Viola Davis Joins “Ender’s,” “Creatures”

Oscar-nominated “The Help” actress Viola Davis has scored supporting roles in sci-fi epic “Ender’s Game” at Summit Entertainment and “Beautiful Creatures” at Warner Bros. Pictures and Alcon Entertainment reports Variety.

Gavin Hood penned and directs the adaptation of Orson Scott Card’s future-set novel “Ender’s Game” which follows a genius boy strategist recruited by the government to help destroy an insect-like alien race.

Davis will play a military psychologist who oversees the emotional welfare of young trainees. She also helps design the games that test their skills and resilience. Asa Butterfield, Hailee Steinfeld, Abigail Breslin and Harrison Ford also star.

Based on the first in a trilogy of novels by Margaret Stohl and Kami Garcia, ‘Creatures’ follows two teens who must confront a curse that has haunted the girl’s family for generations.

Davis plays a librarian and friend of the teen boy’s deceased mother who loves him like a son and will do whatever she can to protect him.

Richard LaGravenese penned the script and is directing. Shooting kicks off in April in New Orleans.
