Buggers Beware! Ender’s Game Is Blogging!!!

Despite the fact that Orson Scott Card is a raging homophobe, there’s no denying that Ender’s Game is one of the classics of science fiction literature. In it, a young boy named Ender Wiggin is taken to Battle School where is gifts as a strategist are revealed. His talent is used in the ongoing conflict with the “buggers” – an alien race who won’t stop fronting on the human race. It’s “sequel” Speaker for the Dead, is one of the greatest books I’ve ever read. Period.

After decades of planned adaptation, the book is finally coming to the big screen with Hugo‘s Asa Butterfield as the lead, Gavin Hood (Tsotsi) directing, and Roberto Orci producing. The crew has started a Tumblr so we can all follow along with the production at home. This excites me more than Taco Tuesdays or Pizza Mon-Fridays.

Orci will be the one maintaining the blog, with cast and crew dropping guest posts along the way. Christ, I hope Harrison Ford gets drunk and blogs on it. Not that I condone drunk blogging *ahem*.
