It may focus on a younger lead, but Enderâ€™s Game is a film that even the most senior of thespians are looking to join.
Variety is reporting that Harrison Ford is being eyed for the role of Colonel Hyrum Graff, the Commander Of Training for the International Fleet. Hugoâ€™s Asa Butterfield has been confirmed as the star of the upcoming film, which will be directed by Gavin Hood, and penned by Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman.
While I myself have actually never read the book, I can say that Fordâ€™s involvement is really interesting. I think itâ€™s about time he gets involved with some projects that are a bit more intriguing, and this is definitely that. I wasnâ€™t hugely impressed by Butterfield in Hugo, so it remains to be seen as to just how strong heâ€™ll be as a lead here, but overall, this is a piece that really canâ€™t get here quick enough. Itâ€™s been rolling around for years now, so hopefully this means weâ€™ll finally get to see the damn thing.
