These movies have the potential to be incredibly amazing if they follow the games properly, have a proper cast and keep them rated R. On the flip side of the coin, it could be a massively frustrating disappointment - the way most video game-based movies tend to be.
I really don’t want them to turn this into something it’s not and have them adding more characters, more love interests and unnecessary dialogue. Please Mr. Wiseman, just make the movies like the games.
The problem with all of these video game movies is that they never seem to actually follow what made the game so successful… and it’s such a simple concept. And while not making these movies properly, they tend to make them even worse with poor writing and casting choices.
So far, there has been little information other than that, so it’s hard to make predictions based solely on what Wiseman has said so far. As far as a release date, the highly unconfirmed information we have is it is supposed to reach theaters some time in 2010. You should take that information with a big grain of salt since the project is still in the screenwriting stage.
We’ll keep you updated as more information comes out in the future.
What do you think of the Gears of War movie plan that Len Wiseman is proposing?
