ST. MARYS, Ga. – A Georgia casting agency is looking to hire extras for the sequel to Stephen King’s “The Shining” when it films in St. Marys on Monday.

The Warner Bros. feature film, “Doctor Sleep,” stars Ewan McGregor and Rebecca Ferguson. According to a casting call, Monday’s scene takes place during the daytime in a beach side community in 1980.

“We are casting a mix of people to be walking or sitting nearby our lead characters during a conversation,” the flyer from Atlanta-based Tammy Smith Casting said.
