    Harrison Ford Among Older Actors Sought For 'Ender's Game'; Asa Butterfield Locked In

    So is Harrison Ford a gift or a curse these days? The actor hasn't had a hit film -- that didn't involve carrying a whip once again -- in over a decade. You'd have to go all the way back to 2000's "What Lies Beneath." Since then it's been a string of underperforming and...

    Martin Scorsese Talks 'Hugo Cabret,' Hints At Struggles With 3D
