Orson Scott Card Major adaptations: None Major works unfilmed: "Ender's Game" What gives? Despite writing one of the most influential science fiction novels of the last 20 years, the multiplexes have remained curiously Card-free. The closest the writer has come to a major blockbuster has been writing the script for the Xbox video game "Advent Rising." But now that the generation of teens who fell in love with the adventures of Card's Ender Wiggin are populating Hollywood's production offices, things may change. A Wolfgang Petersen-directed adaptation of "Ender's Game" was aborted at the last minute and the project is currently looking for a new home.
