<p><a target=Director Gavin Hood is reportedly developing Ender’s Game, the award winning novel by Orson Scott Card, into a feature film. Hood (Tsotsi) plans to direct the film using a modified script written by Card.

The story follows a group of children in the future who, because of their high intelligence, are chosen to attend a special school. Here they are taught the methods of space warfare using high-tech "simulators." Notice how I put quotes around the word "simulators." Why do you think I did that?

Although highly accalimed, Ender’s Game has not had much luck in Hollywood due in part to the special effects required and the fact that a film adaptation would rely heavily on child actors. While I understand those concerns, I have full faith that the man who brought us X-Men Origins: Wolverine will have the skill and subtlety needed to pull off such a complex story.
