"Ender's Game 2" Skips Cinemas, Comes To TV?

Speaking with analysts on Friday, Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer says that the studio has decided to "wait another week or two" before it makes a decision about whether to continue with the "Ender's Game" franchise.

The film adaptation of the Orson Scott Card novel has taken in $32.5 million in five days so far, along with another $9 million overseas. That performance is said to be "virtually on base" with internal pre-estimates.

Financed largely by OddLot Entertainment, even if a sequel doesn't go ahead Feltheimer says an "Ender’s Game" TV spinoff was under consideration - something that would make more sense as it would be far less costly.

The company now turns its attention towards its other franchises, namely this month's "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" release, along with next year's "Divergent".
