Harrison Ford Joins Asa Butterfield in Ender's Game Adaptation

It's been a rumor for awhile but Variety reports it's definite. Harrison Ford will join Asa Butterfield - that wonderful young star of HUGO-  in Ender's Game, the film based on Orson Scott Card's novel. Gavin Hood (X-Men Origins:Wolverine) will direct from his own script.
Abigail Breslin and Hailee Steinfeld co star along with Aramis Knight, Moises Arias, Jimmy "Jax" Pinchak, Suraj Parthasarathy, Conor Carroll and Khylin Rhambo.
 
 
 
According to Variety:
The film will start shooting early in 2012 in New Orleans and will be released in the U.S. on March 15, 2013.
Set in Earth's utopian future, "Ender's Game" Ender is a young genius strategist recruited by the government to help destroy an insect-like alien race.
Ford will play Colonel Hyram Graff, who's in charge of training young military recruits. Breslin will play Valentine Wiggin, Ender's older sister, while Steinfeld plays Petra Arkanian, Ender's trusted right hand.                                          Ford recently signed on to play famed Brooklyn Dodgers g.m. Branch Rickey in Legendary Pictures' Jackie Robinson biopic "42."
Steinfeld starred in the Coen brothers' "True Grit" and will soon play Juliet in Carlo Carlei's upcoming adaptation of William Shakespeare's classic romance. Breslin can currently be seen in Garry Marshall's "New Year's Eve" and the indie "Janie Jones."
