J.J. Abrams’ Super 8 Casting in Full Swing

After adding “Friday Night Lights'” Kyle Chandler and Dakota Fanning’s little sister to the cast of “Super 8″, J.J. Abrams has now added Ron Eldard (left), Noah Emmerich, Gabriel Basso, Joel Courtney, Riley Griffiths, Ryan Lee and Zach Mills.

The only thing known about the movie so far is that it’ll focus on Area 51, the secret military installation where UFO nuts believe there are grey little men running around serving coffee to the U.S. Government. At least, when they’re not trying to rig the lottery. Aliens love them some lottery, doncha know.

Abrams wrote the script and will be directing, with Steven Spielberg producing.

The super duper secret movie starts shooting in West Virginia on Monday.
