The casting call was originally located in a Tulsa hotel, but Freihofer Casting decided to move the event because the mall offered more parking and accessibility.

"We want to ensure a fun, positive, comfortable experience for everyone involved, and our friends at the Promenade Mall were happy to accommodate us," said Oklahoma Casting Director Chris Freihofer.

The film will begin shooting in Oklahoma in late September. Freihofer says the film will need a lot of extras of all ages and types, with the exception of babies and toddlers.
