    I didn't even know there was a plan for further movies yet. Interesting

    Makes the ending of Enders all that more interesting. My wife read that in the paper. They want to stretch it to five or six movies ...

    Well, Ender did wind up with the Hive Queen egg. And he did set out to find a new planet for her. It just didn't happen the way it did in the book.

    I can't see the remainder of the series of books making for riveting movies, though. Pequeninos or not...

    I'm not sayin they are bad books but Xenocide and Speaker for the dead were tough reads for me. Way to much philosophy for my tastes. I want splosions and pew pew!

    Bong Joon-ho Says His Uncut Version of SNOWPIERCER Tested Higher than Cut Version | Collider

    Oh boy...and Adgy is going all 'slowly I turned' right now.


    But really, with this becoming more antagonistic, will the Weinsteins put this in limbo as far as releasing it?

    I once read (in author's notes of Enders?) that Card never wanted to tell the Ender's Game story, that it was actually basically an afterthought to get into the real story he wanted to tell, Speaker For The Dead. He was shocked of the popularity of Enders actually.

    I have started and put down Speaker a few times and for the life of me can't see how it will make a good movie ...

    See, I loved the philosophy in the entire Ender series, as well as his Shadows series that tracks Beans life and the goings -on of Earth while Ender is in exile. There's also some very thoughtful hard science fiction in there as well. The ansible, for one. What an interesting thought!!

    Ender's sentient accounting program ("Jane") is a big part of the fun, too. Read the short story about how Ender meets her! Great stuff.
