New Line Wins Feature Rights To The Microsoft And Epic Video Game.

" The Hollywood daily newspaper hounds at ‘Variety’ have just reported that the 'Gears of War' movie rights have been making their rounds, and the news is that those rights have just been bought up by the chaps at New Line Cinema. Stuart Beattie will be writing the screenplay and Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey will be producing the big screen blockbuster. Also, Cliff Bleszinski, ‘CliffyB’, will be an Executive Producer, overseeing the production development for Epic Games.

What is also being touted around is the idea that a sequel game to ‘Gears of War’ is being produced so that it will then be available in stores around about the same time as the film hits the cinemas."
