If a Gears of War movie was ever made, the choices for actors are overwhelming. Koku Gamers list is one that could suffice, but do you agree.
Wow that would be a perfect combo got all the big names
As much as I'd love Kate Beckinsale and Scarlett Johansson to be in the movie, I don't see how them in a war action movie
Not too shabby, especially liked the Jack role :D
Lol, Arnold as Jack, now that's just pure funny.
Gerald Bulter as Marcus Fenix, that would be fine to me.
I know lol, Gerard Butler is one of my favorite actors last decade.
Gerald Bulter as Marcus Fenix? I wouldn't mind that.
I was hoping no one would say Batista from wrestling, that would have been crap.
lmfao @ Chuck Norris and Arnold :DDD would be a good cast though.
Wow pretty solid list. Wouldn't mind Gerald at all either. Put Scarlett Johanson in it and it's a done deal.
Michael Clarke Duncan as Cole, not LL Cool J. The man is much more bad-ass than that loser LL :P
Duncans personality isn't as big as Coles though.
I've always thought Batista would be a good actor. Hes intelligent and charistmatic, and very well spoken. Hell if Cena and Dibiase can make movies, I reckon hes worth a shot.
That's a dumb list. Neither Gerard Butler, nor Benjamin Bratt look ANYTHING like these characters. Also, Paul Walker is too small for that role. "The Rock" fits much better with Dom, "Hulk Hogan" with baird and a beefed up version of Fred Durst would look a lot more like Marcus. They also fit more with the quality of a videogame movie anyway. Please don't insult moderately good actors with these sub-par roles again. @below, lol, whatever makes you happy.
At Baum. Thank got you dont write articles or do lists, you're terrible.
Hmm, Gerard Butler as Marcus Fenix...
http://popbytes.com/img/INF... http://popbytes.com/autoimg... http://popbytes.com/autoimg... Yeah, that Butler is a helluva spittin' image of the guy, lemme tell ya. You people are so media gazed it's not even funny. You'll like who the media tells you to like.
Wow bro, you really are g*ay(happy) i mean, you went as far as to get pics of him. You know they make the people get into shape before putting them in. Also he is fine the way he is. Don't hate Gerard, he is tight.
I'm g*ay (happy)? I'm g*ay (happy) because he's not talented and he's not the man for the job but you're not gay because you think he's "tight" hahaha... Tight as in what? He's got a tight what? Please, there's some h*m*erotic behavior going on here and it's not coming from me.
He's been in some pretty awesome movies 300, Law Abiding Citizen, Gamer
What are you, ten? Those movies aren't good... Those movies are terrible. The Gamer? hahaah, oh please. Good for what? Killing and action? LEt's talk scripts, shall we? Wanna talk good script writing with me? Those movies are junk. Junk sales and talent is over looked in Hollywood, kid. You might think those movies were super duper bad ass because MTV glorified them for you. It's all rap, hard metal and action with you kids. It's so sad. Good is "Brothers" Brilliant script. Brilliantly acted. That's good. Good is "No Country For Old Men" That's good. Good is "Ice Harvest" That is good. That is brilliant cinema. Not this junk you're under the impression is good because of explosions and cussing. Because of story. That is what makes good good. Go away.
Killing and action. That sounds like Gears to me doesn't it? You wouldn't seriously expect a good story from a Gears movie would you? That's just be dumb.
To be one of the main Gears soldiers, these actors are going to have to spend twice as much time as the dudes from 300 and eat staroids every day to look like that. Delta is the most jack bunch of soldiers I've seen in any game minus Chris Redfield in RE5 and Brick in Boderlands.
the actors who played the punisher from both the recent punisher movies are a good fit? thomas jane or ray stevenson? those movies are not necessarily the best, but the characters potrayed by those actors seem to suite marcus fenix well.
I agree great list, but change Cole and Victor actors with someone else, they just seem to fit right. EDIT: What about Vin Disel as Cole? He could boast the same mentality, but not look exactly like him.
Pretty much hit the nail on the head
I think Nick Chinlund (Toombs from Riddick films) would make a much better Marcus.
Cole can be played by his voice actor. Lester Speight
He looks and acts just like him. He was great in the Gears of Wars special features. Gerald Bulter as Marcus Fenix would work for me. Benjamin Bratt is to old to play Dom Santiago I could see Paul Walker as Baird. Kate Beckinsale would work as Maria (oop let me wipe the drool from my chin). :) Scarlett Johansson is nice eye candy but sucks as and actress, no thanks. And Sam Elliott would make a great Dizzy
Scarlet Johanssen makes my penis sneeze...
Paul Walker is too much of a [email protected] to play Baird
The only way this movie would be anything close to decent is if they cast Woody Allen as Marcus Fenix.
That......would be f*cking awesome :D
The perfect cast is no one, because Gears of War would make a horrendous movie.
Nah dude 90minutes of dom screaming maria sounds pretty epic to me. MAAAAARRRRIAAAA!!!!!!!!!!
Yes because when casting a movie, if the charactors bald, the actor HAS to be bald. I mean theres no way you could alter the actor somehow to match the charactor if he wasnt. Technology, (or hairdressing) hasnt evolved that far yet. /sar If hes blonde the actor must be blonde right. Beard, must have a beard. Hell I think they chose Gerad just because hes in the same pose.
Actually no, Gerard Butler is a fine actor, a bad ass and knows his stuff.
I'm not saying hes not good wouldnt do a good job. I'm just pointing out, the imagination they put into these list seem to be just looking for a photo that matches the game charactor. Vin Diesel must be spewing the bald guy went to someone else, thats usually his role, as if another actor couldnt just shave his head.
Neil Patrick Harris should be Baird
the first Saw movie at the very end...should play Dom. The one that started killing everyone....
Gears of War is like a made for Si-fi or, I'm sorry... Sy-fy movie. It's lame. It's low budget. It's cheesy and it has absolutley no worth to the market. This movie will go over like a led Balloon.
all they need...like any movie...is a Lord of The Rings type budget...
Whoops, wrong spot. Supposed to be a reply.
Whatever they do, they better cast Paris Hilton as a locust underling.
I would replace LL Cool J for Terry Crews for the role of Cole.
I still think the movie should be CG and use the voices from the game
If they keep Marcus's voice, theres no way I'm watching it. Any more grizzly and he'd be a bear. I've never been so turned off a game by the voice acting before, it was really weird. I just couldnt stand it. And I've played Resident Evil.
Anya looks like a carbon copy of Angelina Jolie.
Michael Duncan as Cole Train (the big black guy who played on The Green Mile).
They all need to gain about 150 pounds but sure, could work.
ving ryhmes as cole would be a better fit. i know im watching the movie though. im a huge gears freak.
Because the video game had no story. AND for the record, I am NOT hating on Gears, I love the game, but that is the truth. On the bright side, that gives plenty of room to develop your own story as a movie director. :)
