Ender’s Game is “a moving story”
In a recent interview with Collider, Major Anderson actor, Viola Davis dished on her upcoming films, Beautiful Creatures and Ender’s Game. She talks about her awkward fangirl encounters with Harrison Ford, her love of Ender’s Game director Gavin Hood, and calls Ender’s Game a relevant and moving story. Read below:
I did Ender’s Game. People are really excited about that one. Harrison Ford. And I would stare at him all the time and my husband said, ‘You gotta stop doing that! You gotta just talk to people! I talk to people! You don’t talk to anybody!’ And I said, ‘I know, but it’s Harrison Ford!’ And he said, ‘I don’t care! Just talk to him!’ But, I would just stare at him. He said, ‘How you doing, Viola? You know, I would have flown you out here with your daughter, when your daughter was sick. You could have just asked me.’ And I thought, ‘I could have?!’ And then, he’d tell really racy jokes, and I would think, ‘Harrison Ford is telling me a joke!’ And then, I’d forget to laugh! He’s awesome! And Gavin Hood, [...] He’s tough and he’s specific, and I think that it’s going to be great. What a moving story. And once again, it’s relevant. It’s about training these young kids to be soldiers and to kill, and what are the after effects of that? It’s wonderful.
