"Join us (Oddlot, Summit, Digital Domain, and KO) every wednesday for a behind the scenes look at #Endersgame," ‏tweets @boborci. That's prolific Roberto Orci, who when he is not sweating over "Star Trek" rewrites with producing and writing partner Alex Kurtzman, is now running a weekly production blog for the upcoming sci-fi film "Ender's Game," which is shooting in New Orleans. Production blogs are becoming de rigeur for marketing fantasy films that seek to connect moviegoers with exotic new worlds. If it's good enough for Peter Jackson...

Orci is producing the epic adventure, which Oscar-winning South African writer-director Gavin Hood ("Tsotsi") adapted from the Nebula and Hugo-winning1985 Orson Scott Card sci-fi novel about a brainy young strategist (Asa Butterfield) who is recruited by the International Fleet to help save the planet from another alien invasion. 

"Ender's Game" (March 15, 2013) reunites Butterfield with his "Hugo" co-star Ben Kingsley; the film stars a raft of other Oscar nominees: Harrison Ford ("Witness"), Viola Davis ("The Help"), Abigail Breslin ("Little Miss Sunshine") and Hailee Steinfeld ("True Grit").
