Super 8 Casting Call?

Slashfilm is reporting that Paramount Pictures has sent out a casting notice for an unnamed Paramount feature film that might be Super 8. The written and directed film by JJ Abrams will start filming in the fall. I am unclear on what makes the site think this is related to Super 8 beyond a rumor that indicates a rumor that the film is set in 1979 and focuses on kids that used their Super 8 to film something "sinister". If the rumor is true, then this is a description of characters that may be in the film.

Seeking 13-14 year old Boys & Girls for the lead roles in a new Paramount feature film. No previous acting experience is necessary, but must have great energy and a wonderful sense of humor and thoughtfulness.

JOSH: Male 13-14. Josh is cute, but could be on the scrawny side – definitely not the school jock. Loveable, empathetic, smart and interesting. Must have a great sense of humor. Should have a Midwestern feel.

COLLIN: Male 13-14. Slightly, or more than slightly, overweight. Collin is confident, driven, optimistic and a natural leader. Must have a great sense of humor. Should have a Midwestern feel.

NATALIE: Female 13-14. A natural beauty – she is stunning, but not the “cheerleader” type. Strong and confident, but has an underlying sadness. Should have a Midwestern feel.
