Ender's Game lands at Summit Entertainment Summit Entertainment is in negotiations to distribute Ender's Game from writer-director Gavin Hood.

Ender's Game started out as a 1978 short story by Orson Scott Card, which was expanded into a full novel in 1985. The story takes place after an alien invasion, with the government recruiting children with special abilities to take on the alien onslaught. The children compete in a game which is described as a cross between Harry Potter's quiddich and Star Wars' light saber battles.

Gavin Hood will direct from his own script which is adapted from the Orson Scott Card novel. Gavin Hood won a Best Foreign Language Film Oscar with Tsotsi in 2005, and made his studio directorial debut with X-Men Origins: Wolverine in 2009.

We reported in February that Gavin Hood was shopping this sci-fi project to the studios, and it seems Ender's Game finally has a home at Summit Entertainment.
