Mr. Hakujin Posted December 24, 2012 Share Posted December 24, 2012 (edited) So this has to be one of my all time favorite books. And I was optimistic about the casting and looking forward to the film until I saw this first pic... Ford as Gen. Graff is inspired casting, but it's backwards in a way. Harrison Ford would have made a much better Mazer than Ben Kingsley, while Kinglsey would've been a great choice for Graff. Maybe Ford just didn't want to play another legendary space fighter? Also, by the looks of the kid they've got playing Ender (who was great in Hugo), it's likely gonna be the entire book in one film. I'd hoped after the Potter7, Twilight4, and Hobbit books being broken up over several films they might have decided to do the same w/ Ender's Game, but I guess that was wishful thinking. Admittedly the other films already had successful franchises under their belts. However, I think the pre-Battle School and then the Command School elements of the book were divided nicely in the comic adaptations and really could've been a template for two great films. The monitoring chip is in the film, so we will get at least a little of the pre-battle school set up. And the director has said the book's original ending is in place, so those are good signs.
