Important update!

Postby Boothby » Fri Apr 01, 2011 5:27 pm

Sorry it took me so long to post this, but it's been a whirlwind of a day...

I got a call from Roberto Orci this morning while I was at work (Alex Kurtzman was supposed to have called me a few days prior, but is apparently laid up from a biking accident over the weekend, and forgot to tell anyone).

ANYHOW....

Marvel Productions HAS taken on Ender's Game, and is pushing Orci and Kurtzman (once he gets better, of course) to start updating the script. Gavin hood is assigned to SCRIPTING duties, and (as far as I can tell from our conversation) NOT going to be directing.

The same bunch of guys who did effects for Iron Man are starting pre-production design for EG. ILM will be doing most of the CG effects, and Weta Studios may be tagged for the Buggers (I actually know one of their pre-viz guys, so I gave them a plug...did I help direct them towards Weta??? I'll probably never know. Cool, either way)

Stan Winston Studios was mentioned for the battle suits.

I even heard Jon Favreau's name mentioned in the office hubbub I could hear behind Orci...director, perhaps? Would be very cool.

I've got to send over a data dump to Michael Riva this weekend, and fly out to talk with him and Ryan Meinerding (and Daren Dochterman, I would bet) this coming Thursday.

I'll let you all know how it goes, but I haven't felt this positive about the film since about this same time last year!!!
