Three more added to sci-fi thriller Ender's Game, The Grey's Nonso Anozie among them

Gavin Hood is sure as shite casting ENDER'S GAMES to the nines. Come on, when you have Harrison Ford in a supporting role, you're doing big things...

Anyhow, word from Deadline is another trio of actors have been added to the cast of ENDER'S GAME. THE GREY star Nonso Anozie (above) is most notable, set to play Sergeant Dap in the adaptation of Orson Scott Card's sci-fi thriller. Not to be outdone, Stevie Ray Dallimore (JOYFUL NOISE) will play Ender’s father John, with Andrea Powell (BREAKING DAWN PART 2) joining as Ender’s mother Theresa. As you know, the trio joins Ben Kingsley, Viola Davis (below), Asa Butterfield and Hailee Steinfeld.

Set in Earth's future, ENDER'S GAME presents an imperiled humankind who have barely survived two conflicts with the Formics (an insectoid alien race also known as the "Buggers"). In preparation for an anticipated third invasion, an international fleet maintains a school to find and train future fleet commanders. The world's most talented children, including the novel's protagonist, Ender Wiggin, are taken at a very young age to a training center known as the Battle School. There, teachers train them in the arts of war through increasingly difficult games including ones undertaken in zero gravity in the Battle Room where Ender's tactical genius is revealed.

ENDER'S GAME is already slated for a March 15, 2013 release.

Extra Tidbit: I remember a kid reading ENDER'S GAME in like 5th grade. Is it really that juvenile?
