    I think this would be better off at WB/Legendary.

    Dude, it's Gears of War. I think even CliffyB was inspired by his GI Joe toys/ early 90's comic book cliches for the look. It's not meant to be deep or cerebral, or dramatic theater.

    Means nothing to me until there is something in front of the cameras. Doesn't seem like a reality IMHO.

    Yeah, I'll believe this when I see a trailer. Until then it's just another Bioshock, Halo, Assassin's Creed, etc...

    I still like these picks from the first Gears thread a couple years back, although I'd be open to Thomas Jane as Marcus too... Although Hollywood is probably gonna want to cast Whalberg, Rock and Reynolds.. not that I would be particularly against that mind but those choices would have Bay written all over it..

    Alex Proyas, Neill Blomkamp, Joe Carnahan or Michael Davis (Shoot Em Up) as directing choices maybe..


    Oh and speaking of Bioshock, I hope it does eventually get made, I can see Joe Kosinski doing a good job with it.

    Bioshock, man....Levine won't let anyone touch it. Though if he does, Benjamin Walker is Jack.

    This could give it new life, it's a straight forward enough concept / plot that with the right production it could just push through and for better or worse actually get made pretty quickly now.
    Or it's just entered the next cycle of production hell.

    Those work, also think Thomas Jane would better carry it.

    Here's some other pics with accompanying clips wich makes it fun. http://www.geekenstein.com/casting-call-gears-of-war-the-movie/
    Not a big fan of Batista as Marcus. The one that really sold me was Franky (G) Gonzalez as Dominic Santiago.
    And the original thread if the mods want to merge- //forums.superherohype.com/showthread.php?t=268573&highlight=gears+war

    Another take -

    Yeah, I seriously doubt Purcell has anything huge going on at the moment that he couldn't do the role.

    Anson Mount as Fenix Sr.

    What makes you think Purcell is on their short list?

    Nothing, we're just bandying the name around. I'm sure randos from the industry lurk these sites on occasion.

    Yeah unfournatly that's a possibility :(. I can see E-Day being the focus and a group of cogs that first battled the locust with Fenix Sr having a small role(probably played by Gary Oldman)

    Batista is almost 50. Kind of old to play Marcus Fenix, unless it's GOW 4 circa Marcus.

    This scene gets me everytime. But man... I'm skeptical they can create good war drama. It has to be R. It has to be character-driven. It needs large budget.
