Although all of this seems to be very plausible, not everything is what it seems to be, so take these rumors with a grain of salt! Please note that there have been reports of scams like this where casting companies will try to get your credit card number for "processing fees" or the like. If you are asked for your credit card number before they have even looked at your head shot, be very wary as it may very well be a scam!

They'll use the pictures you send them for thumbs on a p*rn site. Haha! No, I thought about the wording of this and I think that's probably typical of any movie that they don't actually name it. This is probably done to help keep things under wrap (story elements) and avoid hoards of people standing around gawking on a shooting location. And as far as my question about why they specifically state Ukrainian, that's probably done to avoid sounding racist, as I'm sure "White People Wanted" would have.

Reminds me of when Is aw them filming the dark knight downtown. I saw the Gotham PD squad car just parked out front of an office building. I wish I had a camera on me as I'd taken a picture with it I could.
