Legendary Pictures joins Gears of War July 25th, 2008

Vari­ety are report­ing that movie stu­dio Leg­endary Pic­tures will be co-financing and co-producing the Gears of War movie adap­ta­tion, to be directed by Len Wiseman.

It’s the first New Line project that Leg­endary has signed onto since the mini-major was folded into Warner Bros. ear­lier this year. Leg­endary has a deal to co-finance and co-produce at WB.

“Gears of War” has been set up at New Line since early last year with Marty Bowen and Wyck God­frey pro­duc­ing through their Tem­ple Hill ban­ner. “Gears” lead designer Cliff Bleszin­ski is exec pro­duc­ing and con­sult­ing for devel­oper Epic, which owns the rights.

Len Wise­man is direct­ing with Chris Mor­gan writ­ing the script. First draft was penned by Stu­art Beattie.

This is such a big risk to the game’s awe­some rep­u­ta­tion. I mean don’t get me wrong: I’m SO PSYCHED for the movie, and I do like the director’s style when it comes to action, and come on: we all wanna see Mar­cus cut­ting Locusts up with a chain­saw :P But pleas­ing the games masisve fan­base is not as easy as they might think it is. I mean, for as much as it’s a kick-ass shooter game, it’s also got a great story behind it, and I’m just wor­ried that intense action will take con­trol over the story. Still, it’s too early to start judg­ing so harshly, so I’ll just say: Gears of War movie? I’m already stand­ing in line ;)

Hey if you have seen Saw 2 when they are trapped in the house, you need the reallt tough guy from jail. He looks just like Dominic San­ti­ago! you need to show some seed­ers or RAAM. that would be sweet as hell! When is the movie com­ing out?

OMGWTFBBQ March 18th, 2009

Sigh. You guys, stop wor­ry­ing about the film. Yeah, it would be kick-ass. And for the one below me some­where, they could eas­ily repli­cate the Locusts, weapons and vehi­cles with elbow grease, lots of sheet metal and CG tech­niques for larg­ere Locusts (i.e. Corpsers, Seed­ers, Sko­rge etc.).

But, to join you all in your won­der­ous GOW ban­ter, I totally think John Tra­volta would make an awe­some Mar­cus. If he had a deeper voice. Other than that, he’s got the body and the face.

Cant wait until this movie comes out its goin to be such a gift.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! but i think the film should come out after the 3rd game so we can under­stand the hole story etc…
i say it would be very hard to fit 3 “game” sto­rys into one film that i say wont be longer than 2 and a half to tree hours long…??

Other key party suits on the day will see Michael Bisp­ing, Dan Miller, Todd Duf­fee, Mike Rus­sow, Diego Sanchez and John Hath­away par­tic­i­pate to see, who can occur out on lead­ing and be the con­front of the fol­low­ing UFC tournament.

KICK-ASS September 15th, 2010

i know he’s old but give him a pair of chops and i think rad­chek from star­ship­troop­ers would be good as mar­cus. hes got the voice and they could beef him up with a suit.
