'Ender's Game' ET invasion movie: first photo

Robbie Graham Silver Screen Saucers

Ender's Game producer Roberto Orci (whose credits include alien/UFO movies Transformers 1 & 2 and Cowboys and Aliens) has updated the film's Production Tumblr with a teaser photo of Ender Wiggin (played Asa Butterfield of Hugo fame) and his monitor implant.

Orci says...

Though Ender
s world is one worth saving, it sometimes comes with a price. The novel was amazingly prescient about a great many things: remote controlled drone wars, the internet, the influence of blogging, hand held computing tablets like the I-Pad, and of course, electronic surveillance implants. Implanted tracking and monitoring chips are no longer a science fiction concept. They exist now. And one day, they may be as advanced as the monitor implanted into Ender, which allows Colonel Graff to see through his eyes and know: HE’S THE ONE.


Ender’s Game is a big screen adaptation of Orson Scott Card’s classic – and, until now, “unfilmable” – sci-fi novel about a future Earth under threat of invasion by a race of insectoid aliens known as 'Formics'. Set seventy years after an epic human/alien war, the story follows the character of Ender Wiggin, a young boy whose tactical genius offers hope for humanity in the face of a new Formic invasion.

Currently filming under the direction of Gavin Hood for a November 1, 2013 release, Ender’s Game stars Ben Kingsley, Harrison Ford, Hailee Steinfeld, Abigail Breslin and Viola Davis.
