Extras are needed for a Val Kilmer movie shooting in Coachella

Your dream of being in a movie with Iceman is about to come true.

And while I don’t think the people behind the film “Pay Dirt” are going to ask if you feel the need, the need for speed, they are looking for people to act as extras in the movie which, even though it is still filming, already has a poster.

So what, exactly, are the details? Well, here they are direct from the press release:

Coachella Valley Community members are being asked to participate and fill downtown Coachella as background extras in a Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) parade scene in the new feature film, Pay Dirt, starring Val Kilmer (Tombstone, Top Gun, The Doors) and Luke Goss (Hellboy II: The Golden Army, Blade II).

 

People of all ages should arrive wearing “Day of the Dead” festive face paint to bring to life the traditional celebration. Masks, props and other costumes are welcome.

 

Extras will meet at City Hall in Coachella at 5 p.m. on Saturday, December 21st where filming will take place from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on 6th street in between Grapefruit Blvd. and Vine Street.

 

The parade scene is in collaboration with Mayor Steven Hernandez of the city of Coachella as well as Raices Cultura, a non-profit that hosts the annual Run with Los Muertos 5k, bringing together thousands to celebrate the cultural tradition.

 

This is the fifth feature film hometown movie director, Christian Sesma, has filmed in the Coachella Valley. Sesma and Mike Hatton are both producers on the film and both have ties to the Coachella Valley. Sesma, born and raised in the Coachella Valley, is most known for his work on Vigilante Diaries & The Night Crew, and Hatton most notably for his role in the Oscar Award winning film, Green Book.

There’s no word on any money or even snacks or, well, anything for your work, but, hey, you can be that person in the background in that scene with Doc Holliday and *checks notes* Luke Gross as they attempt to bury the past and find the cash…hell, maybe you will find the cash before they do…and wouldn’t that be a hell of a plot twist.
