Universal Gearing up For 'Gears of War' Movie

Whether or not you like movies based on video games, there are some pretty solid rumors that a Gears of War movie is coming. They are getting writers all lined up and if the script is any good, there may be a movie coming in the next couple of years. As much as I enjoy the Gears of War saga, I really hope they don't try and do a movie. Gears of War 4 was heavy on the story, and it wasn't as great as the other games with less story.

Universal and Microsoft announced their collaboration on the game in late 2016. At the time, Rod Fergusson, head of Microsoft subsidiary The Coalition that develops new Gears Of War content and the franchise co-creator, said the film would not be based on any particular game but instead be a new story set in the universe.
