Odd Lot Entertainment has attached Tsotsi director Gavin Hood to rewrite and develop to direct the bigscreen version of Orson Scott Card's seminal science-fiction work Ender's Game, according to 24 Frames.

Orson Scott Card's book tells of a world in which humans face a serious threat from an alien race known as the Formics and begin training elite military units in response. Against this backdrop comes Andrew Wiggin, also known as Ender, a child who becomes a top-flight solider and helps to save Earth (by fighting simulations that turn out to be real).

No production date has been set.
