We had originally heard that Marvel Studio’s Ant-Man and the Wasp, code-named “Cherry Blue,” is set to begin shooting in Atlanta in June. Now, it appears that the studio is looking for cast members to work in Atlanta alongside Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lily, Michael Douglas and Michael Pena, starting in July.
Central Casting is now casting talent to work on the new Marvel movie Ant-Man & The Wasp, which will film in Atlanta, Georgia at the world-famous Pinewood Atlanta Studios. A large portion of the background acting roles will be hand selected by the directors of the film. Producers are also hiring stand-ins and photo doubles as well.
This casting call doesn’t give us much information on the type of background characters that will be needed (unlike when a Black Panther casting call was looking for warriors), but it does confirm that the project is moving forward close to schedule. We will likely see more casting calls, for more specific types of extras, as production moves forward.
Ant-Man and The Wasp is set for a release date of July 6th, 2018.
