Could the 'Ender's Game' sequel end up on TV?
Ender Wiggin's future is in danger.
With Lionsgate’s pricey adaption of Orson Scott Card's controversial sci-fi novel "Ender’s Game" doing decent -- but hardly stellar -- business, the studio is unsure of the proposed sequel's fate.
During a quarterly studio conference call on Friday, Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer said that the studio will "wait another week or two" before making the decision on a sequel.
Interestingly, Feltheimer also indicated that the "Ender’s Game" story may continue in a TV spinoff, according to Variety.
"Ender’s Game" was directed by Gavin Hood and stars Asa Butterfield, Harrison Ford, Hailee Steinfeld, and Ben Kingsley.
It has taken in $32.5 million in its first week at the domestic box office, with overseas ticketing adding another $9 million.
Despite its unconventional ending, the original book spawned a number of sequels, among them "Ender's Shadow" which recaps many of the events in "Game," but is told from the point-of-view of Ender's battle school classmate Bean. Meanwhile, the indirect, and far more radical, sequel "Speaker For the Dead" takes place some 3,000 years after the first book, and features a middle-aged Ender.
It's not known if the sequel would be an adaptation of one of those books, or a new story featuring Ender.
