I talked a little while ago about Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged being essentially unfilmable (but about to start filming anyway). I could kvetch for hours about how unfilmable Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game is, and how ill-fated any potential adaptation would be. Apparently Wolfgang Petersen, long attached to direct the project, has decided that he agrees -- or, more likely, he's just tired of waiting for the thing to get off the ground. According to sci-fi blog io9, Petersen is officially off the long-in-the-works Ender's Game movie, but the producers are busy looking for a new director and mulling casting possibilities.
