New Casting Call for Channing Tatum’s ‘Eagle of the Ninth’

Jenna Dewan recently visited Channing Tatum on the set of his Kevin MacDonald directed Roman epic, 'The Eagle of the Ninth' and tweeted that fans "will really love this movie". If you want to see first hand what Jenna's all excited about, you may just want to make a beeline to Scotland this weekend.

Sweet on Sigma Films is reporting via the UK's Press and Journal that 'The Eagle of the Ninth (which is currently filming on the outskirts of Budapest, Hungary) is holding a casting call for extras tomorrow, Saturday, September 12, 2009.

The event will be conducted by Des Hamilton Casting, and they're looking for local men between the ages of 16 and 45 and woman between the ages of 16 and 25 to appear in the feature film.

The casting call will be held at the MacPhail Centre in Ullapool, Scotland from 10am - 4pm and anyone interested should be prepared to provide a photo and contact details, which will be sent to the production team.

'The Eagle of the Ninth' is based on the best-selling, classic 1954 teen novel by Rosemary Sutcliff, and is set in the dangerous world of second-century Britain.

In 140 AD, twenty years after the unexplained disappearance of the entire Ninth Legion in the mountains of Scotland, young centurion Marcus Aquila (played by Channing) arrives from Rome to solve the mystery and restore the reputation of his father, the commander of the Ninth.

Accompanied only by his British slave Esca (Jamie Bell), Marcus sets out across Hadrian's Wall into the uncharted highlands of Caledonia - to confront its savage tribes, make peace with his father's memory, and retrieve the lost legion's golden emblem, the Eagle of the Ninth. Donald Sutherland portrays Marcus' uncle Aquila, who has retired in Britain; Mark Strong is cast as Guern, an ex-soldier who holds crucial information about the Ninth.

'The Eagle of the Ninth' is scheduled to hit theaters some time in 2010!!!

Good luck to any of you that plan on attending the casting!
