Extra Casting Call for Gus Van Sant film 'Restless' in Portland

The feature film 'Restless' extras casting directors are seeking young people ages 18-25 for a "Haunted House Party" scene being filmed on Saturday, November 14, 2009.

If you have a photo of yourself taken on the actual Halloween night dressed in costume, send it, along with a phone number, email, and a description of what you dressed up as. If it’s a group photo please specify who you are. If you have no photos, we request that you redress in your costume, have one taken, and send it. They'll have you bring your costume out for filming, so be sure to have it.

This is for their wardrobe department and very important! Please also confirm that you are available November 14, 2009. From there, they will be in contact to inform you of all the information you’ll need for the shoot. Participants will be paid. Please send info to:

This is for people in the Portland, Oregon area only.
