Wiseman Say Gears of War Planned Trilogy





Gears of War 2 review!Len Wiseman recently chatted with the boys at Bloody Disgusting and revealed both some good and bad news for his planned adaptation of the Gears of War video game.

The good news? They’re planning on the films being a trilogy, which shouldn’t come anywhere near being surprising to anyone. Ever. I long for the day that some filmmaker comes out and says “I’ve always envisioned this movie as a quartet”.

Now for the bad news, from the horse’s mouth, as it were; “It’s going to be much more [on the] science fiction side of it than the creature side of it," Wiseman told the site. "I’ve always been much more of a sci-fi action fan than a horror fan.”

Which goes a long way to explaining why Underworld and its sequel weren’t nearly as cool as they could’ve been. Hey, as long as he makes Gears of War look cool, and by “cool” I do not mean tinted fucking blue for the entire thing, I’ll be happy.

NEXT STORY

I actually really liked the creature stuff in UNDERWORLD: EVOLUTION. Both the batman vampire and the huge main werewolf were pretty badass in my opinion. The gore helped, too. I'm pretty sure GOW will be firmly rooted in PG-13 soil, however. Still, surely it couldn't be worse than LIVE FREE OR SUCK HARD...

This is all the Lord of the Ring's fault. Trilogies can't end soon enough.
GoW? The game's a little overrated in my opinion, but a movie (singular) might be cool.

Only with a drastic improvement in dialogue, which somehow I can't see Wiseman pulling off...
