It will be lights, camera, action for Dover again as a new movie will be shot in the town.
Auditioners are looking for Dovorians to join the cast but are keeping details of this project under wraps.
It will be the latest chance for the area to appear on the silver screen as the town, port and castle have been used as settings for decades.
The Casting Collective agency has now put out an online announcement saying: “Men and women wanted for a major feature film shooting in Dover from September 2017.
“Good rates of pay. You must be over 16, legally allowed to work in the UK with National Insurance number and live in the Dover area (no travel expenses will be paid).”
The Mercury contacted The Casting Collective to learn more about this new film, what it is, if the title is yet known, and whether any big names are involved.
But a spokesman replied: “We are not at liberty to discuss any details of any project we are working on due to the confidential nature of all productions.”
Dover has been a highly favoured setting for location scouts particularly because of the iconic White Cliffs and majestic castle.
In April 1990 Mel Gibson came to Dover Castle for an 11-week shoot for a movie version of the Shakespearean tragedy Hamlet.
By chance that film, also with Glenn Glose and Helena Bonham Carter, is being shown at the Astor Community Theatre in Stanhope Road, Deal, from 2pm on Tuesday, July 11.
The dramatic execution scene for The Other Boleyn Girl was also shot at Dover Castle.
The 2008 film told the story surrounding Henry VIII’s second wife Anne Boleyn, whose death he ordered, and also included a role by Dover actress Karol Steele.
The castle was used in September 2013 for the Disney film Into the Woods, starring Johnny Depp, Meryl Streep and Tracey Ullman.
Nine months later it was a location for Avengers: Age of Ultron with Robert Downey Jr and Samuel L Jackson.
Dover’s coast and cliffs have also been regularly used, such as for Sherlock Holmes - A Game of Shadows from 2011.
In 1971 Sean Connery came to the town's then Hoverport to film a scene for the James Bond movie Diamonds are Forever.
He was shown taking a hovercraft to France and one of the regular craft in the service, the Princess Margaret, was also seen.
Even Dover’s ugliest building was a fleeting screen star.
Burlington House was briefly seen in the TV comedy drama film The Booze Cruise, which by chance was shown on ITV3 this Tuesday.
It is seen as Martin Clunes and his co-stars are in a car travelling along Townwall Street to catch a ferry.
The film was released in 2003 but the high rise office block was demolished last year.
