For decades I’ve sited this as an example of Hollywood’s odd failure to exploit the wealth of great SciFi/Fantasy novels, instead endlessly recycling lifeless high concepts. In that, Ender’s Game was a bestselling fast paced story of approximately movie complexity. Now they just have to adapt Hyperion and I’ll be fulfilled! I used to joke that it would cost a billion dollars. It still might!
