“…It is that time again for all our male extras. There are several big projects coming for men with beards, so please start growing out those beards again and register at www.egcasting.com with updated or new profiles. There will be lots of work for those guys with beards. Can’t announce yet,” – Elizabeth Gabel

After escaping an ICE raid, Noemi tries to purchase a black-market “documents bundle” so that she can continue to work and send money home to her sick father. The problem? The bundle costs $500. In order to raise the money, Noemi starts working as a “fantasy maid”. Things quickly get out of hand, however, and Noemi must decide what’s more important—her dignity or the money.

PABLO: Must appear to be 30-35. Hispanic, medium built, tattoos preferable. Happy demeanor. Must be fluent in Spanish (no English dialogue). Noemi goes to Pablo for a social security card. Pablo wants to help her, but he can’t shift the price. Instead, he offers her a job.

ANNE: Must appear to be 35-40. Caucasian, blonde, tall. (Mark’s wife) Anne is trying to make this rough patch with Mark work. She’s afraid that Mark has become bored with her, so she orders a Fantasy Maid for him to “spice up” the relationship. Native English speaker.

WWE Lionsgate now filming Condemned 2 Desert Prey in New Mexico

WWE Studios and Lionsgate team up again on ‘The Condemned 2: Desert Prey’:
WWE.COM

Lionsgate, the premier next-generation global content leader, and WWE Studios have announced the production of “The Condemned 2: Desert Prey,” (working title), which extends the long-standing partnership between the two studios.

Roel Reiné (“Death Race: Inferno,” “The Scorpion King 3: Battle for Redemption”) is set to direct with WWE Superstar Randy Orton attached to star. “The Condemned 2” marks Reiné’s and Orton’s second film together after the successful release of “12 Rounds 2: Reloaded.” Alan McElroy (“The Marine 4: Moving Target”) wrote the script.

“The Condemned 2” follows a former bounty hunter (Orton) who soon finds himself on the run as part of a newly revamped, high-stakes and deadly Condemned tournament.

“We’re thrilled to be continuing ‘The Condemned’ franchise with Randy, Roel and our terrific partners at Lionsgate,” said Michael Luisi, WWE Studios President.

WWE Studios will leverage its extensive multi-platform reach to promote the film.

“We are excited to be reteaming with WWE on “The Condemned 2,” after such a positive experience on the original film,” said Lionsgate Co-Chief Operating Officer and Motion Picture Group President Steve Beeks. “The combination of their brand marketing capabilities, creativity and deep lineup of dynamic onscreen talent result in a powerful partnership.”

WWE Studios and Lionsgate previously collaborated on “The Condemned,” “See No Evil” and “Leprechaun: Origins,” as well the just-released “See No Evil 2.” In 2015, the two studios will release the first two installments of their “Action Six-Pack” series: “Vendetta,” directed by The Soska Sisters (“See No Evil 2”) and starring WWE Superstar Paul “Big Show” Wight, as well as “Lockdown,” directed by Stephen Reynolds (“Tomb Raider Ascension”) and starring WWE Superstar Dean Ambrose.

Bradley Buchanan, SVP of Business Affairs, negotiated the deal on behalf of WWE Studios, and Wendy Jaffe, EVP of Business & Legal Affairs, negotiated the deal on behalf of Lionsgate.
