With the recent influx of anime shows being converted to live action films in Japan, Hollywood has somewhat gave an answer back by making a few video games into movies. The latest of those projects was announced last fall by Universal and Microsoft studios for the popular Gears of War franchise. Just recently, the companies announced that Avatar’s very own Shane Salerno will be writing the screenplay for the film. Now if you don’t know Shane Salerno don’t worry not many people do, but you might recall his work. He has helped write the screenplay for the movies Armageddon and Oliver Stone’s Savages. He also helped co-write the story for the Tom Clancy’s Ghost recon Wildlands, which is pretty awesome.
Although a release date for the movie has yet to be confirmed, with Shane at the helm writing the screenplay, I’m still excited to see how the movie will play out. We do know that the movie won’t have anything to do with the game series at all, but instead will tell another story within the Gears universe.
