So, I know it’s been ages since I’ve posted anything here. Figured this was post-worthy.
I’m a huge Orson Scott Card fan and I can definitely say that Ender’s Game is my favourite book. I don’t know why, but I just can’t not re-read that thing over and over. I’m a little sad that my first paperback copy of it is now lost to the ether, but it did free myself up to grab a hardcover copy, so all is not lost.
Anyways, I know that this movie has been in development essentially since the novel was released and I’m glad that casting has officially started. Ender and (possibly) Graff seem like good calls, but I know that I am forever going to be disappointed in Bean.
I mean, Bean is meant to look like a 4 year old, but have the insightful intelligence of something super-human. He’s smarter than all of his peers and all of the teachers, as well. I know this only comes out in Ender’s Shadow and beyond, but from what I understand, the goal was to pen a movie that encompassed both novels: Game and Shadow.
Oh well. It seems as though the film has been slated for release in 2013. Now we play the waiting game…
