ATLANTA — Are you a fan of Denzel Washington? Do you want the chance to be in a movie with him? Well, you’re in luck.
Washington is producing a new streaming adaption of August Wilson’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play “The Piano Lesson” for Netflix.
The production will be filming in Macon and needs extras.
The dates of filming are Jan. 5, 7, and 8, and will pay a daily rate of $154, the TV station set.
Bill Marinella Casting seeks adults and possibly some children for the period film set in the Depression era, according to WGXA-TV.
“The Piano Lesson” takes place in mid-1930s Pittsburgh and “follows the Charles family’s dilemma of what to do with an heirloom piano hand-etched with the tribal and enslaved history of their ancestor,” WGXA said.
Washington’s son, Malcolm, is directing the movie and also co-wrote the adaptation of the play.
Crews began shooting scenes for the movie here in Atlanta last spring, but production came to a halt because of the writers’ and actors’ strikes.
