Three More Join Ender's Game

Source: ComingSoon

February 18, 2012

The cast for Gavin Hood's adaptation of Orson Scott Card's sci-fi novel Ender's Game has been coming together fairly quickly and we can now add Nonso Anozie to the mix playing Sergeant Dap, according to Deadline. They also report that Stevie Ray Dallimore and Andrea Powell will play the parents of the film's main character Ender Wiggins, played by Hugo star Asa Butterfield, a young strategist drafted to save the human race.

Anozie was last seen in Joe Carnahan's thriller The Grey, but the British character actor could be seen in everything from Guy Ritchie's RocknRolla to Mike Leigh's Happy-Go-Lucky to last year's Conan the Barbarian. Powell has been a part of many short-lived TV series like "The Gates" and small roles in movies, while Dallimore had a small role in the recent Joyful Noise.

The large ensemble cast for the Summit Entertainment production, which will begin filming in New Orleans this month, also includes Harrison Ford, Sir Ben Kingsley, Viola Davis, Hailee Steinfeld and Abigail Breslin with a March 15, 2013 release date already set.

New Ender's Game Set Photo Revealed

Source: ComingSoon

April 3, 2012

Ender's Game producer Roberto Orci has posted a second production blog entry and says:

If you think regular school is tough, try it in a rotating space station. And by the way, do you have a hall pass for hall number 0058? Because if you don’t, you could end up scrubbing the showers. When you first arrive at Battle School, all you perceive is its utility, its functionality… that is until you enter the BATTLE ROOM, where there is no up, no down, and ZERO G’s. Movie making can become overly reliant on digital worlds, and nothing can replace a well-built set that you can see and touch and stand in the middle of, fooling you into thinking you are really there. Enjoy this small taste of Ender’s big world. We’ll see a lot more in the weeks to come.

The Summit film is based on the best-selling, award-winning novel by Orson Scott Card about a brilliant young strategist named Ender Wiggin who is drafted by the International Fleet to save the human race. Directed by Gavin Hood, the March 15, 2013 release stars Asa Butterfield, Harrison Ford, Ben Kingsley, Viola Davis, Abigail Breslin and Hailee Steinfeld.

Source: ComingSoon

Summit Entertainment announced today that the sci-fi adventure will hit theaters on November 1, 2013 instead of the originally announced date of March 15, 2013.

The ensemble cast includes, among many others, Asa Butterfield, Ben Kingsley, Harrison Ford, Hailee Steinfeld, Abigail Breslin and Viola Davis and tells the story of a young boy raised in a Utopian future who is drafted by the International Fleet to destroy the alien Formic race.

Ender's Game is currently shooting in Louisiana. You can check out updates from the set at the film's official production blog.

New Ender's Game Photo of Ender Wiggin and His Monitor

Source: ComingSoon

April 18, 2012

Ender's Game producer Roberto Orci has updated the film's Production Tumblr with a tease of Ender Wiggin (Asa Butterfield) and his monitor. Orci says...

Though Ender’s world is one worth saving, it sometimes comes with a price. The novel was amazingly prescient about a great many things: remote controlled drone wars, the internet, the influence of blogging, hand held computing tablets like the I-Pad, and of course, electronic surveillance implants. Implanted tracking and monitoring chips are no longer a science fiction concept. They exist now. And one day, they may be as advanced as the monitor implanted into Ender, which allows Colonel Graff to “see through his eyes” and know: HE’S THE ONE.

Currently filming for a November 1, 2013 release, the Gavin Hood-directed adaptation also stars Ben Kingsley, Harrison Ford, Hailee Steinfeld, Abigail Breslin, Viola Davis, Nonso Anozie, Stevie Ray Dillmore, Andrea Powell, Moises Arias, Conor Carroll, Aramis Knight, Brendan Meyer, Jimmy "Jax" Pinchak, Suraj Parthasarathy and Khylin Rhambo.

Actually looking forward to this. Could be very good if done right. Hadn't read it in years and my son is reading it for school right now.

Lionsgate Releases Statement Regarding Ender's Game

Source: ComingSoon

July 12, 2013

In response to the recent examination of Ender's Game and its relationship to the book's author Orson Scott Card, Lionsgate has released the following statement on behalf of the film:

“As proud longtime supporters of the LGBT community, champions of films ranging from GODS AND MONSTERS to THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER and a Company that is proud to have recognized same-sex unions and domestic partnerships within its employee benefits policies for many years, we obviously do not agree with the personal views of Orson Scott Card and those of the National Organization for Marriage. However, they are completely irrelevant to a discussion of ENDER’S GAME. The simple fact is that neither the underlying book nor the film itself reflect these views in any way, shape or form. On the contrary, the film not only transports viewers to an entertaining and action-filled world, but it does so with positive and inspiring characters who ultimately deliver an ennobling and life-affirming message. Lionsgate will continue its longstanding commitment to the LGBT community by exploring new ways we can support LGBT causes and, as part of this ongoing process, will host a benefit premiere for ENDER’S GAME.”

Directed by Gavin Hood, Ender's Game stars Asa Butterfield, Ben Kingsley, Harrison Ford, Hailee Steinfeld, Abigail Breslin, Viola Davis, Nonso Anozie, Stevie Ray Dillmore, Andrea Powell, Moises Arias, Conor Carroll, Aramis Knight, Brandon Soo hoo, Jimmy "Jax" Pinchak, Suraj Parthasarathy and Khylin Rhambo. The movie hits theaters and IMAX on November 1.
