At some point within the last six months, a magical cat let out a huge meow while dropping off a magical copy of the Super 8 script in front of Kyle Chandler’s magical doorstep, and now he has a role in the film. Early Edition references aside, Kyle Chandler has been cast in an unnamed role in the unnamed plot of the named movie.
Joining him is Elle Fanning who is, probably, playing one of the young children that find the footage of the alien on their camera footage. Judging by the trailer, that would mean those kids were playing by themselves on the train tracks at night. That’s bad parenting, and it makes me think twice about supporting this movie. J.J. Abrams and company should win me back by casting Connie Britton as the bad parent. [Vulture]
