Jennifer Lopez will play a reporter in "Parker" opposite Jason Statham
AB Media Publishing, LLC
The thriller feature film "Parker" starring Jennifer Lopez and Jason Statham, is seeking more than 200 Miami area locals to work as background extras during three days of shooting at the The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota, Miami. The scene to be shot is a fundraising event for the very wealthy, supposedly taking place in Palm Beach. The casting agents are in need of “elegant guests” — 100 women and 100 men — as well as others to play catering staff, musicians, security guards, police officers and firemen.
Academy Award winner Taylor Hackford will direct the film from an adapted screenplay written by John J. McLaughlin. The screenplay is based on Donald Westlake’s crime novel “Flashfire". Hackford's producing and/or directorial credits include "An Officer and a Gentleman," "Against All Odds," "White Nights," "La Bamba," "Everybody's All-American," "The Devil's Advocate," "Ray," and "Love Ranch". He is also attached to direct the upcoming Foxxhole Productions 2012 Mike Tyson Biopic starring Jamie Foxx as Mike Tyson.
Sidney Kimmel is producing for Kimmel International, Steve Chasman is producing for Current Entertainment, Les Alexander will produce for Alexander, Enright & Associates, and director Taylor Hackford will co-produce. “Parker” is scheduled to be released on October 12, 2012.
