“The Nana Project” directed by Robin Givens will be filmed in Louisville

Givens is set to film “The Nana Project” with Oscar-winning actress Mercedes Ruehl from May 18 and is on the lookout for extras.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — May has been quite a busy month for Kentucky, especially for the city of Louisville.

Buzz is still in the air from all the celebrity sightings during the Kentucky Derby weekend and other films filming in the state featuring major Hollywood stars.

Actress Robin Givens is expected to return to the area to shoot another film, according to her team.

Her new movie, “The Nana Project” will be shot in the Louisville area.

The story is set in a nursing home with a “feisty chess master” played by Oscar winner Mercedes Ruehl.

Her character Helen “Nana” Lewis has two estranged grandsons Andrew and Cody who will be played by Nolan Gould and Will Peltz.

The family will be going on a road trip to support Nana’s ascent to the state championships.

Alexis Leggett Casting is looking for paid extras.

They are set to begin filming on May 18 and will be here until June 4.

We heard that the shooting was planned in another city, but I learned that Louisville is a good place.

It could have come from the big response that was given to “The Cookout” which was also filmed in Louisville and directed by Givens.

Submission instructions can be found by clicking here:

You must be fully vaccinated for this project. You must provide proof of vaccination and take a mandatory COVID-19 test upon arrival on the day of your shoot.

If you get a role in this movie, let me know.
