Lionsgate may have lost over fifty million dollars on Ender's Game, but they're still planning to extend the franchise. Giant Freakin Robot reported that Ender's Game may be turned into a TV show, which would allow for the multiple plot threads of 's mythology to expand over a lengthier stretch of screen time.

This does beg the question: why TV rather than the more traditional movie sequel extension? And which network will be prepared to shell out the big bucks for a futuristic franchise that failed to recoup its shooting costs at the box office? There are always methods of cost-cutting - less explosions, more focus on interpersonal relationships - but really, the project is still going to be pricey.

Creator Orson Scott Card is also currently writing further novels to develop the Enderverse, aiming for the Young Adult audience inkeeping with Lionsgate's interests in the YA category: The Hunger Games and Divergent are also high profile Lionsgate projects.

None of this is set in stone at this point, so we'll have to see what lies ahead for the Enderverse. Would you like to see an Ender's Game TV show or was the movie enough?
