A second casting call for the feature film "42" has been scheduled for Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the central court at the Eastgate Town Center in Brainerd.

The Chattanooga Department of Education, Arts & Culture and the Chattanooga SE Tennessee Film Commission issued a release stating that casting directors say they're needing hundreds more to be "background talent" for the film.

The release said plans call for shooting in this area for five weeks beginning in May.

All positions in the film that is based on the life story of baseball great Jackie Robinson will be paid, officials said.
