Film seeks hundreds of extras Sunday in Arlington

Here’s your chance for your “Seven Minutes” of fame.

The thriller movie by that name is seeking extras to fill the stands Sunday evening for a football game scene being shot at Haller Middle School in Arlington.

“Just show up. It is pretty much an open invite,” said Sean Straub of Experience Everett, the city’s contracted tourism service.

“A diverse crowd is pretty much what they are looking for. Grandparents, kids and everything between. What you’d expect for a football game.”

Guess who else will be there?

Leven Rambin, the leggy blonde who played Glimmer in “The Hunger Games,” and Australian heartthrob TV actor Luke Mitchell.

Rambin plays Mitchell’s cheerleader girlfriend in the movie produced by veteran director Rick Rosenthal. Other stars in “Seven Minutes” include Kris Kristofferson, Jason Ritter, Zane Holtz and Brandon Hardesty, but they won’t be at Sunday’s shoot.

The movie’s plot is about the heist of a mortgage broker’s stash of money by a young athlete who takes a wild turn after suffering a serious injury. Many scenes were shot in downtown Everett and around Snohomish County in May.

Scrimmaging on the Arlington field will be Everett High School and Cascade High School football teams. Cheerleaders and coaches from the rival schools will also be in Sunday’s shoot.

The game is the grand finale call for extras. Several hundred are needed to be in the stands.

Extras should arrive by 6:30 p.m. Sunday at the middle school stadium, 600 E. First St. The crowd scene will take several hours. Filming will continue until 5 a.m. Don’t worry. You don’t have to stay that long.

It’s an unpaid gig, but extras can enter a free raffle for numerous prizes. Food will be available for purchase. A deejay will keep the masses entertained when the cameras aren’t rolling.

Extras should wear red or blue, the two team colors. “If they could bring both colors, that would be ideal,” said Herman Esau, key assistant location manager.

Clothes with trademarked logos or artwork are not allowed.

Minors must be accompanied by an adult.

“It’s a controlled environment,” Esau said. “It is regimented. People have to be able to listen.”

School property rules apply: No drugs, alcohol or weapons are allowed. “No mayhem of any kind,” Esau said.

The movie is expected to be shown in theaters next year. For more information about the film, go to www.imdb.com/title/tt2828954.
