Here is your chance to be in a big time movie. One that everyone has been waiting for! Once in a lifetime. The movie is Rocky VI. Okay I hyped it too much. Really, I know it's not THAT big of a movie. However you've probably heard of Rocky I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, and VIII before. All bad counting aside, I was shocked to hear they were making Rocky VI. If they're making a sixth movie in a series it probably means they need the money and Stallone needs a movie role. Hello Police Academy 7??
Here are the details. They're filming in Las Vegas December 4-8th. It's a climatic fight scene between Rocky and Antonio Tarver. If this is a movie then I'm going to guess he beats the crap out of Antonio. Antonio's agent must have negotiated a sweet deal to go from beating Roy Jones Jr. to losing to a human Philly cheese steak. I'm not totally mocking it because I've always wanted to be an extra in a movie. If I were in Las Vegas I would definitely go for a day. Judging from the websites sounds like they're really needing people to show up.
Here are a couple of the quotes from the website
Come Join Us on the Film Set of this Now in Production. The Amazing Rocky sequel, ROCKY BALBOA! With All The Stars & Film Fun You Can Handle.
Fun? Not all fun maybe. You have to be there from 9am-6pm straight. What they don't say is that being an extra in a movie means waiting around for hours and hours for a little bit of action so bring a book or something to do…honestly.
Joining us on the set will be the Director, Actors, Extras, Cameramen, Makeup Artists, Special Effects and Stunt Men.
Well duh! I hope all those people are there! What kind of freaking movie is it if they're not??
