It seems that the Gears of War movie has been doing the rounds for years now and in truth, it has. It was way back in 2007 the we first heard that we were going to be getting a Gears of War movie but five years on and we are still waiting for it.
So, what it happening with the Gears of War movie. The truth is, not a great deal to be honest. The fact does remain that Microsoft are adamant that they will be releasing a Gears of War movie and considering the fact that the games have taken over $1 billion in sales, with the new Gears of War: Judgment on the way, we feel positive that it will.
If you remember back to the last news we had on the Gears of War movie, Chris Morgan (Wanted) and Billy Ray (State of Play) had worked on a treatment for the script. However, it appears that they have been moved out and Stuart Beattie (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) has produced the latest version.
It is reported now that Creative Artists Agency are looking for a new home for the project after New Line continue to fail to deliver. If they can find a production company willing to put up the funds to make the film, we have strong belief that a Gears of War movie would be one of the best games to movie projects ever. Let’s just hope they get the right people on board.
