The Ender's Game movie is the biggest thing to happen to this series in a long, long time, excluding the new books of course. The Fresco Pictures website has released some vital information that everyone should know.
First, the director of Ender's Game will be Wolfgang Petersen. Petersen is a world renowned director from Germany. He has directed such movies as The Neverending Story, In the Line of Fire, Outbreak, Air Force One, and most recently, The Perfect Storm. Orson Scott Card is excited about Petersen directing the film.
Second, the studio looking after the film will be Warner Bros. OSC is also very pleased about this. There is no need to go through all that Warner Bros. has done. My favourite, though, was Animaniacs, where the terrorized the Warner Bros. studio. But that is irrelevant.
The movie will not actually be just about Ender's Game. They are going to combine the most important elements of both Ender's Game and Ender's Shadow that should make a fantastic movie.
Ender is the main character, with Bean being a equally important role. Major adult roles will be Col. Graff and Mazer Rackham. Petra, Alai, and Bonzo will be the major children's roles.
Casting and hiring will not take place until the script has been written and agreed upon by all parties. The dirctor must also finish filming his next film before anything happens. They are saying that it could be two, three, or even four years until the movie is released. So, as the boy scouts always say, "Be Prepared."
