New Line snatches up War

21 03 2007

A lots of great things have been said about this Gears of War videogame, so it comes as no surprise that New Line has snatched up the rights to a big-screen version.
It’s action, it’s sci-fi, and it’s already got a built-in audience of a million gaming geeks. According to Variety, the story’s about “a world reeling from an invasion by aliens known as the Locust. A small group of elite soldiers, including main character Marcus Fennix, who is rescued from prison at the beginning of the game, fight to retake the planet Sera for its surviving humans.”
Screenwriter Stuart Beattie is the one on adaptation duty, although a director has yet to be announced. Fans can most likely expect a second game to hit shelves around the same time as the movie. And it looks like that’ll be in the summer of 2009.
