Ender's Game the movie is Wolfgang Petersen's next film
SCI FI Wire is reporting that Wolfgang Petersen's next film will be an adaptation of the sci-fi classic Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card. Of course, statements like this have been made before, but it is always exciting to hear them.
Accoding to SCI FI Wire,
Petersen added that he anticipated having to audition at least 1,000 young actors to find the right person to play Card's boy genius, Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, who is in training to defend Earth against an alien invasion in the late 21st century. But Petersen thinks Ender's Game could be as successful as the Harry Potter franchise. "I think Ender's was a little bit of an inspiration for Harry Potter," he said. "It could also be a great 3-D version of Ender's, with all that fighting in the battle stations."
Franchise? 3-D version? Is Petersen rubing his hands together like Lucasfer?
No word lately from Orson Scott Card on what he thinks of the new developments. Hopefully, he will help everyone keep their heads together and make a brilliant movie.
