BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

A major feature film is currently taking applications for positions with the crew.

According to LouisianaEntertainment.gov, "Fantastic Four" will begin shooting in Baton Rouge on February 10, 2014. The production company is taking resumes for all crew positions.

Resumes should be mailed to henrystreetresumes@gmail.com.

According to industry reports, "Fantastic Four" was originally scheduled for production in Vancouver. However, Fox moved the location to Baton Rouge shortly after the lawmakers killed a bill during the 2013 legislative session that would have, if passed, reduced the state's film production incentive program.

"Fantastic Four" is the first Marvel-based Fox film to shoot in Louisiana. According to IMDB, Josh Trank has signed on to direct the film, and Michael B. Jordan will perform the role of Johnny Storm. The film is set to be released in 2015.
