Lions Gate Disavows Card’s Views on Gay Marriage

Lions Gate Entertainment Corp. disavowed “Ender’s Game” author Orson Scott Card’s opposition to gay marriage, saying his opinions are “irrelevant” to the movie based on his science-fiction novel.

Lions Gate, maker of the “Hunger Games” and “Twilight Saga” pictures, responded to calls for a boycott of the forthcoming movie with a statement yesterday citing a longtime policy of offering benefits to same-sex unions and the distribution of critically praised, gay-themed films including the Oscar-winning “Gods and Monsters.”
