The writing duo responsible for writing pretty much everything have joined Gavin Hood’s adaptation of Ender’s Game.

Gavin Hood to Play ‘Ender’s Game’
Tuesday, September 21 by

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.
