Asa Butterfield Confirmed For Ender's Game, Harrison Ford Could Join
Variety confirms that Hugo's Asa Butterfield has landed the lead of Ender in Gavin Hood's Ender's Game. They go on to mention that Viggo Mortensen had been wanted for the role of Colonel Hyrum Graff but talks broke down. Harrison Ford among others are now in contention for the part. Ford recently worked with producers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman on Cowboys And Aliens so the relationship could work in the film's favor. With the film expected to be released on March 15th 2013 I expect more casting announcements soon.
