Len Wiseman on "Gears of War" Story and Casting

Len Wiseman on "Gears of War" Story and CastingSubmit Comment
Director Len Wiseman (Live Free or Die Hard) and writer Chris Morgan (Wanted) appeared at Comic-Con to talk about the upcoming "Gears of War" film, stating that even though casting has yet to begin, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson will not be cast.

"A 'Doom' connection would not be smart for us," Wiseman said bluntly, adding that the way to find the right person to play the lead role of Marcus Fenix is not to "throw a bunch of strongmen into the ring and see who comes out victorious. I'm looking for an actor for the role and then [I'll] put him into shape."

Wiseman also mentioned that he already has someone in mind to play the part of Maria, the doomed wife of second-in-command Dominic Santiago. "If I can convince [Kate Beckinsale] -- and I think I have a shot -- I'd love to see that," he said.

Regarding the plot, Morgan said that it won't strictly follow that of the games. "Emergence Day is making its way into the film. That will be big." For those unfamiliar with the games, Emergence Day is when the enemy Locusts rose from underground, revealing themselves to the human occupants of the planet Sera. The Gears games take place long after Emergence Day and so it is something no one has seen fully realized.

Wiseman added that he would like to see female COGs (the elite military soldiers in Gears of War) in the film. In the two "Gears" games we see only male COGs on the field of battle. "I'd love to see it happen," he said. "I'm a big supporter of that."

Bernie. Enough said.

This does sound good though, it would be nice for it to deal with Emergence day as oppose to the plot of the first game, which is pretty weak.

Game rules, but I'm sure that the movie will be rated PG-13 and suck really bad! Just sayin....

they have to make it animated just so they can use john dimagio voice as marcus fenix or at least dub the voice if not the movie will not even be worth watching. i will sit through the movie if it has the stupidest story uf they hav john dimagio

They should cast Bale so he can break out the Batman voice. I use it all the time at the bar on women, it actually works.

It sounds like they're working in the right direction, but there are far too many movies based on video games in development right now

Yeah there are too many video game and graphic novel adaptations coming out. I have high hopes for this one. For one, he knows Doom was horrible and since he recognizes that he knows what not to do and he also knows how to cast. I don't know how i feel about the female COGS though they're going to have to be butch and lesbianish to look believable.

Never played any of the two games..but if it's good, I'll definitely want to see it. In the meantime, check this out:

Aren't Len and Kate married? Just make her do it. And so far I like his approach to this.

Mickey Rourke anyone?? for Marcus?? or maybe somebody more low profile like Nick Chinlund, check it out on IMDB, NOW!!! and put Edgar Ramirez as Dominic. And at last, Robert Patrick on a cameo as the Colonel!!! As you may know, ROBERT PATRICK is the one on my picture
