Well, look who's all grown up! Abigail Breslin who first sauntered into our hearts as the pudgy Olive in "Little Miss Sunshine," and who recently flashed her bra in "New Year's Eve" is now ready to graduate into her first bonafide blockbuster movie.

The actress will join the ranks of "Ender's Game," the long developing big screen take on the classic novel by Orson Scott Card. Set in the future, the story finds the Earth at war with an insectoid race named the Formics, and follows Ender (Asa Butterfield), one of a group of children being trained to be military commanders. Breslin will play Valentine Wiggin, Ender's older sister, and joins an increasingly impressive cast that now also includes Hailee Steinfeld, Ben Kingsley and Harrison Ford.

Yes, that Harrison Ford. As you might recall, Indiana Jones was offered a role in the film last month and is now confirmed, taking on the part of Colonel Hyrum Graff, the Commander of Training for the International Fleet of young recruits. And over the weekend, it was revealed that up-and-comer Brendan Meyer (who kids know from the show "Mr. Young"), has also come aboard as one of the trainees under Ford, who is discovered to be a gifted strategist.

So this all sounds good, but Gavin "The Guy Who Directed That Wolverine Movie" Hood is in the director's chair which has us a bit concerned. But let's hope the mega producing duo of Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman can help bring the sizzle when filming starts in February. [Variety/THR]
