Ender’s Game movie due March 15 2013

Ender’s Game movie due March 15 2013

Orson Scott Card’s novel, Ender’s Game, is a Hugo and Nebula award-winning novel, also appearing on significant mainstream lists.

It’s seemed like a natural for a movie adaptation for decades.

Well, we now have a release date: March 15, 2013.

Gavin Hood (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Tsotsi) is directing and working on the screenplay (although Card has also done a screenplay…more than one, I think).

The team of Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (Allias/Fringe/Transformers/Star Trek) are producing.

This is a large scale science fiction story, focusing on the small scale. There’s an alien war, but it’s more about the warriors…or one warrior in particular, a boy named Ender Wiggins.

There are a lot of challenges in making this movie, and fans will be watching the development carefully.

The moviemakers will also have to deal with the controversy that will be raised about comments attributed to Card regarding his alleged position on laws and homosexuality. Take a look at

A Spring release date is not always an endorsement of a studio seeing a movie as one of its strongest performers of the year…it’s Summer for blockbusters, Fall/Winter for Oscar contenders, traditionally.
