Ender's Game Cast News and Gossip

After principal photography wrapped a month ago and the production blog posted its final update, the cast of Ender's Game headed their separate ways... but that doesn't mean they haven't been busy. Let's take a look at what some of the actors have been up to these past weeks and what they have coming up in the future:

Asa Butterfield (Ender Wiggin)

What he's up to: It looks like Butterfield has been mostly focusing on his education since the wrap; we've seen loads of tweets about homework, exams, and a baby sister who thought she'd give her brother the chance to wear jeans to school instead of his standard uniform. 

But it's not been all school work: Last month, Butterfield attended the 14th Annual Young Hollywood Awards where he was presented with the Breakthrough Award of 2012. You can check out some photos from the event here.

And, as an Ender's Game wrap gift, Butterfield received tickets to BBC's Hackney Weekend, a music festival with took place this year the weekend of June 23/24 on the Hackney Marshes in London. See if you can find him in this picture.

Hailee Steinfeld (Petra Arkanian)

What she's up to: Hailee Steinfeld is currently in NYC filming her new movie Can a Song Save Your Life?. Also starring Adam Levine and Keira Knightley, the film is centered around a music business executive and his bond with a young singer-songwriter who just moved to Manhattan.

She's also rumored to be starring in the 2014 movie adaptation of Daniel Handler's book Why We Broke Up, a comedy about a high school girl who falls for the captain of the basketball team.

Steinfeld attended the Young Hollywood Awards last month with Ender's Game co-stars Asa Butterfield and Moises Arias.
