Gears of War is Getting a Movie, For Real This Time


For really reals.

Back in 2007, Epic announced that New Line Cinema had purchased the rights to make Gears of War into a movie, with Underworld director Len Wiseman set to helm the film at the time. Nothing ever came of that, and the movie ended up in development hell (as so many video game-based movies tend do do), but now it looks like The Coalition is dead set on trying to make that movie happen again, this time with Universal Studios.

At Gears of War Live earlier today, producer Rod Fergusson announced that they were partnering with the film studio to make a film based on the chainsaw-heavy shooter series. Of course, at this time, there’s no one attached to write or direct the film, but as soon as they get people, we’ll let you know. At the moment, they’ve only landed a pair of producers: Scott Stuber and Dylan Clark. Either way, hope you’re ready to watch some ugly monsters get bloody on your theater screen in the next couple of years.
