Harrison Ford, Abigail Breslin sign on for 'Ender's'

"The Ender's Game" is getting its cast in place: Variety reports that the adaptation of Orson Scott Card's novel has Harrison Ford, Abigail Breslin and Hailee Steinfeld signed up.

Gavin Hood is at the helm of the sci-fi film, which follows the gifted Ender Wiggin (played by Asa Butterfield), a genius strategist who's recruited to a military school to train to take down an alien race.

Ford will play Colonel Hyrum Graff, who's in charge of the recruits, and Breslin will play Ender's sister, Valentine. Steinfeld has joined the cast as Ender's friend, Petra Arkanian.

"Ender's Game" is set to bow in theaters on March 15, 2013.

    I really plea with the guys behind the film not to let it become about the adults. Griff is a imprtant figure but is not in the book a ton, niether is Valentine to be honest. Please do the book justice!!!!

    Ender is a really cool character. Because of this character (and it being a family name) my son's middle name is Ender.

    Abigail has grown to be so beautiful. I nearly mistook her for an older actress who's name I can't remember.

    Great book. Should translate well to the screen. Harrison Ford will be wonderful. I touch myself inappropriately at all movies. But anyway.....Excited to see this coming to the big screen.

    I thought Abigail would turn out to be a dog, but she is starting to look pretty good.

    Can't remember where I saw it but I read somewhere that Beiber is going to play Enders brother, Peter. Oh the humanity.
