Colorado has long offered its scenery to movies, and now thousands of lucky locals will get a chance to star in one. 

Casting directors are hosting an open casting call for Netflix's adaptation of the Kent Haruf novel Our Souls at Night. Starring Robert Redford  (!) and Jane Fonda (!), the movie is being shot in Florence, Colorado.

The casting call will be held Saturday, August 27, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 925 South Institute Springs in Colorado Springs. Casting is open to men and women of all ethnicities, ages twelve and older. Shooting begins in mid-September, and extras will be paid. 

According to a statement from the casting directors, "The Colorado-set novel begins as Addie Moore pays an unexpected visit to a neighbor, Louis Waters. Her husband died years ago, as did his wife, and in such a small town, they’ve known each other for decades and were friends with their late spouses. Their children live far away, and they are all alone in their big houses. She seeks to establish a romantic connection and make the most of the rest of the time they have."

Fonda and Redford have co-starred in movies before: The Chase in 1966, Barefoot in the Park the next year, and 1979's The Electric Horseman.
