We've received a media release regarding extras casting for The Punisher Movie this weekend in Tampa...
Tampa, FL - If you've ever dreamed of being in the movies, here's your chance. Producers of The Punisher, the full-length feature film being shot on location in Tampa, will be conducting an open casting call for extras on Saturday, July 19 at The Florida Aquarium from 12:00 to 4:00 p.m. Parking is available at the Florida Aquarium lot or the Port Authority garage, both on Channelside Drive, for a nominal charge.
