With filming already under way in the city for Hollywood action flick Mission Impossible IV, starring Tom Cruise, Dubai-based production company Filmworks is seeking both experienced actors and extras to take part in the project.
Three speaking roles are being cast, for which experience is essential: one Arabic male, one European male and one European female. Over 1,000 background extras are also required, and males and females of every nationality encouraged to apply. Auditions for speaking parts and casting for extras will take place during October, with shooting for the roles set to begin in November.
According to Adam Ridgway, managing director of casting agent MediaCubed.com, through which interested parties should apply, response to the call has so far been ‘overwhelming’.
