Asa Talks About Ender’s Game at Critics Choice Awards

Asa gets to talk a little bit about being cast in Ender’s Game below. The interviewer at first just asks him questions about how he’s dealing with school, visiting L.A. (his 2nd time), and getting more offers, which leads Asa to talk about filming on a new movie in February, which he then mentions is “Ender’s Game.”

Watch the video below (note: lots of background noise from people talking)

This kid seems amazingly mature for his age, but I think that will add a stronger performance as Ender. He believes that the script stays true to the book, so hopefully that will be the case. We’re looking to hear more about it in the coming months, when they actually do start filming.
