Film crew shooting in Hope in late July, looking for extras

‘A Christmas Tree Grows in Brooklyn’ is looking for extras for a local shoot July 20 to 31

A film crew is alighting in Hope for at least 11 days of shooting for a Christmas-themed film.

As with most films in production mode, the actual content of the film ‘A Christmas Tree Grows in Brooklyn’ is kept a closely guarded secret. However a write up searching for extras stated that the film is “a love story about a special tree, and a small town in Colorado.”

So Hope will be transformed into a U.S. town as it has been many times before starting in 1981 with the transformation into Hope, Liggett County in the film that put the town on the cinematic map – Rambo First Blood.

The production is looking for extras on various dates from July 20 through to the 31. Extras will be guaranteed four hours, yet should be prepared to work all day a notice states. The compensation is $15 per hour.

Those interested should send their picture, height, weight, age as well as a contact number and email address to ckp.casting@gmail.com.
