While doing press for his recently released director's cut DVD of Troy, Petersen spoke to IGN and other outlets about his future projects: "I'm just, at the moment, developing three science fiction films. Two for Columbia. The Grays, based on Whitley Strieber's book. The other is called Uprising. And the other is Ender's Game," Petersen revealed. The filmmaker sees Ender's Game as "a very, very tricky adaptation and an incredibly fascinating concept, but I still think that one day, I will do Ender's Game. I just recently had a meeting with Orson Scott Card. But we're hanging in there and, yes, we will do that picture."
