It is still trapped in what we lovingly refer to as ‘development hell.’ A few years ago, it looked like it might get the long-sought greenlight with Jake Lloyd (frickin’ Jake Lloyd!) attached to play Ender.
“Thank God, the Jake Lloyd travesty did not occur. But when the picture fell

“Wolfgang Petersen is now ostensibly attached to direct, but Wolfgang
Petersen is attached to direct many, many things ranging from BATMAN VS.
SUPERMAN to the traffic at the intersection of Sunset and Highland when
school lets out in the afternoon.
“Not to be the bearer of sad tidings for poor Ramesh, but if I were him I
wouldn’t hold my breath.”
