25 Dec – At 69-years-old, nothing is slowing down the "Indiana Jones" star Harrison Ford who is now officially taking a role in the new Gavin Hood's sci-fi movie, "Ender's Game".
In the South African director's film, Ford will play Colonel Hyram Graff, the man who runs Battle School, manipulating children's mind and training them to battle against an insect-like alien race.
Hood is not just bringing Ford to the production, he has also cast Oscar and BAFTA Awards winner, Ben Kingsley, to play Mazer Rackham, a legendary warrior many had thought was dead. Young actor Asa Butterfield of "Hugo" plays Ender Wiggins and another young star, Abigail Breslin will be playing Valentine, Wiggins's older sister.
Based on the beloved sci-fi novel written by Orson Scott Card, "Ender's Game" follows young soldier Ender Wiggins who is recruited by the International Fleet to battle against the aliens that had previously attacked Earth.
