Paramount has decide to announce the cast for writer-director J.J. Abrams' upcoming sci-fi movie Super 8 after news of two of the cast members was scooped earlier this week.
Starring Emmy-nominated Kyle Chandler (Friday Night Lights) and Elle Fanning (Somewhere, winner of the 2010 Venice Film Festival's Golden Lion Award), the cast includes veteran actors Ron Eldard and Noah Emmerich, newcomers Joel Courtney, Riley Griffiths, Ryan Lee and Zach Mills, and Gabriel Basso (The Big C).
What characters the actors may play is unknown, as is the plot of the movie, though a trailer has revealed some kind of monster (or alien, perhaps) trying to emerge from a train car. A casting notice discovered in May gave some details on three pre-teen roles, which, if the casting notice is truly for Super 8, give a brief glimpse into the super-secret movie.
