A “New Moon” Casting Call?

A Vancouver Craigslist posting shows that a major movie production is seeking First Nations/aboriginal actors and actresses between the ages of 15 and 25 according to Movieset Blog.

Though the posting doesn’t say for what film, the dates of filming (mid-March to May) coincide with the first leg of shooting on the “Twilight” sequel “New Moon” and the description fits that of various extras/background roles required (ie. Jacob’s family, friends, members of the Quileute tribe).

Here’s a copy of the original posting:
