Alex Kurtzman and Bob Orci, the screenwriting/producing duo behind Star Trek and Cowboys and Aliens, are working on the film version of Orson Scott Card’s science fiction novel Ender’s Game.
As you already know from some previous reports, the movie will be directed by X-Men Origins: Wolverine helmer Gavin Hood.
“Ender’s Game! Us (K/O), Oddlot, and Gavin Hood taking his amazing script to the town! Who wants some?”
We’re interested! Odd Lot Entertainment is producing and Gavin Hood came on to direct and rewrite the script, which needed some extensive polishing because Orson Scott Card has said that he wants a “film where the human relationships are absolutely essential an honestpresentation of the story” and won’t let it get made unless that’s the case.
Ender’s Game, is the story of a a boy nicknamed Ender who, at a very young age, is chosen to go into space for Battle School.
Battle School is a place where adults train gifted children to be military leaders for an imminent war using zero gravity war games, interactive digital simulations and a whole bunch of cold-blooded precision and aggression.
We’ll keep an eye on this one, so stay tuned!
