At today's Gears of War panel at Comic-Con, Cliff Bleszinski from Epic Games was asked about the Len Wiseman directed movie based on the IP. Bleszinski, the executive producer on the Hollywood adaptation, says he has high hopes for the film.
but don't forget the steroids!
I'm going to go out on a limb here and say the movie will have a group of space Marines and some Locust, but that's where the similarity ends because the story in the game was weak...even Epic admitted it.
I think the movie will be a combination of Gear 1 and 2 and some other stuff. They will write a movie script. Space Marines? WTH
The Rock as Cole. =.=
I can imagine Barry Bonds with a chain saw. ._.
It's gonna suck. I just know it.
Like all video games movies. Except for Halo(if it manages to come out), since Peter Jackson is on board.
will it be brown and heavily normal mapped?
Vin Diesel has to be one of the space marines! They should never make game movies. Look what happened to Mario the movie. That was one of the worst and unrespectable movie i've ever seen.
but Vin Diesel would make a nice kratos.
Batista from WWE looks like Marcus Pheonix
Dominic Purcell looks like marcus http://www.femalefirst.co.u...
wrestler-free? Wrestlers are actually very skilled actors if you ask me,much like super trained comedians with stuntman skills. The total package. The fact is they play mostly in action movies which are made to generate money and not critical success. That reinforces certain stereotypes. Put one in a brilliant movie and they will probably have to up the ante and act well.
The only game-movie that looks good this year so far is Max Payne. I can see the God of War movie being good if they don't **** it up ala Residnet Evil style.
Now we can appreciate the fact that because there wasn't an in depth story in the game, the plot is very open for possibilities for the movie. An open ended script has potential, just really hope they don't eff it up...
Very true. With Gears, there's a very small chance you can say "I heard that before". The gears universe is a lot bigger than what they showed in the games based off of what they say in the game.
then use pro bodybuilders!!!, it has happened before(arnold,surge,others) and some of the movies were pretty good like terminator and others.
making the characters super buff was a mistake in the forst place
So Cliffy B. is Marcus Fenix right?
You know he doesn't like being called that right? Now he will have to kick you in the balls.
Look it's CliffyB in disguise. Anyway, you weren't there for that discussion were you? It's not really Cliffy's choice what he want's to be called.
If not wrestlers then who could you use that would even look close to any of the characters? Pro body builders is you next step Ronnie Coleman as Cole maybe but can he even act maybe, maybe not, I have to agree with the suggestion with Batista as Fenix but i don't think he could act the part. You certainly don't want some wimpy looking actor play a character that looks as if steroids is part of his daily nutritious breakfast. Some of the wrestlers today are actors in the ring and do a good job at it the Rock has made one hell of a career in movies and some of his movies are not that bad either so if i were Cliff i wouldn't t say no to using them
Ronney Coleman as Cole. Batista as Marcus Fenix? Sounds pretty good to me.
I can't see itlol
Looking at you, Hulkster. Now I'm not against some wrestlers being in the movie, but only if they can act, and the rock has proved that indeed some wrestlers can act beyond the male soap opera known as the WWE! But I would have the Rock in the movie somewhere, because that would automatically attract more viewers, but if you ask me, to make this movie's success more likely, you would have to find the absolute right actor to play "The Train, baby!" Maybe Jamie Foxx, because Foxx is funny and charismatic, and although much smaller than what people would expect the train to be in real life, unless the actors are injecting themselves daily with steroids, you will never get guys that big (let alone that can act) on screen! So, my early pics are: Marcus Fenix: Sylvestor Stallone.........Lol, j/k Unknown actor, I would vote Dom: The Rock The Train: Jamie Foxx Baird: You need another guy that is funny and charismatic That Marine drill sargent from "Full metal Jacket" as the commander Lawrence Fishburne as the bald officer that gets killed right before Fenix takes command.
Damn it! I was hoping to see Colin Delaney play Marcus Fenix.
Use Batista for Fenix, and use Ray Lewis for The Cole Train!! Not sure bout any of the other characters.
batista looks like dom he has the beard and everything
