Fluxed as we are, MTV News also knows what’s gravitating in the world of Ender’s Game. Recently, they caught up with Bobby Cohen, who works with the producer Roberto Orci. Alike Alex Kurtzman, who showed his galactic enthusiasm for the cast, Cohen expressed his feelings about the actors as well.
“Our other movie is ‘Ender’s Game,’ based on the incredible book that people have been trying to make forever. A lot of directors have tried to do it. We have an amazing script. Gavin Hood is directing, we’ve got Harrison Ford, Sir Ben Kingsley, Viola Davis, Hailee Steinfeld from ‘True Grit,’ Asa Butterfield from ‘Hugo.’”
Plus, spilling some insight of the set that took place at a NASA sound stage.
“There is a NASA stage where they literally used to build the rockets for the space shuttle that is now actually a sound stage,” he said. “They will be spending 65 some odd days about 45 minutes from here on a big giant set. So that’s going well.”

This is STELLAR! It should definitely give us a bit of relief that they went for a realistic look for battle school and not a made set from scratch. And what better way to film a space school then filming at NASA headquarters.
