It's based on a novel about an immigrant factory worker who falls into a vat of pickles in 1918, is brined, and comes out alive 100 years later, Variety reports.

Casting directors are looking for both men and women, ranging in age from early 20s to 70s.

The scenes will begin filming on Oct. 31.

For scenes filming from Oct. 31 and Nov. 2, they are looking for people ages 20-55 to play "Followers," who have a very clean cut, conservative, buttoned up look. Anyone interested in these scenes must be available both days.

That same day, they are also looking for extras, ages 23 and older, to play reporters – including TV news camera people, and print reporters and photographers. Anyone interested is asked to put the word "Press Conference" in their email subject line.

Finally, on Nov. 2, extras are needed to play people in attendance at a debate. They are looking for men and women, ages 25-75, who have a professional, intellectual type look. Use the word "Debate" when submitting your information in an email.
