‘Get On Up’, the James Brown biopic filming in Natchez, Mississippi and still looking for extras


Today Get On Up, the James Brown biopic, begins filming in Natchez, Mississippi and they are still looking for extras.

Executive producer Trish Hoffman said extras are still needed for several scenes, including a Vietnam scene that will be filmed at the Natchez-Adams County Airport next month.

“We really need a ton of extras for some of the concert sequences, and it’s been a real challenge to get the number we need for many of the scenes,” she said.

Chadwick Boseman, Dan Aykroyd, Jill Scott and Craig Robinson are set to star in the film.

Filming will take place in and around Natchez through the end of the year and then move to Jackson.
