Lionsgate Holds Rights to Ender’s Game Novels

It has been an up and down discussion whether Ender’s Game can become a blockbuster hit alike other YA novel-to-film adaptions. However, Lionsgate believes they can recreate the success they had from the first The Hunger Games film and the Twilight series with, the currently filming, Divergent movie and Ender’s Game.

Variety analyst goes to explain how Ender’s Game success is a “longshot” despite its wide fandom, the prestigious film company behind its production and its award shinning cast.

However, many believe, along with Lionsgate and the fans, that Ender’s Game can be a successful movie.

[Doug] Creutz also noted that Lionsgate has two potential franchise starters launching in the current fiscal year which could add “meaningful” multi-year earnings power: “Divergent,” launching March 21, and “Ender’s Game,” opening Nov. 1 starring Asa Butterfield and Harrison Ford.

It’s a sure favorite for fans and with Lionsgate having a good 10% of the production it can sure gain a bigger audience once people are introduced to the novel or film.

The article moves on to some interesting news that fans of the Ender Games series could take in many ways.

Lionsgate has rights to all 12 of Card’s “Ender’s Game” series, adding that not all of them are readily adaptable for film.

Past interviews with actors and the producers have brought up the word “franchise” when speaking of the Ender’s game film. We’ve come to speculate that Ender’s Game can be succeeded by possible sequels. However, as said above, and assuming we’ve all read the series, not all books would be made to films because of their complexity.

So will we see sequels? It’s up to Lionsgate/Summit and the director to figure out if scripts are possible.

Personally, it would be amazing to follow Ender’s story as the books show us, but I think it would be very complicated to recreate a film version unless they pull a James Cameron. As Lionsgate has 12 novel rights, I would love to see the Ender’s Shadow series be given a try. It’s not as complicated as Ender’s intergalactic journey but it has its few difficult tendency’s. Also, we’d see the jeesh back in Earth’s troubling times.
