Ender\’s Game may finally be filmed


Now, we don’t want to get your hopes up, but the LA Times is reporting that Gavin Hood has been doing some work on the Ender’s Game movie. If you don’t know what Ender’s Game is, kindly commit seppuku with your nearest lightsaber. Despite your personal feeling towards him, Orson Scott Card’s initial Ender novel is a science fiction classic and one of the greatest entries the genre has ever seen. It’s required reading for any scifi fanboy right alongside such books as The Lord of the Rings. The movie has been in development hell for years, to the point where Card himself recently said it probably wouldn’t happen. But according to this story in the LA Times, work is being done on it now. A word of warning though, if you’re one of those few people who never read the book, the story spoils the ending.
