Ender's Game

The long-gestating film adaptation of Orson Scott Card‘s classic sci-fi novel Ender’s Game is in full swing with a solid director in Gavin Hood (Tstosi) and a stellar cast. Producer Roberto Orci has been providing regular updates on the progress of the film through his Tumblr production blog.

Yesterday Orci posted a picture of the film’s young hero Ender Wiggins with a monitoring chip implanted on the back on his neck. Check out the image here below.

Along with the picture Orci offered up his thoughts on the timeliness of the technology and its place in the universe of Ender’s Game:

“Though Ender’s world is one worth saving, it sometimes comes with a price. The novel was amazingly prescient about a great many things: remote controlled drone wars, the internet, the influence of blogging, hand held computing tablets like the I-Pad, and of course, electronic surveillance implants. Implanted tracking and monitoring chips are no longer a science fiction concept. They exist now. And one day, they may be as advanced as the monitor implanted into Ender, which allows Colonel Graff to “see through his eyes” and know: HE’S THE ONE.”

The previous week the producer posted a photograph of a set depicting Ender’s bedroom on Earth as well as some more thoughts regarding the set design and how it represents the character in the film.

“The more futuristic the world, the more invisible its technology. So why shouldn’t Ender’s room look just like any normal kid’s room? And not every future is a dark dystopia. The world that Ender lives in is a world worth saving. That’s why he is willing to leave his family to go into an orbiting Battle School and risk not seeing his sister, Valentine, again until they are both adults. That doesn’t mean this world doesn’t have rules. Ender’s parents had to get permission from the state to have a third child, and if Ender ever had any doubt if he was unwanted, his mother and father’s shock at having their son recruited to be a future leader and transferred to space makes it clear to him that they’ve always loved him. They know that when Ender leaves the safety of his home, they will not be able to protect him any longer. We will keep your room for you just as you left it, Ender…”

Ender’s Ansible, an Ender’s Game fan site, has examined the room photo and discovered some cool and interesting Easter eggs, including a Halo Master Chief action figure and a Boogie Board Tablet.

Ender’s Game stars Asa Butterfield (Hugo) in the title role of a brilliant child who joins a program designed to produce military officers out of bright children for a war Earth is waging with an alien known as the Formics, or “buggers.” Joining Butterfield are Abigail Breslin (Zombieland), Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit), Ben Kingsley (Sexy Beast), recent Oscar nominee Viola Davis (The Help), and Harrison Ford. The film will be released by Summit Entertainment and Lionsgate on November 1, 2013.
