HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A new movie chronicling the journey of the 442nd Regimental Combat Team is being filmed in Honolulu, and filmmakers are looking for volunteers to help reenact an iconic moment.

More than 200 extras are needed for the scene that will film on Sunday, April 16 at Iolani Palace. The scene takes place in March 1943, when 2,686 Japanese-American soldiers of the newly formed 442nd Regimental Combat Team marched down King Street and were bid aloha by 17,000 well-wishers.

The movie, written by Hawaii author Stacey Hayashi, needs Asian or local men, ages 15 to 50, to portray soldiers, as well as people of all ethnicities and ages to play civilians.

Extras will not get paid, but it’s a unique opportunity to take part in a symbolic piece of history. Register online at www.GoForBrokeMovie.com.
