Gears movie like 'harder Lord of the Rings' (CVG 26/1/09)

Post by VampiricPadraig on Mon Jan 26, 2009 9:57 am

The long-discussed Gears of War movie could be a trilogy of films, director Len Wiseman (Die Hard 4.0) has revealed.

Speaking to movie site Bloody Disgusting, the director, who's currently co-penning the script for Gears with Fast & Furious scribe Chris Morgan, described the films as like a "harder edged Lord Of The Rings"

"I'm writing Gears Of War with Chris Morgan, who wrote Wanted," he said, revealing that he's not actually a gamer (though hopefully he can make a film). "I suck at video games, it just takes me too long and I can't get the coordination of 'em," he said.

"When I was on Die Hard, I had to choose some video game for the background in a scene with Kevin Smith. I was shown about a dozen games and told to 'Choose one to be in the background' and I said 'this one looks really, really cool whatever it is,' and it was Gears Of War. I just really connected with it; the design of it the world, the whole thing. So I actually brought an Xbox 360 to start researching what it was."

For the first time, the director revealed that he wants the scope of the film to be told over the course of three films. "The hope is that were wanting to do a three movies and really cover the bases on everything. Basically a harder edged Lord Of The Rings," he said.

"It's going to be much more [on the] science fiction side of it than the creature side of it. I've always been much more of a sci-fi action fan than a horror fan."

Peter Jackson had three gigantic books as reference material. Wiseman has two games of fairly generic (but brilliant) blokes shouting at eachother - it's not exactly Tolkien. But we'll keep our fingers crossed.
