SDCC 09: Gears of War Movie Churning

Director Len Wiseman (Live Free or Die Hard) and writer Chris Morgan (Wanted) appeared at Epic Games' Gears of War panel to discussing the upcoming feature film based on the popular videogame franchise. It was clear by the end of the hour-long panel that production on the Gears of War feature film was in the earliest stages. In fact, there's been no casting and there were no production stills or conceptual art to offer. Still, Wiseman and Morgan spoke about their philosophy regarding the movie and the director dispelled a recent Internet rumor regarding casting of the lead role.

Ron Perlman for marcus, just dye his hair a darker color and there you got a bad a$$.

f it make kate the side roll and brad pitt as beard.... oh yea, brad impressed me in snatch and doesn't mind playing a lil of the side roll.

not going to happen but just a thought. he's a good actor and can bring always a convincing character to the roll

this movie is gonna suck some huge balls

watch hollywood add its own stupid twist to it

mrv3215442d ago

I don't know, Gears 2 had some strange twists and a plot that went places.... bad places.

This is big news some played Gears 1 and 2 and though 'Such great story, I really felt for Moira(or who ever) and the voices where awsome' Gears of War is famous for it's combat which is awsome... no doubt it's the story and online which where it's major flaws...

kevinx10005442d ago

i have yet to see a good movie of a game, but my expectations are prety high for this one.

Elven65441d ago

Mortal Kombat is probably the best transition so far and that came out over a decade ago!

Kleptic5441d ago (Edited 5441d ago )

I thought Silent Hill was at least watchable...although story wise it made very little sense (they spend 10 minutes at the end attempting to explain what is going on, but it opened up more holes than it filled)...

but yeah...most game movie suck horrendously...MK was ok, but that was mostly because i was like 12 and had no real idea what a 'good' movie really was at that point...if I watched it again it would probably be unbearable...Doom was the biggest disppointment...but I knew it would be when i first heard that they were omitting the 'hell' part of the story in exchange for alien research or something...to keep it safer or whatever...bad move, the movie then sucked...it sucked more than Doom 3...and THAT is saying something...

San Frandisco5441d ago

Just be glad its not Uwe Boll directing it.. oh god!

Elven65441d ago

Uwe get a bad rep, their are plenty of Hollywood directors out their who are far worse then him. Take for example the guy who made Doom....nuff said.

4pocalyps35441d ago

true but i don't even know that geezers name, whereas uwe bolls name is stuck in my head....little bastrd

Kleptic5441d ago

Uwe is terrible...

normally what happens in film making is that if you make a terrible movie that reaches a large audience...you are pretty much done making major films...you then get kicked around in the indie film arena for a while, either become successful in that...or end up being demoted even further into porn or television...

Uwe makes terrible film after terrible film...yet still gets support from his crazed German producers...who are good at marketing...and are able to turn a profit on his complete trash movies...its not that everyone is out to get him...he is simply awful, but has support from people that know how to make money off of him...

Nihilism5441d ago

what is it with all these god damn game based movie ideas....no movie should be based on a fps, or in the gase or gears, a cover based shooter with no story at all, final fantasy was epic and has a rich story and the series has sold like what 150million copies?, making a movie on that was a good idea ( although not executed well), i know they should make a movie based on the game f.e.a.r and call it The Ring, that would be Sweet......
