HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) _ Ted Turner will have a cameo role in the Civil War film ``Gods and Generals,″ which he is financing, a spokesman said.
Turner will reprise his role from the 1993 film ``Gettysburg,″ publicist Vic Heutschy said Monday. He will play Col. Waller T. Patton, the great uncle of World War II Gen. George S. Patton.
``Gods and Generals,″ directed by Ronald Maxwell, is a prequel to ``Gettysburg,″ which Maxwell also directed.
Turner visited ``Gods and Generals″ to observe shooting of a scene in Hagerstown earlier this month. Heutschy said he didn’t know exactly when Turner will return for his cameo scene.
The film is being shot in and around Washington County.
