M. Night Shyamalan's latest movie "The Last Airbender" is in production and there will be an open casting call for extras on February 7, 2009 in Philadelphia.
Based on the hugely successful animated TV series, the film is set in a world where human civilization is divided into four nations: air, water, earth and fire. The film follows the adventures of the successor to a long line of Avatars who must put aside his irresponsible ways and stop the Fire Nation from enslaving the Water, Earth and Air nations.
The film stars Jackson Rathbone, Dev Patel, and newcomer Nicola Peltz.
They're looking for physically fit men and women ages 18 to 85 and children (boys and girls) ages 6 through 16. Near and Far Eastern, Middle Eastern, Asian, Mediterranean and Latino. Oh, and if you have a background in martial arts or military experience, that's a plus.
Here's what they're casting for: Craftsmen, artists, puppeteers, gymnasts, dancers, athletes, soldiers and grandparents for basket weaving, candle making, painting, ceramics, needlepoint, silk screening, whittling, jewelry making, cooking and fishing.
