Chris Morgan has recently started to write the script for the new 'Gears of War' Movie, and has now started to create a list of people to take up parts in the film. With Marcus Fenix as the most important character.
don't make it suck like the doom movie
I guess the rock is going to lay the smack down on the movie critics.
A grammy? Neither can I, but I think he would do well; he has the size, and he's the best actor that I know with a strong build.
A grammy? Why is the Rock going to sing the theme song? I think you mean Oscar.
''you see tht lancer pick it up u locust.. shine that thing real nice .... now turn that sumbi*ch sideways and STICK IT STRAIGHT UP YOUR CANDY A** !!!....if ya smeeell what the rock is cooking...'' oh yeah i can see this happneing ... this would be awesome
hells yes the rock is the shiiit son, i just wish hed rock bottom someone
This movie is gonna blow just like MOST videogame-to-movie films do. What Epic SHOULD DO is just use the GEARS of WAR graphic engine from the game and a make a 2 plus hr movie. Give a limited IMAX screen release and then bring it straight to DVD/BLURAY. It would SELL like CRAZY!!!!
IF YA SMELLLLLLLL!!!!! WHAT THE ROCK, IS COOKIN? Locusts?
The fact that they may have a movie is an Epic Fail all by itself. The Rock just makes it that much worse.
And of course Samuel L Jackson playing The cole train. This will be epic.
The Rock(Johnson) has now become a pretty good actor...but I don't see him be Marcus Fenix, whatsoever. He doesn't have that same tough look and voice. Also, Marcus is white, not Latino. lol At least you would know they aren't getting some ridiculous meathead-bozo without any acting skills whatsoever.
gears + the rock = about right considering....
as Cole Train. I can't really see the rock as Marcus but more like Dom.
Lol As longest its not Vin Diseal starting as Marcus its all good but yeah The rock would makes sense as Marcus.
Sure, the Rock would "makes," sense, but what doesn't is your post. This isn't Youtube illiteracy Ville. Maybe your thought would garner a little more attention if you made it so that we didn't have to decipher what you're trying to say.
Kill joy, you just obviously can't read. The only thing that doesn't work, is that there is no punctuation. Anyway, Diesel doesn't have the mass behind him to play Marcus.
I said this on my other post but I really believe Mickey Rourke would be awesome as Marcus Fenix, he has the rough look and voice too.
Comment 2 As long as it isn't Vin Diesel, It's all good. But I think The Rock makes sense. Comment 2.2 You obviously cannot read, Killjoy. Everything works except the absence of punctuation. But anyway, Diesel doesn't have the build to play as Marcus. And yes, I'm fixing both of your comments, as it is quite apparent you have two accounts. How sad.
Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson are nearly the same size. But, I do think Vin Diesel would be better as Kim. Hey, Killjoy3000, this isn't a formal website nor English class. It's a gaming website.. So, can you do me a favor? Get over yourself, okay? Alright. Thanks! :)
Am I asking for an exquisite piece of writing sporting every field of writing that only English major's look for? No. I'm just asking him to actually make sense. If you can read past some idiotic babble that only Tom Hanks from the Davinci Code can pull off, then good for. I think it's safe to say that I enjoy games just as much as everyone else here. I also enjoy talking about games. But I do admit, I'm quite picky about English. It's a habit. But I can't stand it when it seems as though people are posting with cell phone keypads.
One might assume English isn't his first language...
I think this movie will be even worse than the games. Is there even enough plot to make a movie? and even so is there enough plot to make a GOOD movie? I personally don't think so.
If it's a big budget movie, it's all action/special effects. Indie films these days care about developing plots/characters.
How many movies these days actually have a good plot anyway? But I agree, it will probably suck. What do you mean it will be even worse than the games? The games are great.
Well I don't really like the games. I guess I just don't get "it". It just seems gratuitious to me. Well there's still some films that have good, devloped plots, even some blockbusters. But I get what you mean. cough*300*cough In fact won't a Gears Of War movie be 300 with guns?
If you don't like the games, no reason why you should even be clicking on this article.
Hey I'm just giving my opinion and I'm entitled to that. I'm not the only one either.
The Rock as Marcus Fenix? Eh, not so sure about that one. I'd rather see the Rock as the supporting character, such as Dom. I have no idea who should play Baird or Marcus, but Cole should obviously be his voice talent, the former Terry Tate.
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm... Edit: Ditto
why not have the person who plays cole train in the video games play cole train in the movie. He looks just like him and the voice is the same as from the games. http://www.youtube.com/watc... his real name is lester spreit
Haha. That video is awesome! But, hell yea, he'd be a good fit to play the Cole Train! :D
I wonder who cole will be his my favorite character.
...he has what my people call a "warrior's mentality" like Conan or The Punisher. Everyone else there acts like they don't want to be in the military when they clearly have a choice not to be there.
I hate that Hollywood is screwing up with game franchises and making them look bad on the big screen. I also hope that turd that makes Xmen doesn't get his hands on GOW.
