CHALMETTE, LA. - Kids, teens and young adults are invited to an open casting call today for Harrison Ford's new movie Ender's Game. Alexis Allen and Batherson Casting are looking for background actors ages 12-21 to play an elite group of students at a technical military school. Filming could conflict with school hours, so home schooled students are especially encouraged to attend.

Casting will be held at St. Bernard Parish Council Chambers (8201 West Judge Perez Dr.) in Chalmette between 3:30 - 6:30 pm. Applicants should bring a recent headshot.

Ender's Game is based on Orson Scott Card's famous science fiction novel and also stars Asa Butterfield, Hailee Steinfeld and Abigail Breslin. Oscar-winning Director Gavin Hood is scheduled to film Ender's Game in New Orleans from February until June.
