No need to fear, Ender’s Game is here! The highly acclaimed novel from Orson Scott Card is about to hit the big screen and damn does it look cool. The long awaited film adaptation involving children being recruited for warfare has been in development hell for a long time. Then a glimmer of hope sprung from nowhere a few years ago when Transformers writing team , Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman picked up writing a screen adaptation. Soon after, Gavin Hood (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) jumped on board as director for the project. The result looks far more impressive than the attempted Wolverine film he made a few years ago.
