The production of the highly anticipated film adaptation of the novel “Ender’s Game” is already underway.

Summit Entertainment launched a production blog, that is hosted on Tumblr and is run by producer Roberto Orci.

There will be guest updates from the cast and crew.

Here is the first welcome entry to the blog:

It took us all a second to realize Asa was right when he said Ender’s Game was an amazing book from “the late 1900s.”  We use that phrase all the time now, like, “Clinton was President in the late nineteen hundreds!”  Most of us read Ender’s Game when we were young and wondered when it would become a movie.  We never dreamed then that we would all be part of the team to bring it to the screen, nor did we realize the novel’s description of our world would be so prescient that its vision would still be unfolding before our very eyes today. And now, watching Asa bring a character to life who has been on our minds since our youth, we realize things happen for a reason.  We were waiting for him.  Make yourself comfortable, Ender! 

So head over to http://endersgameblog.tumblr.com/ and favorite the link to follow the production.

The Gavin Hood-directed film will star Asa Butterfield, Harrison Ford, Abigail Breslin, Ben Kingsley, Viola Davis and Hailee Steinfeld.

“Ender’s Game” will be in theaters March 15 next year.
