No writer or director has been announced just yet.
During today’s Gears of War 4 launch live stream, Coalition studio head Rod Fergusson confirmed that a Gears of War film is in development at Universal.
No writer or director has been announced yet, and Fergusson would not confirm at what point in the Gears universe the movie will take place.
Ted and Central Intelligence producer Scott Stuber, as well as Planet of the Apes’ Dylan Clark are both on board to produce for Universal’s Bluegrass Films division. No release date has been set for the film.
In the past, a possible Gears of War movie has been discussed, but that project had no talent or distributors attached to it.
Gears of War 4 launches on October 11 — ahead of the game’s launch, catch up on everything you need to know about the next Gears of War.
