gears of war

The upcoming live action Gears movie has its writer on board, as production on the video game adaptation continues. Jon Spaihts, co-writer on 'Dune' and Marvel's 'Doctor Strange', will be leading the script.

The Gears of War social channels have reposted the news as well, stating that the collaboration is "a hell of an honor" and that Spaihts is a Gears fan himself - which is good to see.

The movie was first announced in November of last year, with Netflix committing to two adaptations for Xbox's blockbuster franchise. If all goes according to plan, an "adult animated series" will follow the movie, with the potential for even more projects after that.

In the gaming world, developer The Coalition is reportedly moving well into development on the series' sixth iteration, with Gears 5 now almost four years on from its release - back in September 2019.
