The wrestling movie “Chokeslam” is looking for extras. They need people on Thursday and Friday night to fill the bleachers at the Canada Centre at Evraz Place.

Call time for extras is 5:30 p.m. for both days, and people are asked to make themselves available until midnight. People with young children can leave earlier.

Wrestling match scenes will be filmed on these two nights featuring former WWE wrestlers Lance Storm and Harry Smith, son of the late British Bulldog.

The movie also features WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley, who wrestled as Mankind, Dude Love, and Cactus Jack in the 90’s.

“It’s been a great experience,” said Foley. “I think it’s going to make for a really entertaining movie, and I hope that people will come out and take the opportunity to come out on Thursday and Friday night and be part of it.”

Meals will be provided for extras, and High Impact Wrestling will be putting on matches between scenes on Friday.
