Marvel Studios casting call for San Francisco and Atlanta talent

The Marvel Studios superhero film Ant-Man is now in production and is seeking people to work as fully paid extras and featured background actors.

Marvel Studios and Walt Disney Pictures in association with Pym Particles Productions and Big Talk Productions are now shooting the feature film Ant Man in San Francisco, CA and will soon move production to Atlanta, GA. An open casting call for extras took place on August 16, 2014 in Atlanta, and now a casting call has been sent out in San Francisco, CA. Talent who missed the Atlanta open casting call can still register for extra work. Film crew members can submit resumes for work in Atlanta or San Francisco. The details are posted below.

The story line for Ant-Man is being kept under wraps by the studio, however Production Weekly has a general story described as “Biochemist Dr. Hank Pym uses his latest discovery, a group of subatomic particles, to create a size-altering formula. Though his first self-test goes awry, he develops an instrument that helps him communicate with and control insects.” Ant-Man is being made as a stand-alone film that will fit into to the larger continuity of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Starring in Ant-Man is Screen Actors Guild Awards nominee Paul Rudd as Scott Lang / Ant-Man. Rudd recently starred in the Lionsgate feature film They Came Together, and is set to star opposite Kristen Wiig and Topher Grace in Gotham Group’s film Bobby Blue Sky. Also starring in Ant-Man is Golden Globe Award Nominee Evangeline Lilly, Academy Award winner Michael Douglas, and Screen Actors Guild Award winner Michael Peña.

CableACE Awards nominee Peyton Reed will direct Ant-Man from a screenplay written by Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari. Producers are Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, and Brad Winderbaum. Additional filming will take place in San Francisco. Ant-Man will hit theaters July 17, 2015.
