Extras are needed for a new production set to begin Sunday in Covington and throughout Newton County and Conyers.

“Operator” will be filming July 9-August 1 and needs extras and production interns on various days during the shoot, according to Taylor Owenby, one of the movie’s producers and a Covington native. He said four stars from LA are in the movie, although their names are being kept out of the press for now.

Owenby said he wants to hire as many locals as possible before taking extras from a larger casting call in Atlanta. He said he will need as many as 43 extras on the busiest days and will hire 15 people for the Sunday-Thursday schedule.

Those interested should be “clean-cut adults of all types” to be cast as call center workers, street passerby and school children.

Filming will also take place in Mansfield, Porterdale and Conyers. A follow-up story will highlight filming and movie details.

As of now, no streets will be closed during filming.
