Extras needed for filming in Richmond

Filming of football homecoming scenes for the Lifetime original movie “Unanswered Prayers,” inspired by Garth Brooks #1 hit song, will take place at Varina High School in Richmond on Saturday starting at 8:30 a.m.

For the day, Varina High School will become home to the “Stone Creek Wolverines,” Even though the calendar says Oct. 2, the scene will portray a cold November day in 2010, so those interested in being extras are asked to wear jackets, fleece vests, windbreakers, knit caps, scarves and gloves.

The school colors are navy and gold.

Extras have a chance at winning prizes including Garth Brooks merchandise, free dinners and even a wide-screen TV.

Varina High School is located at 7053 Messer Road in Richmond.
