What: Movie tryouts for Grudge Match
Who: Coulon Casting
Where: POWER MMA at 900 Terry Parkway in Terrytown, LA
Coulon Casting will be holding tryouts tonight at POWER MMA in Terrytown, Louisiana for a major movie production to be filmed in New Orleans called Grudge Match. Coulon Casting representatives says that it will pay extras up to $150 per day and that some other small parts are available. Grudge Match stars Sylverter Stallone and Robert Di Niro.
Coulon Casting representatives say that they will be looking for extras to "be part of the fighter's entourage around a cage" as well as the part for a "referee" in the match. Carlos Mena of POWER MMA said, "MMA is an entertainment sport, this is a great way for anyone involved in the sport who has the right look to get a part in the movies."
New Orleans and the state of Louisiana have become home to several large movie productions in the past few years, due in large part to tax incentives put in place by the state legislature. Several other MMA, Boxing, and Fighter oriented movies have filmed in the area including Never Back Down 2, the Expendables (which starred Randy Couture), and "the Fighter."
