Terry Crews and Dave Bautista are working to make a Gears Of War movie
Gears of War is one of those franchises that the internet periodically begs for (much like a new series of Firefly or Half Life 3).
The film has been dangling a carrot in front of the internet for over a decade now, and now we have new juicy new rumour to talk about; Terry Crews and Dave Bautista are connected (or at least they want to be).
In 2007 New Line Cinema acquired the rights to make the film, though nothing ever happened. Then 2008, a 2010 release date was mentioned. Of course, there were production issues and the film was scrapped once again.
Fast forward to right now and the film is once again in development. What that means considering the film was also 'in development' a decade ago remains to be seen.
However, fans of the videogame series now have two Hollywood heroes in their corner; Dave Bautista and Terry Crews.
Bautista recently tweeted that Hollywood is listening and that he’s tried everything to make this movie happen.
They’re listening. And they could give AF! .. but thank you for the support. Believe me when I say I’ve tried everything to make this happen. https://t.co/8THxKLkbdV— Dave Bautista (@DaveBautista) July 23, 2019
Terry Crews then jumped in thanks to a tweet from Stephen Ford. Crews said that he “likes this”. “Very much” in fact.
Crews then tweeted a picture alongside Bautista, going onto say that “I like it a lot”.
Gears of War is made by Epic Games, the same people behind Fortnite. The game is a third person shooter, with an injection of monsters and spacey stuff. It takes place on an Earth-like planet, with big, buff futuristic soldiers take on the ‘Locust Horde’, monsters that live below the earth’s surface.
The film was initially said to follow an invasion storyline of these Locust monsters, but with so many production changes even that's up in the air.
What we do know is that the internet has collectively agreed that Bautista and Crews would be perfect for the film. So come on Hollywood, hurry up and make it.
