Universal Pictures 'Battleship' open casting calls for extras in Hawaii

The upcoming Universal Pictures epic naval action adventure 'Battleship' is holding open casting calls in Hawaii for Military Personnel/Spouses and Children of all ages and any ethnicity to work as paid background actors on the film.

A contemporary story of an international five-ship fleet engaged in a very dynamic, violent and intense battle against an alien race is known as The Regents. They come from a world similar to ours, and aren’t actually looking to take over humanity or the planet Earth. Instead, they’re on a mission to build a power source in the ocean, which is where they come in contact with a navy fleet. The film will also show us both sides of the story—from the aliens’ perspective, as well as the humans.
