A Hollywood zombie movie is looking for extras to attend its casting call in Croke Park.

Tilted Pictures are looking for Irish extras to play infected zombies for the movie The Third Wave.

It's David Freyne's new physiological thriller, which stars Juno actress Ellen Page and Siege of Jadotville actor Sam Keeley.

Casting takes place in Croke Park on Wednesday, November 30 between 7.30am and 3pm.

Zombie hopefuls are advised to wear jackets, hats and scarves. Clothes with logos are not permitted.

The film will be shot on location in Dublin and Wicklow in December.

The Third Wave is set following the outbreak of an aggressive virus, and sees a young woman (Page) wake in a hospital bed.

As the horrifying events that led her there are revealed, it becomes clear that the cure is just the beginning.

Society has divided into those who were once infected, and committed terrible violent acts, and those who never contracted the virus.

In the backdrop, the rise of a terrorist movement, fuelled by the deep divisions, threatens to plunge the region into chaos again.
