‘USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage’ Now Casting Extras

Holly Bissonnette| May 19, 2015

 

New feature film USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage, starring Nicolas Cage, is in works, and they want to cast extras for the production of an upcoming scene.

Set in July of 1945, Cage will portray Capt. Charles Butler McVay, the captain of USS Indianapolis—the ship used to deliver components of the first atomic bombs. They were ambushed while sailing through the South Pacific. The torpedo that hit the vessel of 1,196 crew members caused it to rapidly sink, killing approximately 300 people. The remaining crew gradually diminished by numbers as they waited for a rescue operation. The massive death toll was a result of exposure, dehydration, saltwater poisoning, and shark attacks. At the end, only 317 sailors survived, including Capt. McVay who was court-martialed in his return and was only absolved half a century after the incident.

In line with the production of the film, they are seeking extras to work on the scenes.

Actors are also needed for specific roles such as marines, officers, and admirals, while they also want to cast women and children for various parts.
