GOW would translate over to a good action packed movie. i'm hoping they get a good name to direct it, make it feel very epic like Aliens or Bladerunner.

Who wants to bet money that it will be slated by the critics like all other game to film adaptations. I've only liked Doom and R.E 1, not that i was wild about them.

let's hope they do a much better job than Doom.

I went in to watch Doom expecting it to suck, but I ended up being pleasently suprised.

I'm hoping that The Rock plays the main character in Gears of War.

Argh, please not the Rock as Marcus. I found a blog that had really inspired casting:


Nick Chinlund (Chronicles of Riddick, Tears of the Sun) as Marcus:

Francisco Gonzales as Dom (Saw II):

Mighty Rasta as Cole (best known for the Terry Tate "Office Linebacker" commercials. Besides looking the part- he is a BIG guy- Rasta also voiced Cole in the game!)

Jason Scott Lee as Kim (when Lee works out heavily, he can put on a LOT of muscle bulk):

Brian Van Holt as Baird

I take that back Venkman, I like your casting much better.

Those are some pretty good choices, the only one I'm not sure of is Marcus ... you know they will go with some bigger name actor. Maybe Ron Perlman would work? He's getting kind of old and he's not all that built but he's got the perfect voice. I sure hope this movie tries to retain the art style of the game, and has a healthy dose of the cole-train.

I always get the feeling of hope mixed with dread at these game-to-movie crossovers. The potential is huge, but then squandered by hollywood "coolness".

oh yeah, there is a LOT that can go wrong. but the game is already setup like a movie; easy plot, easy characters... these are the good guys, there are the bad guys, now start shooting each other in exciting ways.

GOW has summer action written all over it. games like Halo where there is a deeper stroyline have a harder time coming over to the screen [but it can be done].

I fear that they will turn this movie into a vehicle for some "big name" actor or hollywood "it" boy. If they stay low key and just get good actors, this movie could rule. Good acting can somewhat make up for a bad script. Cast unknowns who can act and save money for the FX budget! ;)

Chinlund has a more gravely voice than Perlman, too. But I doubt they will cast Chinlund, despite his lengthy resume.

They better cast Rasta as Cole. It doesn't get better than him!

Harrison Ford is 20 years older but then again he is a big name.

I'm gonna have to go back and watch Riddick, I can't remember what Chinlund sounds like even though I recognize him. I mean there's really 2 major requirements for playing Marcus, a deep raspy voice and total badassness...and yes, Rasta must play Cole.
