Well.... they claim they are. It's been in and out of development for so long that you never know for sure. At one point I was told that Orson Scott Card felt they couldn't make it properly because it would take too long and it was really about the relationships. Then there was hope they could do it in an animated (like Pixar style, but not all cartoony). Now they've gotten to the point where they can make the movies and get them done quickly enough to make it work because the technology has caught up with a lot of what they'd have to do to tell the WHOLE story. Here's a pic of Harrison Ford as Graff when the kids first get to the training station in space and it looks legit, so we shall see.....

Anyway, my most anticipated movie is the next Hobbit. Wildcard pick for best movie: The Monument's Men with Daniel Craig, Matt Damon, Cate Blanchett, George Clooney, Bill Murray, and John Goodman. Color me intrigued.

Forgot about Ender's game. I've read the book maybe 10 times in my lifetime plus the rest of the series once (At least I think. They kept adding books. Last one I read was Ender's shadow.) So glad Harrison Ford is in this. I hope these kid actors has the skills to pull this off.

Anchorman: The Legend Continues - Not everyone's humor but I loved the first one.

How did you like Ender's Shadow? I loved that book. It made me cry. I think it would be amazing to film Ender's Game and Ender's Shadow back to back and see the story from the Ender POV and then immediately follow it up from the Bean POV, and then if they wanted to, they could move forward with Ender's story. I think it all makes much more sense when you get the Bean version. It should have been the second book, and my understanding is Card realized that later, and was going to farm out the alternate POV books to a series of authors. As they talked about it though, he took Ender's Shadow back, because he felt only he could really paint the complete Bean picture that he was hoping to paint, and he did it amazingly well. What an amazing book. For anybody who has ever served in the military, or struggled, or just felt out of place, or pretty much had any sort of difficulty in life then I can't recommend Ender's Game enough. I hope it focuses on the relationships and not on a bunch of CGI business. This book is about human interaction and how people function together or are unable to function and so on. It's a deep story.

I thought Ender's Shadow was the best book of the series - even better than Ender's Game. Absolutely loved it. And that would be a stellar idea. They'll never do it, but it would be awesome.

I'm glad we're in agreement. I think part of it was that Card had just improved as a writer between Ender's Game and Ender's Shadow, but part of it was that his ability to write it from a different "brain" made it all the more amazing. Plus I just liked Bean's back story a bit more. Ender's back story was very important in the scheme of the whole universe Card created, but Bean's back story was more important in telling why everything in that particular situation happened the way it did and how much different things were when seen from an alternate POV. Ender thought he knew everything..... but well, I'll leave it there and hope they make it properly.

Shark, I loved the book, too. It was the first parallel book I had read at the time, so i wasnt sure how it would add to the orginal, but Card really did something special with it. I agree that it should have been the second book, too, which sort of ties in with my small complaint with it all. I had re-read Enders Game so many times, that after reading Enders Shadow, I felt duped. Bean deserved so much more attention to the original, yet it took almost 15 years for him to get his due.

I would love back-to-back POV movies, but if Hollywood doesn't see it is financially wise, for whatever reason, I hope they go in more depth with Bean's character. I mean, please, don't downplay Beans brilliance and importance just because its called "Enders" Game.
