...sooooooooo have you guys heard a movie is being made?

Gavin Hood, the director (lauded for) Tsotsi and (scorned for) X-Men Origins: Wolverine is helming the project.

so far, here's how the cast looks:

some pretty wise and if i may say so impressive choices right there, kudos to the casting director.

Asa Butterfield is ENDER - Nanny McPhee Returns, Son of Rambow, The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, Hugo
Harrison Ford is COLONEL GRAFF - Han Solo, Indiana Jones, hello??
Ben Kingsley is MAZER RACKHAM - Gandhi, Sexy Beast, Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time, Shutter Island, Hugo
Hailee Steinfeld is PETRA - True Grit
Aramis Knight is BEAN - minor role in Gavin Hood's Rendition, NCIS "Freedom"
Suraj Parthasarathy is ALAI
Khylin Rhambo is DINK
Moises Arias is BONZO - Rico from Hannah Montana
Conor Carroll is BERNARD
Abigail Breslin is VALENTINE - Little Miss Sunshine, Zombieland, New Year's Eve, My Sister's Keeper, No Reservations
Jimmy "Jax" Pinchak is PETER - Let Me In
Brendan Meyer is STILSON - Adam Young from Mr. Young

i don't know about you but i like how diverse the kids look and come from, you don't always need big names to make it work.

the reaction the kid now famous for Hugo when he got the part? priceless :)

figures, he's a fan of the book.

and guess what? he's got OSC's full blessing!
"I'm delighted that Asa Butterfield is so happy to be playing Ender Wiggin! I just saw his fine performance in Hugo - best thing in the movie! - and I look forward to seeing him bring Ender Wiggin to life on the screen."
