Hype Continues to Grow for Orson Scott Card’s Film Adaptation classic novel Ender Game. It is due out in 2013 and will be directed by Gavin Hood, whose previous work includes X-Men Origins: Wolverine. This is one of the most anticipated book-to-movie adaptations of all time – and fans all over the internet are thrilled that this book is finally hitting the big screen.
Following the announcement that the role of Ender will be played by Martin Scorsese star Asa Butterfield Hugorumors are swirling about who will star alongside him. The Hollywood Reporter recently announced that True Grit’s Hailee Steinfeld is likely to star as Petra, and just today we learned that Ben Kingsley, known for films such as Schindler’s List, Shutter Island and Species, is also in talks to star in the film. Even Harrison Ford has been mentioned as a possible Colonel Hyrum Graff.
We at Orbit can’t wait to see how it turns out, and I’m sure the legion of Card fans can’t either. But who else would you like to see in this film? Personally, I’m intrigued to see who will play Valentine and Peter. . .
In the meantime, don’t miss our reissue of Ender’s game the novel (UK/ANZ), released this month in shiny new packaging, and with a boy on the cover who coincidentally doesn’t look too much like Asa Butterfield. . . (we must be psychic)
