As we previously reported, Harrison Ford was circling a pivotal role in Gavin Hood’s adaptation of Orson Scott Card’s celebrated science fiction novel ENDER'S GAME. Now it seems he is finally confirmed and will star as Colonel Hyram Graff.

In addition ZOMBIELAND actress Abigail Breslin is confirmed as Valentine Wiggin, Ender's older sister along with TRUE GRIT's Hailee Steinfeld who will play Petra, Ender's ally at battle school. Asa Butterfield from HUGO is already confirmed in the title role as Ender Wiggin. Ben Kingsley is also in the cast although who he'll be playing remains a mystery at present. 

Production on the film begins in New Orleans in early 2012 for a March 2013 release. The fact that this is attracting some major talent is a good sign and maybe we are in for something special when we eventually get to see the film. Oddlot Entertainment are the production company behind this and they also previously produced THE SPIRIT (which wasn't very good) and DRIVE (which was very good indeed!).
