Hailee Steinfeld in talks for Ender’s Game

Oscar nominee Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit) is in talks to star in Gavin Hood‘s upcoming adaption of the sci-fi novel Ender’s Game.

According to Variety, Steinfeld is close to signing on as Petra Arkanian, ally of the eponymous Ender (to be played by Hugos Asa Butterfield).

Written by Orson Scott Card in 1985, Ender’s Game kicked off a series of books about a human battle against alien invaders.

With Steinfeld being pipped by Jennifer Lawrence for the coveted Hunger Games lead, a role in the Ender’s Game franchise might be a sweet second place prize.

The picture is set for release March 2013.

Discuss: Any fans of the book out there? What do you think of this casting?