Right, because everyone knows the reason why Doom sucked was because of the Rock. For the sarcasm impaired...That was sarcasm.
hmmm souds good
He's not a good actor and he doesn't even look the part. They need to use John Travolta, he doesn't sound like Marcus but he's by far the best choice.
he's too pudgy to play someone strong. And he has a whiny voice.
Get them other Wrestler/Movie Star wannabe John Cena He Can Play Dom And Mr kennedy can Play That [email protected] Braid or Bird or Whatever his Name is And i Suppose Mark Henry as Cole A Proper Bots Fantasy All the WWE Heroes in a Crap Film About a Crap Game on a Crap Console And Lets Bring in Ru Paul as the Locust Queen
I actually laughed pretty much of that comment. Mark Henry as Cole, LOLOLOLOL.
For being an erratic sony fanboy you sure know all the gears of war characters pretty well don't ya?
lmao right nelson. I bet ya did.
Everyone knows Gears characters. It's a very popular franchise. :)
Denzel Washington is also in it.
Lol this movie has Fail Sauce all over it. Although I do like some of Dwayne Johnson movies. I just think the movie as a whole just doesn't scream MOTION PICTURE. Shooter turned movie does not really makes since to me they really don't have a story to them. If you are going to make game to movie transition you stick with games that have really deep story elements and shooters just don't have that.
It shouldn't take much, just put to words some of the action, and put to action some of the words. Besides, they'll fix it in post.
another potentially good movie already a piece of crap before its even been created. hollywood is so pathetic
instant fail... however i acually liked Doom but thats just me. the pic of john travolta that the dude had above me looks PERFECT even though john is and oldie.
Johnson is a good actor. But Marcus isn't black so that would be a bad casting decision.
The Rock in this movie the guy cannot even act why not throw Hulk hogan in this movie as well
Actually, The Rock can act. I take it you haven't seen Southland Tales, or Walking Tall? He did a good job in both of those films.
what you said...
you dont even need to watch his movies to realize that... watch some of his wwe/ wwf promos on you tube (especially his last homecoming to wwe with goldberg and austin)... my god the guy can rip you a new one and make you run to your mamma in like 5 seconds... guyz like hhh, cena and hogan (especially hogan) .. are ruining it for the wwe to movies trasition ... but rock has done a great job coz he was always an entertainer first and wrestler second
I've seen Walking Tall, but not Southland Tales.. What's that about? Is it good? Who plays in it? Lol. Sorry for the questions. Haha. I think he did good in The Rundown, and The Scorpion King, as well. I think he's a good actor, too, I just don't think he fits Marcus very well.
Southland Tales is an entertaining mess of a movie by the director of Donnie Darko. I couldn't even begin to tell you what it's about, but it's worth watching if only for Johnson's performance in it. And Sarah Michelle Gellar plays a porn star which is a bonus.
Take a game with no story and make it into a movie with no story, directed by the guy who ruined Die Hard? Haha, can't wait for this PG-13 flopfest. When will people learn, just make it animated?
I'm not even a fan of Gears of War but the game does have a story. A good enough story to service what this movie will be. A brainless, violent action movie.
"just make it animated" That's a terrible, terrible idea
Animated does not mean "children's cartoon." And why is it a terrible idea? I'd take gorgeous gory 2d animation over bad CG any time.
They should go the appleseed route. They can't go wrong with the fanbase if they do go CGI like appleseed. All they need to do is work on the physics and annimation to make it really look lifelike. Appleseed came a long way in weight and annimation in CGI compare to FF advent children. As for rock. Marcus is white.
It could actually work http://i154.photobucket.com... But If you really want it to look like GeoW, try taking these guys : http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_x... http://imagesforum.doctissi... http://thefug.com/files/ima...
John Travolta?? You do realize that Mr. Travolta is almost 20 years older that Marcus is in the Gears' timeline. I wish they would just go with a crew of relatively unknowns like they did in the new Star Trek. That way they won't get distracted by catering to a specific actor and focus on a good storyline. Challenge my Brute in the free arena RPG at, http://flash80.mybrute.com It's always easier to settle it in the ring.
No, I will not challenge your Brute in the free arena RPG
The game has NO story so no matter who you put in the movie will suck.
Off Topic... Ryan reynolds should play baird. you know...because bairds a smart ass. EDIT on topic Marcus Fenix as Mickey Rourke
Please no.. although Ryan Reynolds does have the build for it and the attitude, he's never been in a watchable film EVER. He's the worst actor this century (and last). Annoying prick. Although I wouldn't want to turn the movie into a WWE-athon... John Cena looks a lot like Baird ;) Regarding The Rock, I think it's a good choice. He shouldn't be a main character but he'd be a great supporting guy. Maybe bulk him up a bit more and make him play Tai, got that Samoan look to him. He could probably play Dom tbh, but Dom is just a whiny little biatch.
ok ok... Now to find another blonde haired coky guy. :)
your actually right dom is a whiny little biyatch... i keep trying to figure out how she grows that beard... no idea
