Why is Orson Scott Card letting Gavin Hood handle Ender's Game?

Is he just hoping for a fat profit and doesn't care if his work is destroyed?

I dunno


But why does Ender's Game remind me of Evangelion?

You gotta know when to just cash out. I always tell my wife, if either of us gets famous we will make as much money as possible then just drop out once everyone gets sick of us.

I don't know, because it certainly shouldn't. Pacific Rim on the other hand...

Cause OSC is a homophobe who is intent on making the world a terrible place...

Pacific Rim is more like G Gundam meets Gear Fighter Dendoh

I don't see how OSC being homophobic has any impact on the movie unless there are homophobic undertones included or something.

People are really up in arms about OSC's beliefs and whether or not they will go see the movie because of them. I mean, I don't believe in Scientology, but I still go see Tom Cruise's movies.

I dunno, the whole thing seems like an over reaction.

Yeah I was pretty intrigued by the trailer until I saw the director credited as the toolbag who aborted Wolverine.

Unless this scores some good reviews, I plan to go nowhere near it.
