Producer Says Ender's Game Not Over

After Orson Scott Card claimed he was "not interested" in the Ender's Game film adaptation, it seemed as if this classic novel would never be made into a film. Not so, the producers tell io9.


Last year we broke the news about director Wolfgang Peterson parting ways with the adaptation of Orson Scott Card's film adaptation for Ender's Game. Since then, there's been tons of speculation over whether the future war saga (about genius children working for the military) will goa head. Despite comments from Card in an LA Times interview this week regarding the film, one of the films producers insists that the project is not dead.

After telling the times that:

“[Card] was not interested in a ‘tough-hero action film’ and refuses to condescend to green-screen Hollywood. Card imagines a ‘film where the human relationships are absolutely essential — an honest presentation of the story.’”

It seemed as if all was lost. But we're bringing you news today that Ender's Game the movie, is not over. Producer Lynn Hendee insists that the "project is not dead."

So can we all breathe a giant collective sigh of relief, because I don't want to leave this Earth without seeing zero gravity battle simulator, especially with an awesomely precocious kid leading the troops.



I'd care more, but Card is pretty much a dick and I'm not all that interested in seeing him get a ton of hollywood money.

That said, the virtual world stuff in Ender's Game would have been cool to see.
