Darlene Sweeney, owner of Salisbury’s WSM Talent Agency, said hiring the extras has gone to Boston Casting. Extras do get paid, she said, “but not a lot.”
“Extras usually get paid about minimum wage, but movie companies do pay for overtime when it kicks in,” Sweeney said.
Selectman Fred Knowles asked Fitzgerald if he were looking at other locations, should Salisbury not work out for them.
“No, I don’t have a plan B, though we could come up with something if we had to,” said Fitzgerald, an 18-year veteran location manager. “(Salisbury) has been the director’s favorite from the get-go.”
