Update From Director Gavin Hood

Hello fellow Ender’s Game fans.  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.  

Without exception, every person who works on this wonderful film brings more than just skill to the table.  They bring passion.  Like me, they are huge fans of this story:  of its unique environments, its amazing characters and its great, timeless themes.  

We are now well into post production and the famous zero gravity battle room scenes are looking fantastic.  We started a year ago by sending our talented young actors off to a “space camp” to train under the guidance of real NASA astronauts.  They learned to move in zero gravity environments and experienced the wonderful feeling of weightlessness.  Mix in some truly incredible visual effects work and today we are looking at battle room scenes that will blow your mind!  

Tomorrow you will get your very first look at the battle room with the reveal of the teaser poster on Yahoo! Movies.  For now, enjoy a small tease of Ender’s feet at the gate! I wish I could show you more, but with just over six months to go before our Nov 1 release date, the poster will at least give you a small glimpse of what we are working towards.  

 

Until then, keep your “knees up” and thank you for all your support so far.  

All good things, 

Gavin Hood
