The Denzel Washington film "Flight" will be filming one of the movie's key scenes at Green Valley Farms on U.S. Highway 278 in Covington on Oct. 11.

Paid extras of all ages, types and ethnicities are needed to work in the Atlanta area in mid-October. Interested applicants can email a recent photo to and include the following information: name, phone number, age, height, weight, clothing sizes, shoe size, pets they own and the color, make and model of their vehicle.

The pay is the standard $8 per hour, with overtime pay available after eight hours of filming.

The film follows the story of Whip, a commercial airline pilot with a substance abuse problem, who pulls off the heroic feat of landing a plane after its engine fails, saving 98 lives on a flight carrying 106 people.

"While the world begs to embrace him as a true American Hero, the everyman struggles with this label as he is forced to hold up to the scrutiny of an investigation that brings into question his behavior the night before the doomed flight," according to Paramount Pictures official description.

Newton County Tourism Director Clara Deemer said the scene filmed at Green Valley Farms will involve the plane knocking off the steeple of a church, which the crew will build on site. The director and producer recently took a helicopter flight over the area and simulated swooping down over the area.

The film will be directed by Robert Zemeckis, who also directed "Castaway," "Forest Gump" and "Back To The Future." The film is also expected to star Don Cheadle, Bruce Greenwood and Kelly Reilly.
