'Comeback' needs to fill the stands

I just got this notice from "Comeback" ("Untitled Ice Cube Movie"). On March 6 and March 7, the flick will need a whole lot of extras to fill the stands for a climatic football scene in the Pop Warner Super Bowl.

Here's the press release verbiage: "The feature film 'Comeback,' shooting in Minden and Shreveport since Dec. 17 and starring Ice Cube and Keke Palmer, among other major stars, and directed by Fred Durst, needs extras for the production’s climactic final scenes shooting in early March. The scenes depict a thrilling football matchup in the Pop Warner Super Bowl.

"In addition to getting a firsthand look at moviemaking, participants will be eligible for prizes, including autographed merchandise and High-Definition televisions.

"'Comeback' is based on the true story of a poor Illinois town that comes together behind the local Pop Warner football team and their unlikely quarterback, Jasmine Plummer (Keke Palmer), the first female in Pop Warner's history. Under the tutelage of her uncle Curtis (Ice Cube), a former high school football star, Jasmine leads her team, the Minden Browns, to the Pop Warner Super Bowl and inspires the town of Minden, Illinois to reclaim some of its former glory. “Comeback” is slated for a July 2008 release."
