Extras needed for Mt. Pleasant filming of ‘Kecksburg’ UFO movie
Extras are needed in Mt. Pleasant on Oct. 6 for filming of “Kecksburg,” a fiction-based-on-fact account of the 1965 UFO incident.
The movie is a project of Cody Knotts, a native of Taylorstown, Washington County, currently living in New York, whose film production company, Principalities of Darkness, is producing “Kecksburg.” It was written and is being directed by Knotts.
Key scenes were filmed April 10-12 in southwestern Pennsylvania and Morgantown, W.Va., using more than 70 local background actors.
South African actor Scot Cooper is portraying local radio reporter John Murphy, one of the first to arrive on the scene of the purported UFO landing, while Knott’s wife Emily Lapisardi has a role as First Lady Lady Bird Johnson.
Cooper’s film roles include “Maze Runner: The Death Cure,” while his television credits include “American Monster” and “Homeland.”
The movie is tentatively set for a September 2019 premiere in The Palace Theatre in Greensburg.
