The hunt is on to find thousands of people to star in a scene for the new Danny Boyle film which is being shot in Norfolk and Suffolk.
The production team need 5,000 people to appear on camera in a concert scene being filmed at Gorleston next month.
A tweet by script editor Emma Freud states: “Dear Everybody In Suffolk/Norfolk. We’re shooting a Danny Boyle/Richard Curtis movie and need 5000 PEOPLE on camera at a (brilliant) concert on Gorleston beach.”
Filming will take place from 10am-2pm on Wednesday June 27.
Danny Boyle, whose hits include Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire and The Beach, is shooting for a comedy written by Richard Curtis, based on a world where iconic band The Beatles do not exist.
The production has already shot scenes in Lowestoft, Halesworth and at the Ocean Room and the James Paget University Hospital in Gorleston.
Cinderella and Downton Abbey star Lily James has also been spotted shooting scenes in the region alongside co-star Himesh Patel.
