Chance to appear in Meryl Streep's new film project

By Helen William

Would-be screen stars are getting the chance to appear in a film with Oscar-winner Meryl Steep.

Stephen Frears, who directed The Queen and High Fidelity, is looking for extras in London for his new biopic of 1940s New York heiress and socialite Florence Foster Jenkins, who was famous for being a terrible opera singer.

There is "no experience necessary", according to recruitment firm Universal Extras.

Filming is set to take place from May through to July in London. Anyone who is interested is urged to attend St Paul's Church in Hammersmith, west London, on April 11, between 10am and 5pm.

Both men and women are wanted but they must be over 16 and entitled to work in the UK.
