The older son will be played by Eisenberg (The Social Network), the younger son’s role is up for grabs. Also, the film is casting for the role of his son’s female, teen, classmate. You can see the character breakdowns below.
The story is about a famous photographer (Huppert) who suddenly dies. After her death, the family discovers some startling secrets.
The film’s casting directors are looking for 2 teen actors to play the roles of Conrad and Melanie.

There is a deadline for actors to get their videos uploaded which is the 22nd of this month.
Auditions for the following roles
14-16 to play 15, Caucasian. The son of Isabelle and Gene, younger brother of Jonah. Nerdy, insecure, pubescent and pensive. Has a mysterious quality about him, lonely and without friends. His exterior and interior dont necessarily match: awkward, combative and aloof, it is reasonable to suppose he could be a dangerous kid, but in fact he is genuine, surprisingly empathetic, an idealist – and even a romantic. LEAD.
Female, 14-16 to play 15, open ethnicity. A beautiful, popular girl from Conrad’s class. Completely out of Conrad’s league. Not the best student – often mispronouncing words and emphasizing the wrong parts of sentences. However, like Conrad, Melanie’s exterior and interior don’t necessarily match – we find she has a depth of feeling and understanding that we might not have first supposed. SUPPORTING.
“Louder Than Bombs” should begin filming later this year and is currently scheduled to have a 2015 release date.
