New Writers For Ender's Game Movie

Two new writers will attempt to adapt Ender's Game and Ender's Shadow for the big screen.

Fresco Pictures announced that David Benioff and DB Weiss will write a new version of the Ender's Game script, in cooperation with director, Wolfgang Petersen.

Benioff has previous experience with film adaptations, writing the screenplay for Petersen's Troy, and also his own novel, 25th Hour. Benioff is also working on the script for the Wolverine movie for Fox.

Orson Scott Card praised Benioff and Weiss, saying: "I have every expectation that he and Mr. Weiss will be able to create a screenplay that will distill the strong characters and moral dilemmas of the novel into an exciting film that will justify the huge expense involved in filming it."

Last year, X-Men 2 writers Dan Harris and Michael Dougherty took an unsuccessful shot at the Ender's Game screenplay.
