Sylvester Stallone is filming a movie in Savannah. Here’s what we know about it

Editor’s note: CDC Extras Savannah says it has finished casting extras for “Backtrace” as of Wednesday morning. Visit the casting agency’s Facebook page for more information.


A movie starring Sylvester Stallone and Matthew Modine is being filmed in Savannah, and extras were needed for scenes this weekend.

Saturday is the last day of filming, according to a post on the Facebook page for CDC Extras Savannah, which was casting extras for “Backtrace.”

The movie will tell the story of the lone-surviving thief of a violent armored car robbery after he is sprung from a high security facility and administered an experimental drug, according to IMDB.

The website says the movie also will star Meadow Williams, Ryan Guzman, Christopher McDonald and Colin Egglesfield, among others.

Several of the actors have posted photos from the set on social media.

“#Savannah is too beautiful to capture in a photo. #lovely kind people,” Modine captioned an Instagram photo of the twin spires of the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist.

The casting agency was looking for “attractive” men ages 20-60 of all ethnicities to portray hotel guests on Saturday. All women’s roles for the scene were cast earlier.

Filming will take place on Hutchinson Island and will be early and all day Saturday, the casting notice says.

The agency also was looking for “two males to play dead bodies” for Wednesday.

All roles had been cast as of Wednesday morning, said Chad Darnell with CDC Extras Savannah.
