Steve Jablonsky will be the composer charged with creating the original score for the upcoming film adaptation of Ender’s Game.

Hypable originally reported in February that composer James Horner would score the film adaptation of Orson Scott Card’s popular novel, but we have now learned by way of EnderWiggin.net (who state they have confirmed this information with the film’s production company, Summit Entertainment) that plans have changed.

Composer Steve Jablonsky will be at the musical helm of this long-awaited movie adaptation. Jablonsky is known for his work on the scores of The Amityville Horror, several films in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre series, and most notably the Transformers movie series. Gamers will also recognize Jablonsky’s work on several popular video game series including Command and Conquer, Gears of War, and Prince of Persia.

A movie such as Ender’s Game relies heavily on the tone set by the music that plays in the background, making the choice of composer extremely important. Steve Jablonsky’s experience with orchestrating works for titles in this same genre may make him the ideal candidate to score this film.

Here’s a sample of Jablonsky’s musical style:


Ender’s Game is the story of a gifted child who is sent to Battle School, a training camp for Earth’s best and brightest children to learn to become soldiers in the war against Earth’s mortal extraterrestrial enemy, the Buggers.

Ender’s Game has been written and directed by Gavin Hood, and stars Asa Butterfield as Ender Wiggin. The film will also feature Ben Kingsley (Mazer Rackham), Harrison Ford (Colonel Hyrum Graff), Abigail Breslin (Valentine Wiggin), Hailee Steinfeld (Petra Arkanian) and Aramis Knight (Bean).

Ender’s Game is set for release on November 1, 2013. You can catch the Ender’s Game trailer in theaters with Star Trek Into Darkness later this month.

Does the score affect your enjoyment of the film as a whole?

    Ideally, I would’ve liked Michael Giacchino to score it but I hope Steve’s going to put a pretty epic score together.

    although the score is important, as long as it’s not completely horrible, it doesn’t take much away from my enjoyment of the film.

    I’ve read many of Orson Scott Card’s books. I read the first four of his “Ender” novels. I slogged through all five volumes of his “Homecoming Saga,” though admittedly being a bit puzzled by the Mormon imagery toward the end. I was a fan of his work … UNTIL it began coming to my attention that he harbored some pretty severe anti-Gay attitudes.

    And trust me, I did my homework. I read many of his pieces assailing the modern Gay rights movement. This wasn’t just a philosophical opposition to marriage equality for law-abiding Gay couples. This was a visceral animosity toward Gay people. Orson Scott Card is indeed the quintessential homophobe.

    Does Mr. Card has a right to express his views, however ugly they are? Of course he does. Likewise, the very persons he attacks have the right to draw attention to his views, so that people can make an informed choice about whether to throw their hard-earned money at him. I would rather not throw MY money at a guy who thinks I’m not worthy of the benefits and protections that Straight people have always taken for granted.
