M. Night Shyamalan is finally filming the movie he's been waiting 17 years to create.
The Penn Valley native, rejuvenated by the success of "Split," embarked earlier this month on "Glass," a film that will weave together the narratives of "Unbreakable" (2000) and "Split."
Starting day 10 of #Glass. Exhausted, excited. At times I get emotional seeing all these characters together in one film.— M. Night Shyamalan (@MNightShyamalan) October 13, 2017
That's why we've been seeing Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson around and about in Philadelphia lately.
As is custom for Shyamalan, the greater Philadelphia area will appear in locations throughout "Glass," bringing film jobs to Pennsylvania.
Heery Loftus Casting, based in Philadelphia, posted a call on Tuesday for a male actor to serve as a stand-in when Shyamalan's crew shoots in Allentown from Oct. 30 through Nov. 17.
The conditions? You have to be white, 6 feet tall, between 30-40 years old and either bald or balding. You can be union or non-union, but you have to possess these physical characteristics.
By the sound of it, whoever gets this gig will be doing some dirty work for either Bruce Willis or James McAvoy.
Filming is scheduled to take place at a closed set inside the former Allentown State Hospital, a mental health facility that operated from the time of its construction in 1912 until its closure in 2010.
Those interested in the position are asked to send a photo and a phone number to firstname.lastname@example.org with "ALLENTOWN stand in" as the subject.
