production. People selected as extras are promised $75 for their fitting day in November, and a guaranteed $182 for a shooting day that can last up to 12 hours, with another $50 to cover gas on the two days.
If Juliette, home to a sleepy mill town that served as the backdrop for the movie, “Fried Green Tomatoes,” seems like an odd choice for a NASA shoot, Georgia Power’s Plant Scherer served as the setting for a NASA scene in 2017’s Oscar winning movie “First Man” starring Ryan Gosling. The film was about Neil Armstrong’s journey to become the first human to walk on the moon and the dramatic space race against the Soviet Union that made it all possible.
The most likely candidate for this movie is “Project Artemis”. ProductionList.com says filming would begin in Atlanta at the end of October. Movie Insider also confirms that Project Artemis is shooting in Georgia.
A TV station in the Savannah area also reports that there is a casting call for a shoot for “Project Artemis” near Savannah in late November and early December.
IMDB says Apple TV+’s movie production revolves around the 1960s space race, though all other information about the plot is currently closely guarded. Confirmed stars include Scarlett Johansson, Channing Tatum and Ray Romano. The movie website also says Rose Gilroy wrote the screenplay and Greg Berlanti is directing.
There is no confirmation on whether any of the main stars for the filming will be in central Georgia.
Insider publication Deadline.com says Apple paid up to $100 million for production rights to the film.
There is a tie between Scarlett Johannson and Macon. Several scenes for the Marvel production ‘Black Widow’ in which she starred were filmed in and around Macon’s Terminal Station in 2019.
Georgia Power told 13WMAZ they could not confirm the specific investigation at this time, but added the following statement.
“Georgia Power supplies or properties are often in demand as locations for Georgia’s burgeoning film industry. In fact, in partnership with the state, we have helped bring in over $2.7 billion in film industry spending to Georgia and we have a website dedicated to it We are happy to help grow this exciting industry in Georgia, but cannot confirm the specific research at this time.
