ENDERS GAME assembles stellar cast
Filming is now underway on a long-anticipated film adaption of Orson Scott Card’s iconic sci-fi novel ENDER’S GAME. X-MEN ORIGINS:WOLVERINE director Gavin Hood has assembled a stellar cast that includes Harrison Ford, Sir Ben Kingsley, Hailee Steinfeld (who burst onto the screen in the Cohen’s TRUE GRIT), Viola Davis (Oscar® nominated for her role in THE HELP) and Asa Butterfield from HUGO in the starring role of hero Ender Wiggin.
The story tells of a future where humankind has barely survived its confrontation with an alien race known as the Formics. An Earth-orbit Battle School finds and trains the most talented children to become the next generation of defenders and when young Ender Wiggin is recruited, his tactical genius is uncovered.
Stay tuned for more details on this big budget blockbuster from the producers of STAR TREK and TRANSFORMERS that’s due to blast into cinemas early 2013.
