New Line has, it seems, put the kibosh on a planned film based on the immensely popular Gears of War. So, it seems like you won't be seeing Marcus Fenix on the big screen anytime soon. The reason? The large budget required to do the movie, coupled with the fact that most films based on videogames have been total crap and have done bad business, makes for a cocktail of doom for the GOW project.

Still, there's an outside chance the project could be ressurected at some point. The Gears screenwriter, Stuart Beattie, says that perception of videogame films might change if there's a successful project at some point. Until that happens, however, you can count on no Gears in the theater.
