Mark Wahlberg’s ‘Mile 22’ Open Casting Call in Atlanta

Mark Wahlberg’s new movie, Mile 22, is now casting actors, models, and talent to work on scenes filming in Atlanta, Georgia.

According to Project Casting, Central Casting, the extras casting company behind Mark Wahlberg’s new movie, is now hiring actors, stand-ins, child actors, and other film industry professionals to work on the movie.

“Producers are looking for men and women ages 18 and older to make up a fictional town for the movie,” Project Casting explains in the casting call. “Casting directors are seeking people to play Indonesian, Filipino, South American, Cambodian, and Mongolia. All actors will be paid background actors. Filming will shoot between late November through February in the ATL.”

It is important to note and understand Georgia’s growing film industry. Gov. Nathan Deal announced that Georgia filmed movies and TV shows generated an economic impact of nearly $10 billion during the fiscal year 2017. In fact, 320 feature film and TV productions shot in Georgia accounting for $2.7 billion in direct spending in the state.

“Georgia’s film industry supports thousands of jobs, boosts small business growth and expands offerings for tourists,” Deal said last July. “As one of the top places in the world for film, Georgia hosted a remarkable 320 film and television productions during the last fiscal year. These productions mean new economic opportunities and real investments in local communities. We are committed to further establishing Georgia as a top film destination and introducing film companies to the Camera Ready backdrops available across Georgia.”
