Oprah Winfrey’s new movie The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks is now casting older African American men ages 80 and older to work on a scene filming this Wednesday, September 14th in Atlanta, Georgia.

About Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks:

The Immortal Life Of Henrietta Lacks centers around the true story of Henrietta Lacks, an African-American woman whose cells were used to create the first immortal human cell line.

Told through the eyes of her daughter, Deborah Lacks (Oprah Winfrey), the film centers around her search to learn about the mother she never knew and to understand how the unauthorized harvesting of Lacks’ cancerous cells in 1951 led to unprecedented medical breakthroughs, changing countless lives and the face of medicine forever. “It’s a story of medical arrogance and triumph, race, poverty and deep friendship between the unlikeliest of people,” from Deadline.
