The Gears Of War Film Has Found Its Writer
Video games being adapted into movies is certainly not a new practice, but creating something that is not only faithful to the source material, but also pleases the fans is a completely different story. Universal Studios will be giving it a go with the upcoming Gears of War film based on the popular franchise, and the project has just found its writer.
The Wrap recently reported that F. Scott Frazier will be writing the inbound film. Frazier is possibly best known for writing Collide and xXx: Return of Xander Cage, and will now be given the opportunity to put together a story surrounding Marcus Fenix and gang. As for who will be taking on the lead role, Dave Bautista thinks he is perfect. “I’ve been begging for this part for years,” he said earlier this year. “This is my destiny to play Marcus Fenix.”
The Gears of War film, of course, will be based on the video game series of the same name from Epic Games. Co-creator Rod Fergusson and Dylan Clark (Oblivion, Planet of the Apes series) are tapped to produce, with Scott Stuber (Identity Thief, Ted) set to executive produce.
There is no release date set for the Gears of War film, or who will even be in the movie, but keep it tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers as this story develops. If it’s other entertainment goodness you’re after, check out the following:
