Rochester (WSYR-TV) – More than 300 producers and film crew members from Columbia Pictures will be in downtown Rochester filming scenes for the upcoming movie “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.” And, if you’ve ever dreamed of being in a movie, now’s your chance.

The production team is looking for extras. For consideration, send your name, a photo of yourself, the year, make, and model of your car, and your contact information to rochester@gwcnyc.com.

The crew will be filming action sequences that include car chases and other special effects on Main Street, between East Avenue and South Plymouth Avenue, beginning on Tuesday, April 30 between the hours of 6 a.m. and 9 a.m.

Filming will continue through May 9.

Main Street traffic – from East Avenue to South Plymouth Avenue – will be affected and closures will be in place depending on the particular filming needs for each day. As the city learns more from the production team they’ll make that information available.

Bus routes, too, will also be affected, city officials said. The Rochester Genesee Regional Transportation Authority will have those details posted on their website at: www.rgrta.com.
