Ender's Game & Ender's Shadow: According to Variety, Warner Bros. and director Wolfgang Petersen have set scribes Dan Harris and Michael Dougherty to adapt the Orson Scott Card books Ender's Game and Ender's Shadow into a film Petersen will direct.

Petersen sparked to the bestselling books because he wanted to make a young adult fantasy -- terrain he hasn't covered since The Neverending Story. The Hugo Award-winning book series begins on Earth after an alien attack. Gifted children are recruited for war, with a prodigy leading the assault against aliens.

Wolfgang Petersen recently wrapped up production on the upcoming epic, Troy, starring Brad Pitt and Eric Bana.
