Done right, given the source material, Ender’s Game has the potential to be a pretty fantastic sci-fi adventure film. It’s certainly one that fans of the Orson Scott Card novel and series are greatly anticipating. And now, those of the right age could have the opportunity to play a part in the film... if they can get to New Orleans this weekend for the open casting call.

Card’s Ender’s Game is set in the future, decades after a nasty alien war, and follows a boy named Ender Wiggin, whose especially sharp skills at strategy afford him the opportunity to attend a battle school for children to prepare humanity’s fight against aliens. Directed by Gavin Hood, Abigail Breslin and Harrison Ford are among those on board to star in the big screen adaptation.

Per "the Official Web Site of Orson Scott Card,", an Ender’s Game open casting call for kid-aged extras (likely playing Ender’s Battle school-mates) is being held in New Orleans this Saturday (January 14th). Kids and teens between the ages of 10-17 “of varying ethnic background” are invited to visit the Hilton Garden Inn in the Warehouse District of the Big Easy to try out for a spot in Battle School.
To be considered, please come to the open call this weekend, located at the address below between 10am and 2pm.

Hilton Garden Inn

1001 South Peters St

New Orleans 70130

Please also bring a recent snapshot of yourself.

The site specifies that home-schooled students are encouraged to try out due to shooting during school hours. Filming is set to take place in New Orleans from February through June 2012, with “up to 8 weeks of work” provided to those fortunate kids selected to be in the movie.
