Writer on "Gears of War" Status

Writer on "Gears of War" StatusSubmit Comment
Screenwriter Chris Morgan recently chatted with MTV News to give an update on the upcoming big screen adaptation of the "Gears of War" video game, which has "Underworld" helmer Len Wiseman attached to direct.

"A draft went in and we're talking about it now and we're budgeting it out. It's looking incredibly good," he said. "I think the gamer side is going to be thrilled with it. All the stuff you want to see, we put that in there and then we blow it out a little more, even. Now it's just a matter of honing in on all of the character arcs and determining production types of things."

"Gears of War" centers on the members of Delta Squad, an elite squadron that consists of rough-and-tough soldiers. Players assume the roles of Marcus Fenix, an ex-convict, and Dominic Santiago, a hardened soldier, as the squadron wages war against an insurgent alien race called the Locust Horde a deadly collective that's already promised to surface heavily in the film.

"It's huge," said Morgan. "One of the things they're really talking about now is the budget of the film and how big of a spectacle this is going to be. My argument is, look at the underlying material. Look at the game and the scenario the fact that the world is being taken over by the Locust, it has to be huge."

At least the game story won't be destroyed, because basically there isn't.

I think this movie has a great chance to succeed. I mean it's no f*cking Uwe Boll directing, it's Len Wiseman. I loved the first two Underworlds and while Live Free or Die Hard wasn't better than the 1st one, it was awesome! As for Rainbow Six, that has been in hell for years but I hope they get it on soon, would be great.

Sigh...still waiting for Halo to get going. Halo has the potential to rival Star Wars, but it just sits on the backburner.

They can't make MOTHERf*ckING GEARS OF MOTHERf*ckING WAR PG-13. And yes, I do have to swear that much when mentioning GEARS! Because GEARS is the manliest f*cking game in the history of human f*cking kind! They have guns with chainsaws attached to them. Chainsaws! Not only is it heavy as hell and impossible to wield, but it gives away your position the moment you use it. Why? Cause it's a MAN'S gun, men don't do stealth. They invite their enemy to the fight and then they disembowel them! GEARS!!!! NIICE!
