‘Hocus Pocus 2′ Filming Just 3 hours away – Apply To Be An Extra
The Halloween classic "Hocus Pocus" starring Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy is getting a sequel 30 years in the making. Bette Midler announced it on her Instagram page back in May 2020.
Filming is underway and it's less than three hours from the Capital Region in Providence, RI. I know it might seem like a long drive to just be an extra and hang out in the back of some scene that might, or might not make it into the final cut of the movie. If this new sequel is as big of a cult classic as the first one is...it's probably worth the drive.
Personally, I've seen Hocus Pocus once when my kids were younger and I thought it was just okay, and I never really got the hype. However, I've been told that I'm wrong and it's a great piece of cinema. I still disagree.
However, if you'd like a chance to be an extra and maybe see these three incredibly talented actresses do their thing, you should apply to be an extra.
Kendall Cooper Casting is handling the casting of extras that will be used in filming in Providence and the surrounding area from October through December. Production will generally take place Monday through Friday, but each day can run 12 hours or more.
Actors can apply through Kendall Cooper Casting. The company will contact people directly if they are chosen.
