Based on the book by the same name, JESUS REVOLUTION tells the story of a young Greg Laurie (Joel Courtney) being raised by his struggling mother, Charlene (Kimberly Williams-Paisley) in the 1970s. Laurie and a sea of young people descend on sunny Southern California to redefine truth through all means of liberation. Inadvertently, Laurie meets Lonnie Frisbee (Jonathan Roumie), a charismatic hippie-street-preacher, and Pastor Chuck Smith (Kelsey Grammer) who have thrown open the doors of Smith’s languishing church to a stream of wandering youth. What unfolds becomes the greatest spiritual awakening in American history. Rock and roll, newfound love, and a twist of faith lead to a JESUS REVOLUTION that turns one counterculture movement into a revival that changes the world.
Filming begins in March 2022 in Mobile, Ala. and then in April in Los Angeles. We will need extras multiple times throughout that window. For what scenes, you might be wondering? Recreating mass baptisms at Pirates Cove, huge congregational services at Calvary Chapel and the historic Calvary tent, hippie gatherings, and many other scenes.
So between March and April, 2022, we are building an army of authentic looking 1960s’ people. And YOU just might be one of the people we use!
