First Entry From The Official Ender's Game Production Blog Is Live

Shooting has begun on the big screen adaptation of Ender’s Game, next year‘s sci-fi film about kids being sent to their almost inevitable demise. I wonder if it will pick up the same kind of box-office heat as this year’s model?

Also underway is the official production blog, kicking off with a rather modest on-set picture, and some praise of star Asa Butterfield by co-writer Roberto Orci.

It took us all a second to realize Asa was right when he said Ender’s Game was an amazing book from “the late 1900s.” We use that phrase all the time now, like, “Clinton was President in the late nineteen hundreds!” Most of us read Ender’s Game when we were young and wondered when it would become a movie. We never dreamed then that we would all be part of the team to bring it to the screen, nor did we realize the novel’s description of our world would be so prescient that its vision would still be unfolding before our very eyes today. And now, watching Asa bring a character to life who has been on our minds since our youth, we realize things happen for a reason. We were waiting for him. Make yourself comfortable, Ender!

Also in the cast are Harrison Ford, Abigail Breslin, True Grit‘s Hailee Steinfeld and Butterfield’s Hugo co-star, Ben Kingsley. Gavin Hood is directing and, well, I’m happy about that. We all have our issues with the last Wolverine movie, I’m sure, but I’m not laying them at his feet.
