Seeking: paid extras for '50 to 1,' the story of 2009 Derby winner Mine That Bir

Back in August, we learned that the story of 2009 Kentucky Derby winner Mine That Bird is being produced into a feature film called Wild Ride. First things first: the title has been changed to 50 to 1. Secondly: there is currently an open casting call for paid extras. Yes: paid.

Shooting with extras will take place this month on the 12th and 13th, and the 16th through 18th. Extras are not required to be available all of these days – part of the application process includes indicating availability. Rates are $8.00 per hour for the first eight hours of shooting each day, $12.00 for “overtime.”

I'm a little late in getting this information out to interested parties, and for that I apologize – casting is ongoing, but prospective participants have until tomorrow to apply. To do so, got to Heyman Talent at 1205 E. Washington Street, suite 107. Application is open today until 5:00 and tomorrow, Tuesday, from 10:00 am To 3:00 pm. Queries can be sent to
