Summit Entertainment is currently in production on the sci-fi adaptation Ender's Game, set for release March 15, 2013. A new production blog was launched today. Producer Roberto Orci is running the blog, and wrote the first post about an amusing quote by Asa Butterfield, who plays the title character.
Take a look at his message, along with a photo of the actor's chair on set.
"It took us all a second to realize Asa was right when he said Ender's Game was an amazing book from "the late 1900s." We use that phrase all the time now, like, "Clinton was President in the late nineteen hundreds!" Most of us read Ender's Game when we were young and wondered when it would become a movie. We never dreamed then that we would all be part of the team to bring it to the screen, nor did we realize the novel's description of our world would be so prescient that its vision would still be unfolding before our very eyes today. And now, watching Asa bring a character to life who has been on our minds since our youth, we realize things happen for a reason. We were waiting for him. Make yourself comfortable, Ender!"
