Oddlot Wants to Keep Ender’s Game on Schedule
In light of Digital Domain bankruptcy and pending auction, Oddlot Entertainment has asked a Delaware judge to protect the Ender’s Game movie. Oddlot (OLE) filed motions in the Delaware bankruptcy asking U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Brendan Shannon to require that all of its contracts for Ender’s Game be considered as a single package and not sold off piecemeal to a buyer in a bankruptcy auction.
It is of paramount importance to OLE that the visual, digital and animation effects for Ender’s Game be completed according to schedule,” said a motion filed by Oddlot. “Given the importance of the assumption of all of the agreements to the success of Ender’s Game, OLE is particularly concerned that a buyer may agree to assume all of the agreements at the auction… only to turn around and assume only certain [of them] after the sale.” Additionally, Oddlot asked the judge to order that they be allowed to attend the auction, and that Digital Domain be required to consult with Oddlot regarding the sale.
