Casting director Chris Freihofer said they don't need toddlers or babies, but everyone else is welcome to apply. Extras will be paid to appear in the film.

"We will ask everyone to provide us with contact information and clothing sizes, and we will take everyone's pictures. The whole process should take less than 10 minutes," he said.

Freihofer added it will save time if everyone knows their clothing sizes in advance.

Extras will be used throughout the filming. Those selected will be notified a day or two before they are needed, and should expect to spend the whole day on set.
