A CASTING agency are searching for artists to take part in a new feature film from the producers of Murder on the Orient Express, Logan, and The Martian.

Uni-versal Extras are heading to Birmingham on the lookout for supporting artists.

This is an opportunity for people to get involved with this new project filming in the region over the coming months.

The film is set over some major cities across Africa, the Middle East and the Mediterranean, so the production team are especially keen to see people who originate from these areas.

The open casting itself is free to attend and any roles obtained are paid work. The only requirement is that any person attending must be over the age of 16 and a half with the right to work in the UK.

Amy Leyshon, events coordinator said: ‘We work on the biggest and best feature films and have provided supporting artists for numerous projects including Rocketman, Disney’s Aladdin and both the Star Wars and Fantastic Beast franchises.

“We have a really exciting project coming up in and around Birmingham and the Midlands, so are looking for people to come and register to work as supporting artists with us. We look forward to meeting everyone.”

The casting will take place from 9:30am to 5pm on Saturday, August 31, in the Macdonald Burlington Hotel, in New Street, Birmingham.
