The list of video games that will try their luck in film and television has grown exponentially in recent years. One of the films that generates the most expectation, especially due to the repercussion that the game had at the time, is that of Gears of War. The film, which will come from Netflix, was announced with great fanfare in November of the previous year. Almost half a year later, the platform finally shared new details of the project.
Through its website, Netflix advertisement that the adaptation of Gears of War He has added a luxury signing. Is about Jon Spaihts, who was also a screenwriter for Dune and Doctor Strange. Without a doubt, it is an addition that will be very well received by fans of the franchise. Clearly, it raises hopes of seeing a feature film up to the task of Delta Squad.
«Gears of War is one of the best action games of all time, with intense characters, a beautifully designed world, and a combat system that reflects the lethality of war and the importance of supporting your squadmates. The franchise wants to be cinema, and I’m delighted to have the opportunity to help make that happen,” said Spaihts.
Netflix emphasizes that the writer already has experience dealing with issues of civilizations in conflict. she did it with Dune, the outstanding adaptation of Frank Herbert’s book. Now, however, she must explore what happened on the planet Sera. The Locust, a race that lived hidden in the depths, rises to the surface to conquer all.
Humanity, evidently, is not going to make it easy for them. The story of Gears of War focuses on the figure of marcus phoenix, a fierce soldier who leads Delta Squad on a series of dangerous missions. But beyond the war conflict with the Locust, the story also has its own emotional touch when dealing with themes such as friendship and love.
“We are thrilled to partner with Jon and the Netflix team to bring to life Gears of War. He is a master storyteller with a talent for creating epic sci-fi universes, and he truly loves Gears of War. We couldn’t ask for a better ally to honor our franchise and deliver an authentic story to our fans,” said The Coalition, Microsoft’s internal studio and franchise manager.
For now, yes We still have no news about the cast. This subject, without a doubt, is the one that generates the most debate among fans of Gears of War; mainly because the most in-demand actor has already shown interest in taking the role of Marcux Fenix. We talk, of course, about dave bautista. Given that Microsoft has been user-friendly lately, let’s not be surprised if this interpretation comes true.
