    "Potential blockbuster? Or another candidate for the Uwe Boll awards? (Ok, there's no Uwe Boll awards... but there should be.) Director Len Wiseman has big, big plans for the Gears of War movie. And he isn't even a gamer. He admits as much:

    All I can say is that I hope they're more faithful to the original source than the Dragonball Evolution movie. The Gears of War flick will be penned by Fast and Furious writer, Chris Morgan."

    So it's going to be a trilogy. Are they just going to divide the two games into three movies. O
    Or is this some kind of hint that there's going to be a third game?


    p.s. Bioshock the movie was in the works for a while, anyone know what happened to that

    BioShock movie is still in the works. I think I saw an interview with the director a while ago and they said Summer 2010 or Summer 2012... one of those.

    I really dont see the Halo, Gears, or BioShock movies being any good. What works for a game doesn't work for a movie. Has there been a good video game movie yet? Not that I recall. Hopefully a movie studio can prove me wrong. I would love to go to a theater to see a good game movie.

    Gears dosent have enough of a decent plot to be made into a film, not that its stopped film makers before. It could be ok though I guess if its just an action flick done well.

    Not really getting my hopes up on this one though.

    Gears might turn out well, it depends what they do for story and who they choose as actors. Now a BioShock movie I can see turning out really well, the story was just superb in that. It would be cool, at least for BioShock, if they included some first-person scenes, ala the Doom movie. Let's just hope the rest of it doesn't suck.

    It will be good if the action is constant and epic. It will fail if it tries to stop for more than a minute to explain the plot.
