True Grit's Hailee Steinfeld to join Asa Butterfield for Ender's Game
Posted by: Zack Bruce
Ever since Hailee Steinfeld got the lead role in the remake of TRUE GRIT, she’s been one of the most wanted teen actresses in Hollywood. The last movie she was up for that I can remember was THE HUNGER GAMES. That role ultimately went to Jennifer Lawrence but it’s still a big deal to be considered. I think she’s a wonderful young actress who can only keep going up.
It looks like Steinfeld may be taking a part in the one of the most anticipated adaptations– ENDER’S GAME. The 1985 novel from Orson Scott Card centers on a futuristic military academy where children are trained to fight an invading alien force. The actress is negotiating with Summit for the role of the lone female in the child army who develops a relationship with the lead character. HUGO’s Asa Butterfield was recently cast in the lead role of Ender.
WOLVERINE ORIGINS director Gavin Hood is helming on this one that is due to release on March 2013.
