Butterfield, who last starred in Martin Scorsese’s “Hugo,” will topline Summit’s adaptation of young adult novel “Ender’s Game” alongside Hailee Steinfeld, Abigail Breslin, Ben Kingsley and Harrison Ford. “Ender’s Game” is slated to launch Nov. 1.
“With a stunning turn in the title role of ‘Hugo,’ Butterfield has already proven himself as one to watch in Hollywood,” said CinemaCon managing director Mitch Neuhauser.
CinemaCon, the annual convention of the National Assn. of Theater Owners, runs April 15-18.
