There was a lot of distribution action today, ensuring that several fanboy faves will actually get released despite frustratingly long delays up to this point. So let’s start off with a project that’s been in limbo for ages now.

Cabin in the Woods looks like it has found a home in Lionsgate. The Joss Whedon-helmed horror pic has so far suffered a year-and-a-half delay that seems to have nothing to do with the quality of the film and everything to do with the corporate typhoon that took place at MGM. Expect release news soon. (Deadline)

Summit Entertainment has snatched up the U.S. rights to the fabled sci-fi novel Ender’s Game, having gotten Wolverine director Gavin Hood attached to the project as well. Summit is waving a tearful goodbye to Twilight, so they’re on the lookout for a new franchise, and this could very well be it. (Deadline)

Fox has taken back Shawn Levy‘s Kodachrome, which Fox had first-look rights to, but didn’t actually get a chance to consider before Levy sold the project to Dreamworks. It was apparently an honest mistake, but I will not let a simple thing like the truth get in the way of a perceived feud between Shawn Levy and Fox. THEY WANT BLOOD! Anyway, Fox decided it does want Kodachrome and exercised its first-look option. (Variety)

The writing duo responsible for writing pretty much everything have joined Gavin Hood‘s adaptation of Ender’s Game. Strangely Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci will not handle scripting duties on this as they’ve entrusted that to X-Men Origins: Wolverine director Hood. Which I take to mean they haven’t seen X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

Ender’s will carve another notch into Kurtzman and Orci’s producing resume. They have previously produced Eagle Eye, Star Trek, and Cowboys & Aliens. In summation, these guys have enough money and power that they can afford to not look like lesbians anymore. (via /Film)

Gavin Hood to Play ‘Ender’s Game’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/gavin-hood-to-play-enders-game/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/gavin-hood-to-play-enders-game/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 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.
