MTV Speaks with Bobby Cohen

MTV recently spoke with producer Bobby Cohen (KO Paper Products) in New Orleans on the set of his upcoming movie Now You See Me, where he had the following to say about the Ender's Game film:
"First of all, I have the great pleasure to work with [producers] Alex Kurtzman and Bob Orci... [It's] based on the incredible book that people have been trying to make forever. A lot of directors have tried to do it. We have an amazing script. Gavin Hood is directing, we've got Harrison Ford, Sir Ben Kingsley, Viola Davis, Hailee Steinfeld from True Grit, Asa Butterfield from Hugo."
 He also speaks a bit about the facility in which Ender's Game is currently shooting:
"There is a N.A.S.A. stage where they literally used to build the rockets for the space shuttle that is now actually a sound stage," he said. "They will be spending 65 some odd days about 45 minutes from here on a big giant set. So that's going well."
As we reported back in February, Ender's Game seems to be doing the majority of its filming at the Michoud Assembly Facility in New Orleans, a facility left vacant after the discontinuation of NASA's space shuttle program and which is now being occupied in part by Big Easy Studios. We can only assume this is the location of the set to which Cohen is referring, or that it is at least nearby.

Filming is scheduled to continue in New Orleans through June 8th.

Edit: Just a heads-up that Bobby Cohen is not a producer of Ender's Game but rather the president of the film division at K/O Paper Products, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci's production company.
