EW released this image of the eagerly anticipated adaption of the book (which was adapted from a 1977 short story) Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card. It’s well known that an adaption would be tricky because of how complex the book was, both in the future world is created and the relationships between the characters. It sounds like director Gavin Hood knows that and is ready for the challenge. From EW:
Asa Butterfield (right) as Ender, standing in line with other new recruits (a.k.a. “Launchies”) early on at his time in the Battle School. He’s facing off with the imposing Colonel Graff (Harrison Ford) over whether his emails to home are being blocked. It’s telling that the two characters are clashing over communication, since they’ve got major communication issues with each other.
Nice character development! Always a good sign. Flydrs will be following these developments closely, so check back often! November 1, 2013 can’t come soon enough!
