HUNDREDS of extras are sought for a film being shot in Kerry this summer, featuring Oscar-winning actress Olivia Colman, star of ‘The Favourite’ and ‘The Crown’.

‘Joyride’, written by Tralee native Ailbhe Keoghan and directed by Emmy-award winning director Emer Reynolds, will be filmed in Tralee and other locations in the county in June and July.

They are looking for hundreds of extras of every age, gender and look. They are also looking for a mother to breastfeed on camera and newborn twins. Successful applicants will spend up to a couple of days on set with early starts and late finishes.

Extras will also need to have their own transport and locations are a maximum of 40km from Tralee.

Applicants must include two current, good quality photos which include a passport style head shot and a long portrait shot showing their full body length in their application. Selfies are not acceptable and there must be no clutter in the background. Applications can be made by clicking here.

‘Joyride’ is described as a foul-mouthed feelgood fairytale, where Olivia Colman’s character, Joy, finds herself in a stolen car with a 13 year old boy racer and a new-born baby.
