PROVIDENCE (WPRI) – Extras are wanted for the new Vinny Paz movie that is being filmed in Rhode Island.
Movie producers need thousands of people to fill up the Dunkin Donuts Center to film fight scenes. An open casting call was held on Saturday.
In the film, Miles Teller plays Vinny Paz, the world champion boxer and Rhode Island’s own living legend.
Lori Campbell is volunteering to help cast extras for the film, she says, “It’s an amazing project, a great story… Volunteering my time to work with the people here in Rhode Island and New England is outstanding.”
Fight scenes will be filmed at the Dunkin Donuts Center on Tuesday and Wednesday beginning at 8am. If you missed Saturday’s casting call, you can still register online.
