Casting for Ender's Game?

Supposedly, Ender's Game is going to be made into a movie. I know there were names bandied about as the best choice for Ender, but I think I have the definitive Bender: Ed Sanders, "Toby" in Sweeney Todd.

The kid is absolutely amazing, and was a complete unknown before Sweeney Todd.

I want to know where Tim Burton found him, because I definitely want to see this kid in more films.

Yay or nay?

Hopefully not being cast in Ender's Game. He's a rotten actor, even by George Lucas standards.

Just pop in Freddie Highmore and Alex Etel for the role of Ender and Bean, but don't dawdle, or they'll sprout into being a teenager soon enough.

It's one think to have 5 and 6 years old acting like adults on the printed page but I think this is going to be very difficult on screen.
