Lionsgate will co-finance and handle Us distribution for a big screen adaptation of  "Ender's Game", based on the science fiction novel by author Orson Scott Card.

Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman will produce via their K/O Paper Products banner, with Gigi Pritzker and Linda McDonough producing via OddLot Entertainment. Executive producers are OddLot's Bill Lischak, K/O's Mandy Safavi and Digital Domain's Cliff Plumer/Ed Ulbrich.

"Ender's Game" originated as a short story published in the August 1977 issue of "Analog Science Fiction and Fact" magazine. Published as a full novel in 1985, Card later wrote additional books to form the "Ender's Game" series.

"...Set in Earth's future, 'Ender's Game' presents an imperiled humankind who have barely survived two conflicts with the 'Formics', an insectoid alien race aka the 'Buggers'.

"In preparation for an anticipated third invasion, an international fleet maintains a school to find and train future fleet commanders. »
