Gears of War Lands a New Producer

<i>Gears of War</i> Lands a New Producer

There has been talk of making a Gears of War movie for years, but so far fans have nothing to show for it. That might be changing soon, as a new producer has won the rights and looks to be charging full speed ahead in bringing the movie to the big screen.

According to Variety, Ted and Identity Thief producer Scott Stuber has partnered with Epic Games to bring the movie to life. He and Epic are developing a script for the Gears of War film, although no writer, director, stars or distributor are attached. Universal Pictures does have a first-look deal, but that’s no guarantee.

In 2007, Stuart Beattie was supposed to write the Gears of War script for New Line with Len Wiseman directing. Things fizzled out, and Epic has been looking for someone else to produce the movie ever since. After taking meetings with people like Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Chernin Entertainment, that person ended up being Stuber.

Gears of War follows the adventures of Marcus Fenix’s Delta Squad as they defend the planet Sera against alien races like the Locust and the Tambent. The first game was released in 2006 and the fourth and latest, Gears of War: Judgment, debuted March 19.
