Freshly returned from the European press tour for Ender’s Game, Odd Lot Entertainment co-founder and owner Gigi Pritzker talked to ChicagoBusiness.com about her long journey bringing Ender’s Game to the big screen.

“He was an eighth-grader who had a hard time reading, but he read this book and liked it, and that intrigued me,” Ms. Pritzker says. “I love that there was this material that a 13-year-old boy and a 35-year-old woman could have a conversation about and really dig into the themes. And he said, ‘Wouldn’t it make a great movie?’

“From that day, Ms. Pritzker says, “I tried to get the thing made. And that little eighth-grade boy just had his first baby two nights ago and is getting his Ph.D. at Oxford. That’s how long it’s taken me to get this movie made.”

    I love that so many people involved are so passionate about it.
    I mean, not just “OMG, I love this book”, but they have stories which show that it profoundly impacted their lives. Even if I should be disappointed by the movie, I’ll still believe that they tried to make it the best movie they possibly could.

      I completely agree! It really reminds me of the LOTR films…made with so much love and passion by people who had personal connections with the source material. I’m expecting the end result to be similar in that there will be things we LOVE, that we think they got dead-on RIGHT, and things that we’ll concede were necessary in a book-to-film translation…and things that we’ll go, “WHAT?? WHY??” Not long to wait now!! 😀 <
