BUDDING actors are being asked to attend auditions in Glasgow later this week as agents scout for extras for a new Netflix drama about Robert the Bruce.  

The Outlaw King will be directed by Perthshire-born filmmaker David MacKenzie, the first Scot to be nominated for a Best Picture Oscar.

Star Trek and Into the Woods actor Chris Pine has signed on to play the Scottish King.

Shooting begins at undisclosed locations in Scotland next month.

Agencies Key Casting and We Are POP are on the look-out for “good beards” and have asked men not to trim their hair before they arrive.

Potential extras are advised to wear dark clothing, no white. They must be over 16 and have valid ID, showing they are eligible to work in the UK.

 Auditions begin at Kelvinhall, Argyle Street, on Friday, July 14 from 1pm to 9.30pm and from 9am to 4.30pm the following day.

 

The movie is described as “a true David and Goliath story of how the great 14th Century Scottish ‘Outlaw King’ Robert the Bruce used cunning and bravery to defeat and repel the much larger and better equipped occupying English army.”

It will also star Hell of High Water actor Ben Foster as James Douglas, a trusted ally of Robert the Bruce.

The new feature is being produced for Netlix by Glasgow-based Sigma Films.
