Orlando Bloom and Kirsten Dunst's latest film is generating a huge buzz in Kentucky after 1,300 people turned up to a casting for extras at the weekend (19JUN04).

The CAMERON CROWE-directed film ELIZABETHTOWN attracted a huge turnout of budding movie star-wannabes - all hoping to repeat their performance in SEABISCUIT, which was filmed in central Kentucky in 2002.

Extra DAVID HEREFORD, 70, says, "I wouldn't take anything for the experience I had with Seabiscuit."

Kentucky film office director M. TODD CASSIDY says, "Though it's (Elizabethtown) set in Kentucky, they could have filmed it anywhere.

"So we're very happy they chose to come here."
