Gears of War Feature Film Gets a ProducerApril 30, 2013
Variety reports that Scott Stuber has come aboard the project as a producer.
New Line Cinema has previously tried to get a film adaptation off the ground with director Len Wiseman attached and a $100 million dollar budget. However, the project has been plagued in development hell, with Wiseman eventually leaving the project. The film does not currently have a distributor.
Scott Stuber’s most recent work includes producing Identity Thief and the blockbuster flop Battleship, which starred Taylor Kitsch, Rihanna, and Alexander Skarsgård.
The game focuses on the troops of Delta Squad as they wield a desperate, last-ditch attempt to save the remaining human inhabitants of the fictional planet Sera from a relentless and seemingly unstoppable subterranean enemy known as the Locust Horde. The player assumes the role of Marcus Fenix (but can also play as Dominic Santiago), a former prisoner and war-hardened soldier.
