Hollywood actress Cate Blanchett will be in Brean, near Burnham-On-Sea, this week to film a brand new blockbuster movie – and producers appealed for local people to come forward to star as extras.

The cast and crew of a new film called The Golden Age will be filming on Brean Beach throughout Tuesday (June 6th) and they are appealing for local men to be extras.

The new movie will be a follow-up to the smash hit Elizabeth.

A spokesperson for the film told Burnham-On-Sea.com: “We need 250 local men to take part. They’ll be given a simple costume to wear and will need to be available from mid-day onwards on Tuesday.”

“Meals will be provided and there are also prizes to be won at the end of the day.”

The chance to register has now gone as the movie has now been shot.

The movie will be an exploration of the relationship between Elizabeth I (Blanchett) and the adventurer Sir Walter Raleigh in a multi-million dollar sequel to her Oscar-nominated 1998 film Elizabeth.
