New Line Signs Up For Gears Of War Film



According to a new report, New Line Cinema has won the rights to develop a film version of Microsoft and Epic's blockbuster Gears of War from the makers of Collateral and Derailed.

Variety is reporting that the film will be written by Stuart Beattie, screenwriter for thrillers Collateral and Derailed. According to IMDB, Beattie is also involved in an adaptation to driving game SpyHunter tentatively set for release in 2009.

Marty Bowen, former producer of The Nativity Story, and Wyck Godfrey, producer of a number of films including Alien Vs. Predator and Daddy Day Care will be producing the film through their Temple Hill Entertainment company.

Microsoft's last attempt at a cinematic franchise adaptation, with Peter Jackson's Wingnut Films committing to make a film version of Halo, ended late in 2006, with the two companies confirming that production work had been "postponed" following reports of Universal Studios and 20th Century Fox backing out of the big-budget feature.

You know how bad movies turn into games this'll be vice versa..look how horrible Resident Evil has done. Also more movies will 'try' and base stuff from Lost Planet into their movies..kinda cool.

There is a general equation in game and movie making.

movie to game = shit.

game to movie = shit.

It's not that it's hard coded that way it's just that movie makers don't know how to make a game into a movie, and game makers generally can't make a movie or TV series into a game.

The LOTR series was incredible gem in that the movies were awesome, and the games just as great. LOTR the Third Age was simply ingenious in its implementation. It didn't follow the traditional mediocrity of sticking to the original story line. After beating it 5 times I still play it off and on.

If they want to pull off a good Gears of War movie they need a real A cast with the perfect director for it's genre, and some great writers. If those requirements aren't met it's just going to be another Doom.

HEy! Doom was great .. its because of religous people that made it bad -_- they swiched the story to Aliens instead of Demons from hell because of Religous people.
