There are a lot of projects related to Gears of War going on other than Gears 5. It now has been revealed that the Gears of War movie from Jurassic World company Universal and Microsoft has got a brand new writer on board.
The Wrap has shared that Universal Studios has hired F. Scott Frazier to work on the upcoming untitled Gears of War movie. F. Scott Frazier is fairly known. F. Scott Frazier does have some big movie experiences as he has worked on action movies like xXx: Return of Xander Cage starring Vin Diesel.
Other movies include Collide which starred Anthony Hopkins and Nicholas Hoult and The Numbers Station an action thriller starring John Cusack and Malin Ackerman.
Before him, we got to hear that Shane Salerno behind movies like Armageddon and Shaft was hired as a screenwriter for Gears of War movie. But it’s known that things change pretty fast in Hollywood so it’s not uncommon to happen.
This news was also confirmed by Rod Fergusson who’s producing the Gears of War film. He retweeted this news by saying “Y’all said you wanted Gears movie news, right?”.
This Gears of War movie has been in talks for a very long time. Back in 2007, New Line Cinema Studio behind The Lord of the Rings movie purchased the rights to make this Gears of Movie. It took us 9 years to know that the movie in works or not. In 2016, Microsoft announced that Gears of War Movie is in works and is being developed by Universal Pictures.
Also, the upcoming film adaptation of the game is not going to be exactly based on any Gears game. Rod Fergusson says that they are not going to copy a game in the series instead they want to make the best possible movie in every term.
We still don’t have any idea about what’s going to be the cast of Gears of War movie. Though Dave Bautista a famous wrestler and actor from Guardians of the Galaxy says that it is his dream role to play Marcus Fenix. And that’s not bad as he has got all the looks and everything Marcus needs as a character. People have also shared that they want to see Dwayne “THE ROCK” Johnson to be a part of the Gears of War movie cast and play the role of Dom. We will know more about the Gears of War movie cast in the future so stay tuned.
As for how good Scott Frazier really is? Well, his recent movies were not very successful. His all three movies don’t have good ratings on Rotten Tomatoes. The best of his work is xXx. Good news is that he was a part of the QA team for games like Tetris Evolution, Hot Wheels: Stunt Track Challenge and more. So this means he has some knowledge of games after all.
Now movies aside, we have upcoming Gears 5 video game to look out for. Gears 5 release date is rumored to collide with the release date of Gears of War: Retrospective book. Gears 5 release date is not known yet but we are expecting it to be in 2019.
