'The Avengers' looking for 2,000 extras

CLEVELAND - Marvel Studios will hire more than 2,000 people to have bit parts in the new movie "The Avengers" when filmmakers begin shooting in August.

The production will be the largest feature film ever made in Ohio. The Greater Cleveland Film Commission has not yet released information about how to apply for an extra role, as that information will be available at a later date.

"The Avengers" will be filmed in various parts of the city over a two-month period. If you are interested in being a member of the crew for this film you should send a resume to Cleveland@cupber.com.

Cleveland area residents could receive anywhere from $50 to $100 dollars daily for their work on the film and will receive free meals.

The Avengers film is about a popular group of Marvel Comics superheroes and stars Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson and Samuel L. Jackson.

But if you miss out at being an extra in this film, you will have other chances because 10 other movies are to be filmed here soon.

The Greater Cleveland Film Commission said the city is becoming a prime location for Hollywood film producers.
