Len Wiseman reveals a bit about the Gears Of War movie.
and then ditch it afterwards or it goes into oblivion and no one ever talks about it. I mean there was a Halo movie being made? or a MGS4 movie? There needs to be 2-hour complete CG movie, now that would be cool, but no one seems to make them except Pixar.
Dreamworks makes CGI movies, Disney did but farms all their stuff out to Pixar now since the company wants to bring back animated films, which is good since Disney is only Disney with the stuff that made them famous, what on earth was the old CEO thinking when he decided to shut down ALL studios focused on 2D animation in favor of 1 3D animation studio????
And I recently read on IGN that Warner Brothers is pushing Lost Planet with a budget of over 150 million Of all the movies to get a green light, they pick an above average game with a so-so story as opposed to MGS, Halo, GTAIV, God of War etc. I can name a hundred games that deserve to be made into movies, but instead, Hollywood keeps picking random games to adapt
Studying animation at university we keep on being told '2D Animation is dying'. Nah, its not dying in popularity, but the industry thinks it is due to not risking the production of 2D. This is very annoying as I want to head up into the production of the 2D animation industry, concept/writer/director and this damned economy is making it worse due to 2D being closed left right and centre due to the easier level of labour for CGI or Stop Motion. The only feature legnth 2D animations you'll see now are probably indie films shown as festival that depress you to heck. Thats what I've found anyway.
Personally, I hate CG movies with a murderous passion. And I don't think game-to-movie is a good idea. Silent Hill was good (not GREAT, but still a good movie), but the rest was garbage. I can't even start to imagine how they could possibly make a MGS movie. Just look at MGS4. The end of the game alone (all incredibly important and incredibly awesome stuff) lasts 2 hours. That's just the end of the game. They simply CANNOT compress all this in a movie.
Lost Planet to me was an awesome game!!!
yeah squeeze every possible cent out of the franchise and don't miss to push it into "epic" so more people get aware of your console.
Could Marcus' character actually get...dare I say it...interesting?
I heard Rick Moranis will be playing his role.
There's been talks about a Uncharted movie too. I would see this though.
as sweet as the games are i can really see hollywood butchering the movies like allways :)
umm ucharted movie o u mean Indiana Jones
A Gears of War movie would be awesome but when are they releasing it? 2019?
"I think an uncharted movie would blow the living crap out of Indiana Jones" Nice Try. Try Later.
I really can't see this doing very well... Really I mean no offense to gears fans. The game was innovative and all that. Great game for the systems release... I feel this movie won't offer much in terms of story or tech... Just a bunch of blood and dark rooms and... Something like the resident evil movie but not as good... Bad actors and... I hate to predict gloom and doom but good things need to be left alone and not milked into cheese...
I heard Uwe Bowell is stepping up to direct Gears of War. ;)
If it is les wiseman I have hope... Uwe needs to just kill over already...
Gears of War movie lol, it would be Max Payne movie v.2.0, but the difference is that Max Payne games atleast have plot.lol, 100% FLOP
nice crystal ball you have there, can i try. *hands over crystal ball* ahh yes killzone 2 100% flop. .see please dont call a film or game a 100% flop, if you know absalute nothing about it. you make your self look like an fool.
I'll kick Uwe Bowls asssssssssss!
No game deserves this fate!
The shallow and cliche characters of the games should make for awesome summer movie fare. But will it be any good is the question?
I wanna see Bioshock movie directed by Quentin Tarantino or Robert Rodriguez, though. Words cannot begin to express all the awesomeness this would bring
AND STILL the acting would be EFING TERRIBLE in soooo many ways and levels of rookie actors- M.fenix is not the kind of character that is ment to be portrayed in a movie... FACT: the acting will suck elephant [email protected] regardless who directs it. the only game/movie adaptation that i thought was awesome was silent hill (tho the Little girl had some bad acting parts)- also,imo i think Uncharted would be a badass adaptation depending on who directs it of course-
I'd fully agree with your comment, but I don't think Uncharted needs to be a movie. The persona of Nathan Drake in the games is real enough for me. I think if an actor played Nathan then when going back to playing the games the illusion of Nathan being real will be broken. The portrayal of Marcus Fenix in the Gears film could be better than his persona in the games and maybe flesh him out a little bit, could be healthy and it won't really matter for the games, because theres no way He's a believable character in those. I do however think that the basic plotline of the first Metal Gear Solid game would be a good choice for a movie though because of all its homages to 80s action movies. It just doesn't need to be churned out fast, or that would ruin it. Also, Kurt Russel for Snake, you know its right.
@Cajun Kurt is the perfect Snake cause his character Snake Plissken from the movie Escape From New York was the inspiration for Solid Snake. Bubbles for you. :)
Something doesn't add up here. See in the games, the story really was the weakest part of the game, especially the first one, so how in the world are you going to make a movie out of it? This has flop written all over it. What works in games does not work in movies period. I just hope its not as bad "Doom"(Movie, not game)
Gears of War: Man Parade No thanks
A trilogy? Let's see if the first one gets off the ground or the 2nd two will be direct to video.
This is one of the stupidst ideas I've ever heard. There is hardly any plot to work with. I mean, wth are they on. It's almost as bad as the mario cartoon series. At least it might have some good action scenes.
Hmmm...Movie of a Video game, I don`t know...Will Russel Crowe Or Johnny D be in it? It might do well-
So how are they going to make a 1 1/2 hour movie?
I think Batista should play Marcus Fenix.
