'Sinister 2' casting extras in Chicago

Trailer for Sinister

“Sinister 2” needs kids and teenagers to serve as extras when the sequel begins filming in the Chicago area next month. Joan Philo Casting is looking for 7-18 years old of all shapes and sizes and an overweight male 12-15 years old, according to Facebook.com/Sinister2Extras.

But before you sign up little Johnny, there are a few things you should know.

The original “Sinister” was a rated R horror film that involved hangings and the terrifying Mr. Boogie. And as the Facebook page pointed out, extras in the sequel may be required to act in scary scenes that are “graphic in nature” and involve “blood and disturbing themes.” So if your kid is squeamish or scares easily and you don’t feel like paying for their therapy, this probably isn’t a good fit.

“Sinister 2” is also looking for men and women in their 30s or 40s to play parents for one or two day scenes -- specifically Caucasian model types, Caucasian church-going types and Latino, Asian or Middle Eastern working class types. If you don’t fall under any of those categories, the film needs extras 6-80 years old of all ethnicities and body types. In other words, they’re not picky.

The Facebook page said filming will take place Aug. 18 through the end of September in Grant Park, Kankakee and St. Anne.
