A Chicago production company is looking for extras to be featured in an upcoming film starring Jamie Lee Curtis and Tika Sumpter.
Filming for CorradoMooncoin's newest film "The Pages," a “female-driven political thriller,” began June 19 in suburban Evanston and will continue through the end of July, the company announced.
The indie thriller is written and directed by Joe Chappelle, an executive producer for the hit NBC television series “Chicago Fire.”
It will star celebrity actresses including Curtis and Sumpter, who recently starred as Michell Obama in the feature film "Southside With You," as well as Ben Tavassoli.
"The Pages is a female driven story of obsession, betrayal and regret," the film company said in a press release.
The film is expected to bring a minimum of $300,000 to Evanston this summer, according to city manager Wally Bobkiewicz.
"We are so pleased to have the opportunity to make 'The Pages' in the diverse City of Evanston and in the great State of Illinois," Brett Hays, unit production manager, said in a statement. "We look forward to working with the people of Evanston, and appreciate the warm welcome and generous support we've recieved form Evanston city officials and local businesses on this exciting venture."
