Summit Pushes ‘Ender's Game’ to November 2013

The adaptation of Orson Scott Card's novel will hit theaters in the same month that Summit has used to effectively launch its “Twilight” films

Summit is pushing back the release of "Ender's Game" into the fall of 2013. 

The studio thinks it has a hit on its hands with the adaptation of Orson Scott Card's novel, and will release "Ender's Game" wide on Nov. 1, 2013. It was originally scheduled to hit theaters on March 13, 2013.

That moves "Ender's Game" into a month that Summit has had great success with releasing films. Three of its four "Twilight" films have premiered in November and the fifth and final film in the vampire romance will also debut in that month when it arrives in theaters later this year. 

Lionsgate, Summit's parent company, recently had a smash hit with "The Hunger Games" in March, the month "Ender's Game" just vacated.

"Ender's Game" is a futuristic adventure about a young man who is drafted by the military to help save the human race. 

Harrison Ford, Ben Kingsley, Abigail Breslin and Asa Butterfield have been lined up to star in the film from writer and director Gavin Hood ("X-Men Origins: Wolverine").
