'Bandit' starring Mel Gibson and Josh Duhamel has spent the past week filming in Valdosta, as seen here. The movie is scheduled to film this week in Tifton.

TIFTON — “Bandit” is casting extras and Tifton residents — or their cars — have an opportunity to be seen on the silver screen.

Historic Downtown Tifton posted Wednesday afternoon on Facebook that filming begins Friday, June 18, in Tifton and extras dressed in 1980s style are needed. In addition to human extras, “Bandit” is seeking people with 1980s and earlier vehicles.

Those interested in becoming extras can email, with a photo of themselves and contact information.

Variety describes “Bandit” as being an action thriller starring Mel Gibson, Elisha Cuthbert and Josh Duhamel, with Duhamel as a prison escapee who sets up a new life in Canada, but continues committing crimes.

Filming has been taking place in Thomasville, Moultrie and Valdosta.
