The novel Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card is considered a classic by many science fiction fans, so when approaching its big screen adaptation, every tidbit of information about it is worth leaping on. So … how about this?
Oscar nominated actress Viola Davis is the latest to be cast in the big screen adaptation of the sci-fi novel Ender's Game …
Davis previously tackled sci-fi with the film Solaris in 2002, in Ender's Game she'll play a "military psychologist" responsible for the emotional welfare of the young recruits …
Gavin Hood is writing and directing the film and Sir Ben Kingsley was recently confirmed for the role of Mazer Rackham joining an incredible cast of Harrison Ford, Abigail Breslin, Hailee Steinfeld and of course Asa Butterfield as Ender.
Davis was nominated for an Oscar for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for her work in Doubt back in 2009 and will be at the Academy Awards again this year (going for Best Actress in a Leading Role) thanks to her time as Aibileen Clark in The Help.
Davis' presence adds even more gravitas to an already power packed production.
