News has been slow, and that’s an understatement — it’s been almost a year. I apologize that the content of the blog hasn’t been updated more often, but the truth of it is, there hasn’t been any news. The Gears of War movie has slipped into production hell; we can only speculate as to why — interest, finance and scheduling are some of the biggest contenders.
The video game adaptation as such is still in very early stages, despite having announced that Len Wiseman would direct; news that may no longer hold true given the length of time since the last update. We certainly won’t be meeting the rumored 2010 Summer release date, if production ramped up this coming January the best we could hope for is Spring 2011.
Some fan art
To lighten the mood a little I give you some fan art produced by Brian Speer, depicting Batista as Marcus and also featuring The Rock, inevitably, comments on this post will now turn into a casting discussion.
