Gears Movie put on Hold? October 4th, 2007

The IESB are report­ing that Len Wise­man is no longer involved with the Escape from New York remake, which at first glance would imply that he plans to work on GoW. How­ever, through IESB’s con­tacts, it is now rumored that he is not involved in the video game adap­ta­tion either, and, more alarm­ingly, that New Line Cin­ema might pull out altogether:

Wise­man is also off the video game adap­ta­tion and New Line Cin­ema will most likely not move for­ward with the film at all. Our source is say­ing that the stu­dio has con­cerns with bal­loon­ing bud­get of the film.

We’ll have to wait and see what hap­pens on this one folks. Thanks for the heads up Philip.

Sorry, I don’t think I would just give it a five star rat­ing, just because it’s Gears.
If it’s good, yes.
But fan-boyism? For shame, man.

I think that Gears of War will be the best game to ever be made into a movie. Even though it is put on hold doesn’t mean that it won’t come out great. I would think that this movie would get a five star rat­ing. The only prob­lem is what the direc­tor decides. We don’t know what the direc­tor would do to this movie. Might not fol­low the story line for all we know. The parts though that I would like to see is the parts where Mar­cus uses the Ham­mer of Dawn on the Berserk­ers. That would be sweet!

I agree, for this movie to be a 5 star action movie, first off, You gotta have Mar­cus, don’t change the char­ac­ters, keeps dom: his best friend. Maybe show the pro­louge, show why mar­cus was thrown into jail, or just put together gears of war 1 and 2. I want to see soem chain­saw action, a cou­ple boss fight scenes, Espe­cialy Gen­eral Ramm, the locust queen, and maybe a shit­load of boomers. I wanna see so much action, blood and vio­lence that it’s not funny, keep the con­tent of the game in it too. I wanna hear dom and mar­cus get pissed and cuss out the locusts, I want to see Mar­cus and Dom’s back­ground, I still haven’t fig­ured out what Dom is, he looks por­ti­can, I wanna know for sure. Throw in Barid and Cole.I wanna see how cole is always bein cocky and Barid scarred shit­less and gets picked on, by dom cole and mar­cus. And what hap­pend to Tia? He had shot him­self in the head with a shot­gun, why though? I wanna see why he did, and how he was torchered, and Dom’s wife, I wanna see how she was torchered, And keep the focus mainly on Mar­cus and Dom, don’t just go back anf forth so, we get con­fuesed on chap­ters, I’m pretty sure every­one wants to see this action. Show carmine get­tign sniped in the head. and put Kim i nthere too, I want to see how you guys can show him get­ting stabbed by a 10 foot tall guy (Gen­eral ramm). Just the basic back­ground knowlage.
