Thousands of people have queued in Dublin city centre to audition for a role as an extra in an upcoming film.

They earlier queued around the block of Liberty Hall for a part in The Last Duel.

Directed by Ridley Scott, it stars Matt Damon and Ben Affleck and will be shot in parts of Dublin, Meath, Wicklow and Tipperary.

Producers had put out an open casting call for 'lots of film extras' for large crowd scenes.

The event was held to at the SIPTU building at Eden Quay.

This woman queued up for an hour, and explains what people had to do when they got inside.

"You literally just go up and you just have to fill out your information into a form, and give skills of what you can do for parts in the movie.

"And then you have to stand against a wall with a measuring for your height behind you in the picture, and just hold your number up in front.

"It's loads of fun - I really enjoyed it".

The Last Duel is scheduled to be released early next year.

The screenplay - based on a book by Eric Jager - is written by Affleck, Damon and Nicole Holofcener.

It focuses on a dispute between a knight and squire in Medieval France.

The Meath Chronicle has previously reported that Bective Bridge in the Boyne Valley is set to be one of the filming locations for the upcoming film.
