SENECA — Producers are looking for about 200 extras for a movie being filed in Oconee County that includes Burt Reynolds in the cast.
Seneca Mayor Dan Alexander says filming will begin next week for the movie “Elbow Grease.”
The 77-year-old Reynolds will be a grandfather in a family in a movie that the production company calls a Southern-themed romantic comedy.
Alexander says some scenes will be filmed on Lake Keowee. Other scenes will be shot in and around Seneca, as well as Walhalla and Westminster. Filming is expected to run through most of October.
Reynolds starred with Ronny Cox, Ned Beatty and Jon Voight in “Deliverance,” based on the James Dickey novel in 1971 with filming on the Chattooga River in Oconee County, as well as in Georgia.
