Casting extras for new movie in Albuquerque and Santa Fe

Ric Roman Waugh’s thriller “Shot Caller” begins production in NM this month and is seeking to cast hundreds of background extras for the film.

The project begins filming on May 26 around the Santa Fe and Albuquerque NM areas.

• Robert Baxter casting is seeking male extras to play inmate types, prison guards, police, prison staff and more in the area.

“Shot Caller” follows a newly released prison gangster who’s forced by prison gang leaders to participate in a brutal scheme against a rival gang.
According to the film’s IMDB page, the project is being produced by Bold Films, Participant Media and Relativity Studios. Bold’s Gary Michael Walters will executive produce with Participant’s Jeff Skoll. A recent article in Variety stated that Ric Roman Waught actually went undercover as a volunteer parole agent in California to research what happens behind prison walls for the film. In the article, Waught also commented that “No one knew I was a filmmaker… they just saw me as a rookie cop, so nothing was censored. What I quickly learned is the guards might control the doors and gates, but the gangs run the prisons… and they run the streets as well, directly from prison. ‘Shot Caller’ is an authentic look at our prison gangs and the law enforcement professionals who guard them inside prison walls.”

SHOT CALLER TELLS THE STORY OF A NEWLY RELEASED PRISON GANGSTER WHO IS FORCED BY THE LEADERS OF HIS GANG TO ORCHESTRATE A MAJOR CRIME WITH A BRUTAL RIVAL GANG ON THE STREETS OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA.
