New Pic Of Ender Wiggin In Ender’s Game Movie (But It’s A Bit Of A Tease)
Ender’s Game: Ender’s monitor
The team behind the Ender’s Game movie currently in production continue to place some teasery images on the film’s Production Tumblr. This one was posted by producer Roberto Orci and shows Ender Wiggin (Asa Butterfield) with his monitor in-place (thrilling, isn’t it?). Or at least we assume it’s Asa Butterfield. Do you know the Hugo and Merlin actor well enough to correctly identify the back of his neck? Or is it a sneaky neck double? And does it really matter?
Anyway, here’s what Orci had to say: “Though Ender’s world is one worth saving, it sometimes comes with a price. The novel was amazingly prescient about a great many things: remote controlled drone wars, the internet, the influence of blogging, hand held computing tablets like the iPad, and of course, electronic surveillance implants. Implanted tracking and monitoring chips are no longer a science fiction concept. They exist now. And one day, they may be as advanced as the monitor implanted into Ender, which allows Colonel Graff to ‘see through his eyes’ and know: HE’S THE ONE.”
Currently filming for a 1 November 2013 release date, Ender’s Game is directed by Gavin Hood (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) and also stars Ben Kingsley and Harrison Ford.
