Way, way, way back when, a Gears of War movie looked to be happening. Len Wiseman was attached and it all looked to be heading forwards. Sadly, it never came to be.
However, with video games seemingly being the flavour of the month in Hollywood, it's perhaps not surprising that talk of a movie is beginning to circulate again. In fact, when asked about the possibility at a panel today directly, The Coalition's Rod Fergusson had this to say:
There is some stuff going on that I can't talk about today, but I'll possibly be talking about very soon. I'm very excited about what the future holds.
Now, this doesn't mean that much, and the extent of "stuff going on" could be minuscule, but at the same time, like I said, Hollywood is big on video games right now. Gears of War is one of the most cinematic, action packed series out there, so it would certainly be strange if these conversations weren't happening. I'd love to see it happen.
