After years of starts and stops a film adaptation of Orson Scott Card’s sci-fi masterpiece Ender’s Game is really and truly underway with Hugo’s Asa Butterfield in the lead as Ender. They’re shooting it as I type this and here’s the proof…

That’s Butterfield’s chair on the Ender set as posted on the film’s brand new official production blog right here. They’ve only posted one update so far but that update reveals that Asa thought Ender’s Game was an amazing book from “the late 1900s”. Kids say the darndest things, or something.

    I hope the graphics will be as good as Starwars. Would bring happiness to me if it had better graphics 🙂

    I’ve waited in hopes for Orson Card to make this movie happen for over a decade now!  I knew it was only a matter of time when my brother (the best computer graphics designer there has ever been) called me to tell me that he just met Mr. Card who came to their office a decade ago saying that Mr. Card was looking into potential graphic designers but was holding off on his plan due to not being able to find the right kid the right age to play the part?  Something along those lines… I’m super excited though… I’ve always been a huge fan!… And I’ve always admired Mr. Card for his faith and knowing that he lived in the town next to the one I hold dear to my heart… Knowing the guy is a “saint” makes me all the happier for his future success knowing his success is all our success 🙂

    I hope the movie focuses more on substance than the ridiculous “graphics”

      Agreed. Amazing visuals mean literally nothing if the story is shit and the characters are bland. See: the Star Wars prequels.

    Um, wasn’t it first published in 1985, which is, in fact, the late 1900’s?  So why the quotation marks, and the “kids say the darnedest things” comment?
