If you have aspirations of being on the big screen in a major motion picture, head down Highway 28 later this week.
While you may not land a role that would ever be considered for an Oscar, there is an opportunity to be part of the Hollywood experience happening nearby.
The sequel to last year’s blockbuster Stephen King’s “It” is in the works, and (like the original) the town of Port Hope will be turned into Derry (Maine) for the shooting of scenes.
Third Act Productions is holding a job fair for the sequel this Friday (June 22) in Port Hope.
“Largo” is the working title for the It sequel — and this job fair will run from 2 to 6 this Friday at the old Canadian Tire Store (on Robertson St) in Port Hope.
In addition to extras, the production company is looking for location support personnel and security.
As for the sequel, it apparently takes place 27 years after the events of the first film. Members of The Losers Club have grown up and moved away — until a devastating phone call brings them back to Derry to face their nemesis.
Bill Skarsgård will reprise his role as Pennywise.
The It sequel will be released in theatres on September 6, of 2019.
