So You Wanna Be In Movies?

by | Dec 13, 2014

If you’ve ever thought it would be cool to be in a film, now may be your chance. Chris Petit, extras casting director for the upcoming Martin Scorsese film, “Bleed For This”, invites anyone and everyone to a film shoot in Providence.

“We have a massive film shoot planned at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center in Providence, Rhode Island. I am reaching out to the entire community to extend an invitation for everybody to join us at this exciting event. It’s very rare to have a Hollywood film set like this open to the general public. We need as many people as possible for this scene to work. It will be the largest film shoot in New England history!”

The film follows the inspirational true-life story of Rhode Island boxing legend Vinny Pazienza and his miraculous comeback to be World Champion after a near fatal car accident almost ended his life.  The movie is produced by Scorsese and directed by Ben Younger.

“We’d love for all of you to be a part of this historic film” says Petit. “It’s sure to be a blast for everybody involved!”

A flyer for the event is included below. Also, here’s some recent press on the film.

Petit states, “It’s a rare behind the scenes glimpse at the nuts and bolts of a major Hollywood production. It’s also an opportunity for the people involved to be forever immortalized on the silver screen. Many of those in attendance will be in the actual movie. We want everybody to be a part of this project with us.”
