The Gears of War Movie Has A Screenwriter Attached!?
Screenwriting By Ahmed Taher | March 1, 2018
I love video games. I always have. I’m a sucker for incredible single player experience. Particularly when those experiences are driven by an amazing story.
But let’s face it, adapting a video game for the big screen isn’t exactly… profitable? I got burned TWICE in 2016. I fully believed Warcraft and Assassin’s Creed would help kick start a golden age of video game movie adaptations.
It didn’t happen. Nearly 10 years ago, in Marvel’s Iron Man, Nick Fury explained to Tony Stark that he was part of a bigger world. That moment launched the idea of a shared movie universe. A trend that continues to build strength which every successful release.
The video game world is staying waiting for a big Nick Fury type moment. The next big glimmer of hope is the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot starring Alicia Vikander. Now we have another big franchise to look forward to: Gears of War.
