The guys over at Cinematical seem to think so. They received a casting notice from Paramount yesterday that did not have a title attached to it, and while that in itself isn't terribly interesting, the fact that they had also just sent a casting notice for 'Footloose' with a title attached to it, made them a little suspicious. After looking through the roster of upcoming movies from Paramount that could possibly use 13-14 year old kids who don't have any previous acting experince, they determined that there's a good chance this could be for Super 8 (although it's still not 100% confirmed).
You'll find the casting list below for 3 13-14 year old kids which I can only assume are the kids that are shooting a super 8 movie and while going through their footage they see a creature, possibly the scariest thing they've ever seen... That is, if the original "leaked" plot synopsis is correct. So check out the cast list below and maybe you fit the bill or know someone that does...
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.
I found some more info after the jump
Update: It seems as though this isn't a casting call for "Super 8", but rather for Bad Robot's remake of the movie "Little Darlings". Sorry to disappoint, and hopefully none of you sent in audition tapes thinking it was for "Super 8"
