ComingSoon has an update about the previously announced Gears of War movie adaptation today. A statement from producer Wyck Godfrey (Alien Vs Predator and I, Robot) reveals, “We’ve got our script on and a director we’re about to attach. We’ll hopefully make that early next year for the summer of 2010.”
Gears of War is a bestselling first person shooter game on the XBox 360 and PC that pits human soldiers against a race of subterranean monsters called the Locust Horde. Cliff “Cliffy B” Bleszinski was the lead designer of the game, and he’s also worked on the treatment for the movie adaptation. Prior to the movie release, though, we can expect the game sequel to Gears to hit in November 2008.
