I’m not sure if this was accidentally sent to us or what (you never know with J.J. Abrams and his viral urges), but we received a casting call for an unnamed movie that we believe is for J.J. Abrams’ Super 8, the Steven Spielberg/Amblin 70’s/80’s homage that is said to follow a bunch of kids who are shooting a movie with a Super 8 camera in the seventies or eighties. When they develop the film, they notice that there’s an alien creature in the frame. Now, the sides provided with the casting call tell us that the film will follow two brothers and a sister as the protagonists. They all find out that their parents are getting a divorce. There are also references to the station wagon in the teaser and Reno. Check out the call below.
Seeking 13-14 year old Boys & Girls for the lead roles in a new Paramount feature film. No previous acting experience is necessary, but must have great energy and a wonderful sense of humor and thoughtfulness.
JOSH: Male 13-14. Josh is cute, but could be on the scrawny side – definitely not the school jock. Loveable, empathetic, smart and interesting. Must have a great sense of humor. Should have a Midwestern feel.
COLLIN: Male 13-14. Slightly, or more than slightly, overweight. Collin is confident, driven, optimistic and a natural leader. Must have a great sense of humor. Should have a Midwestern feel.
NATALIE: Female 13-14. A natural beauty – she is stunning, but not the “cheerleader” type. Strong and confident, but has an underlying sadness. Should have a Midwestern feel.
