Gavin Hood has written a blog post on why Ender’s Game is a personal project for him and just how production is going.
It’s been four years since I first began writing a screenplay based on the classic novel. I love the book. And I especially love the character of Ender Wiggin. I was drafted into an army myself at 17, and Ender’s journey of self discovery – his battles with authority figures he does not trust and his development as a leader – are themes I strongly relate to.
The image at the head of his story was a tiny tease for the film’s poster, which we’ll be seeing in full tomorrow. I used it at the head of this story too.
