Casting call Thursday for Western being filmed at Old Tucson

Wanna be in a movie? Freewill Films is looking for 40 to 50 extras to appear in "To Kill A Memory," a period Western that will be filmed at Old Tucson Studios May 20-21 and 31. Additional filming will be at Old Tucson's sister studio Mescal and on open ranch land in Southern Arizona between May 22 and 30.


  Shooting begins this weekend at the Territorial Prison in Yuma, said the film's producer Dustin Rikert, who lives in Arizona.


  "To Kill A Memory" will star Kix Brooks of Brooks & Dunn fame as Duke Donovan, a notorious lawman turned ringleader of a band of bank robbers. Donovan pulled off one of the most famous heists of the 1890s, dubbed "The Mid-Day Massacre."


  The film traces 1920s journalist Jesse Helms's (Andrew Walker) journey to uncover the truth behind the heist, which he discovers is not as it might appear. 

 The film also stars Ernie Hudson, Sydney Penny, Timothy Murphy, Abraham Benrubi, William Shockley, Brent Briscoe, Ronnie Blevens and Paul McCarthy Boyington.


  If you want to be in the film as a volunteer background extra, show up at Old Tucson Studios, 201 S. Kinney Road, between 4 and 5 p.m. Thursday dressed in 1890s period costumes. Extras will be fed during the filming, but will not be paid.
