Open casting calls and auditions for Legendary Pictures 'Man of Steel'

Click Here for the new updated post.

 _______________________________________________

The Warner Bros. Pictures, DC Entertainment, and Legendary Pictures feature film "Man of Steel" is currently casting principal actors in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, and Vancouver. There are also open casting calls scheduled for people interested in working as extras, stand-ins, and photo doubles for the film's stars in the Chicagoland area. There will also be extras cast in Vancouver, BC.

Actor Henry Cavill has landed the starring role of Clark Kent/Superman. Cavill is best known for playing Charles Brandon on the Showtime series "The Tudors". He is the first non-American actor to be cast in the role. Three time Academy Award nominee Amy Adams has been cast as Lois Lane, Academy Award winner Russell Crowe will play Superman's Kryptonian father Jor-El, two time Academy Award winner Kevin Costner and Academy Award nominee Diane Lane will play Clark Kent's adoptive parents Jonathan and Martha Kent.

Zack Snyder will direct "Man of Steel" from a screenplay written by David S. Goyer. Snyder's directorial credits include Universal Pictures' "Dawn of the Dead," as well as the the Warner Bros. Pictures feature films "300," "Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole," and "Sucker Punch".

Legendary Pictures Chairman and CEO Thomas Tull will executive produce, Lloyd Phillips will co-executive produce. Chris Nolan and Emma Thomas will produce for Syncopy, Charles Roven will produce for Atlas Entertainment, and Deborah Snyder will handle production for Cruel and Unusual Films. "Man of Steel", which has an estimated budget of $175 million, is scheduled for a theatrical release in December 2012.

Note: "Man of Steel" has been using the working title of "Autumn Frost". A working title is the temporary name of a film used during its development. Working titles are used primarily for two reasons - the first being that an official title has not yet been decided upon and the working title is being used as a filler for naming purposes, the second being to intentionally disguise the production of a high profile film. In some cases a working title may ultimately be used as the official title. This "title ruse" is now a very common practice by which these high-profile films or television series are given a fake working title to keep its production a secret, and to prevent price gouging by suppliers, casual theft and undesirable attention. The release title of this film will be "Man of Steel".

Filming on "Man of Steel" will take place in the Chicago, Plano, and Naperville, Illinois areas beginning August 22, 2011 and continue through late September, 2011. The production will then move to Vancouver, BC where it will continue shooting through April, 2012.

In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Cavill) is a young twentysomething journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond anyone’s imagination. Transported to Earth years ago from Krypton, an advanced alien planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question – Why am I here? Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Costner), Clark soon discovers that having super abilities means making very difficult decisions. But when the world needs stability the most, it comes under attack. Will his abilities be used to maintain peace or ultimately used to divide and conquer? Clark must become the hero known as "Superman," not only to shine as the world’s last beacon of hope but to protect the ones he loves.

Warner Bros. Pictures 'The Dark Knight Rises' open casting calls in Pittsburgh

Note: "The Dark Knight Rises" has been using the working titles of "Magnus Rex" and "Fox Hills Green". A working title is the temporary name of a film used during its development. Working titles are used primarily for two reasons - the first being that an official title has not yet been decided upon and the working title is being used as a filler for naming purposes, the second being to intentionally disguise the production of a high profile film. In some cases a working title may ultimately be used as the official title. This "title ruse" is now a very common practice by which these high-profile films or television series is given a fake working title to keep its production a secret, and to prevent price gouging by suppliers, casual theft and undesirable attention. It this case, I assure you that the title of this film will be "The Dark Knight Rises".

NASA Web-Series open casting call for children 6 to 14 years old in Houston

From the beautiful Joy Saxon of "Joy Kids Downtown" and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration in Houston, TX comes a new web-series on the International Space Station and Robonaut. There will be an open casting call for kids in the Houston area to host the show. Shooting will begin in mid-July, 2011.

Robonaut is a dexterous humanoid robot built and designed at NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas. Robonaut (R2B) was successfully launched and boarded the International Space Station on February 24, 2011. R2 is the first humanoid robot in space. R2, now unpacked, will be initially operated inside the Destiny laboratory for operational testing, but over time, both its territory and its applications could expand.

Joy Saxon runs Joy Kids Downtown in Houston. When Joy was eight years old, her mother created and produced a show called "Kids TV Express", which was written, directed, and filmed by kids for kids. The show won two national awards AND aired on PBS Austin and KVC-13 Austin. Joy anchored the show for over a decade starting at 8 years of age, and has since appeared in numerous TV shows, commercials, films, and stage productions. She also has extensive training in theatre and acting.

Set on Halloween and described as a cross between “Superbad” and “Adventures in Babysitting.” 17 year old Wren, aka Karen DeSantis, is coerced by her promiscuous mother into watching her weird little brother Albert on Halloween, when what she really wants to do is go to a Halloween party thrown by her hearthrob Aaron Riley. Wren finds her night going bizarrely awry when Albert wanders off and she desperately tries to track him down before her mother can find out he's missing.
