With Ben Kingsley in talks to play a villain in “Iron Man 3,” the casting crew on the flick is looking to fill out some smaller roles. A casting call has been posted for the shoot, which is going under the alias “Caged Head,” and some lucky extras who live in the Raleigh area are going to have a chance to join the flick.
So far Kingsley is the only new name attached to the project. Robert Downey Jr., Don Cheadle, Gwyneth Paltrow and Scarlett Johansson are all set to return to “Iron Man 3,” which Shane Black is directing. Filming is set to start later this month, so the extras are going to be cast over the weekend.
The full casting call as it was posted by the “Caged Heat” Facebook page reads as follows:
“FIRST CASTING CALL ANNOUNCED – Raleigh Casting Call for those interested in working on Caged Heat will be held Saturday April 14th, 10 am – 1 pm at Crabtree Valley Mall. (4325 Glenwood Ave). All interested in submitting must bring a curent non returnable snapshot.
“Casting call forms can be filled out the day of or will be available for download and printing on film office sites soon. Wilmington Casting Call will take place on Saturday April 21st. Stay tuned for more details to come.”
“Iron Man 3” is said to be based on Warren Ellis’s run on “Invincible Iron Man” called “Extremis.” The film is set for a May 3, 2013 release. We’ll next see Iron Man, Black Widow and Pepper Potts in “The Avengers,” due out May 4.
