CLEVELAND (WJW) — Last chance for extras! Angela Boehm Casting says they are looking to fill openings for two movies being shot in Cleveland.

The casting company says they have many openings to fill in the Russo Brothers film, Cherry, and the Warner Bros. film Untitled Fred Hampton Project.  Both have wrap dates in December.

Cherry is based on a true story and follows an Army medic struggling with PTSD after his return from Iraq and his opioid addiction. The man spends time as a bank robber to support his addiction.

Cherry is the first movie directed by the Russo brothers since their six-year run with Marvel. The movie, which is also set in Cleveland, features Spider-Man star Tom Holland, and Ciara Bravo.

Untitled Fred Hampton Project is also based on true events. It follows the story of Fred Hampton, the outspoken leader of the Chicago Black Panther party and his formation of the Rainbow Coalition in the late 1960s. It shows how unlikely groups unite as allies to fight racism and obtain civil rights among all the city’s ethnic groups.

Men of all ethnicities are encouraged to apply to both films.  No previous acting or on-camera experience is necessary.
