Looks like there is going to be a Gears of War movie made.
Variety is reporting that New Line has acquired the movie rights to Gears of War. Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey will produce the film under the Temple Hill banner. Stuart Beattie, who has also written Collateral and Derailed, penned the Gears of War movie’s 21-page script.
This news comes not long after Microsoft’s attempt to have a movie made based upon the Halo franchise. Fox and Universal officially signed onto the project in August 2005. Not two months later, Peter Jackson agreed to produce the film, bringing the resources of Weta Digital to bear. However, Fox/Universal backed out of the movie in October 2006, leaving after attempts to decrease the movie’s budget failed and also reportedly due to disappointment with the choice of relative unknown Neill Blomkamp to direct the film.

Hopefully the movie has a better storyline than the game lol 😛
