George Clooney is seeking "hundreds of extras" to star in a film alongside him, Ryan Gosling and Evan Rachel Wood.
Ides Of March begins shooting in more than two dozen locations around Cincinnati and northern Kentucky next month.
Kristen Erwin, the head of the regional film commission in Cincinnati and northern Kentucky, says scenes for "Ides of March" will be shot in more than two dozen locations.
George directs and stars as a Democratic governor running in the presidential primaries. The film also stars Marisa Tomei, Paul Giamatti and Philip Seymour Hoffman.
A regional film commission executive told The Cincinnati Enquirer that no release date has been set for the film but that Clooney's Smokehouse Pictures plans to open a production office in the area.
She added that the film will need "hundreds of extras" while shooting three or four weeks in February and March.
George's father, Nick, has worked as a TV news anchor in Cincinnati and also wrote a newspaper column there.
