Summit has tried to distance themselves from ENDER’S GAME author Orson Scott Card, in hopes that people would still want to watch ENDER’S GAME movie, but now Summit will once have to distance themselves a bit further from Card because that man just won’t shut up.
Via The Wrap, so what did that anti-gay do now? Card has compared President Barack Obama to Adolf Hitler and other dictators.
“Like Augustus Casear, Napoleon Bonaparte, Adolph Hitler, and Vladimir Putin, Barack Obama could become lifetime dictator without any serious internal opposition,”
“funding the Christian-killing Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt”
Card’s comments were written back in May but only discovered by the media recently.
But hey, this is a free speech country, so even someone like Card has the right to keep on running his mouth, unfortunately.
Summit doesn’t give a public response about Card’s anti-Obama comments. I think Summit is just going to have to hope for the best and that audiences would separate the movie from the author.
Maybe the days of Card’s books being adapted by Hollywood are now numbered.
