Ben Kingsley In Talks For Ender’s Game


Ben Kingsley In Talks For Ender's Game

Sir Ben Kingsley is in talks to play Mazer Rackham in Ender’s Game, the upcoming film adaptation of Orson Scott Card’s sci-fi novel of the same title. Kingsley will be joining a cast that consists of Asa Butterfield (Ender Wiggin), Hailee Steinfeld (Petra Arkanian) and possibly Harrison Ford (Colonel Graff).

Casting for Ender’s Game has been a hot topic recently, after the recent announcement that the film would indeed be getting made. If Ben Kingsley is cast as Mazer Rackham, he’ll be the fourth well-known and highly-celebrated actor whose name is connected to the film.

I love the Ender’s Game series, and I’m really hoping that director Gavin Hood can come through with a solid film. At least the cast is shaping up to be a steel curtain; hopefully they can make for any other shortcomings that such a difficult-to-make film could produce.

Is Ben Kingsley a good choice for Mazer Rackham? Let us know what you think in the comments.
