While I’m sure there are those of you who would just love to play Gears of War on a huge movie theater screen – or at least something larger than your 42-inch television, New Line has announced it is in production for a live action version of the game that will appear in a local theater near you.
Set on the planet Sera, the game thrusts players into a battle for survival between humans and a race of creatures that surface from the bowels of the planet known as the Locust Horde. Players assume identities of soldiers on Delta Squad as they fight to save Sera’s inhabitants.
Len Wiseman is set to direct the flick based on a script by Chris Morgan, the man behind Wanted, and the upcoming Fast and the Furious 4.
Video game adaptations are a tricky lot with Hollywood and gamers. On the one hand, something like the Resident Evil franchise has done quite well, while others, like Doom, have totally sucked. And let’s not even get into those Pokemon movies.
What are your thoughts? Will Gears of War rock, or tank?
