Many fans have thought the Gears of War movie might not make it at all, however, recent reports have said that the Gears of War Movie is Confirmed, and will be produced at the Universal Studios. Rod Fergusson, the Coalition studio head has confirmed the latter during the live stream of Gears of War 4 and said that the Gears of War movie is already in production at the Universal Studios.
Moreover, Fergusson has announced that the producers will be Scott Stuber who worked on Ted and Ted 2, The Kingdom Battleship and 7 Ronin, and Dylan Clark, known for his work on Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, and War of the Planet of the Apes. It was also stated that the goal of the production team is not to create a total adaptation of the game franchise into the movie, but to make the Gear of Wars movie unique. During the live stream, Fergusson also said:
“As a way to support the franchise, the next logical step was to make the movie. We’d done comics and novels in the past but the opportunity to work with Universal to bring the movie to life was perfect. When you’re doing a movie like this, you have to realize that it’s a different medium with a different audience. I think if you were to go in and say, ‘Okay, it’s got to be completely 100 per cent faithful to the game canon,’ or the story of the game, what’s going to end up happening is it’s not going to be the best movie. The big thing we’re really trying to focus on is making the best Gears movie possible, as opposed to the one that’s the most closest to the game.”
Followed by a praising statement for Universal Studios:
“That’s one of the great things about working with Universal. We’re finding that line where we can say it has enough lore and canon that it feels genuine to the game while at the same time going beyond that and asking ‘OK, what makes a great movie”
There is yet to be an official release date for the Gears of War Movie and it is sure that we will have to wait a while to feast our eyes on it, However, fans can keep themselves busy as the game Gears of War 4 has already been released.
