CliffyB Talks 'Gears' Movie


Posted October 4, 2007 - By Stephen Johnson

Yeah, yeah, it's all about Halo 3 lately, but there's an older shooter that demands your attention: Gears of War.

While creator CliffyB is tight-lipped about any sequel plans for the blockbuster, he had a little to say about the Gears of War movie.

  • It's being developed at New Line cinema with Stuart Beattie, who wrote Pirates of the Caribbean.
  • The screenwriter is a fan, who beat the game several times and is hooked on multi-player.
  • Cliffy on working with NewLine: "Partnering with New Line on the movie is like partnering with Microsoft on Gears. You know Microsoft knows how to get Halo out there and market it and help facilitate a blockbuster experience. New Line, having done Lord of the Rings, they know how to back a very risky but also a potentially very lucrative franchise and make sure it's treated with the respect it deserves.
  • Cliffy says: "The fact that Gears is an M-rated franchise and involves people getting chainsawed in half, it's got to be a pretty f***ing hardcore movie."
