Gears of War (What to Know)

Stuart Beattie, who has written scripts for "Pirates of the Caribbean," "Collateral," "Derailed" & the upcoming "30 Days of Night," spoke to GamePro about the big screen adaptation of the "Gears of War" video game. According to him, the new film will be similar to Zack Snyder's "300".

"That film was shot completely on green screen, which is amazing when you actually see the film," said Beattie. "It's probably how we're going to do 'Gears of War.'"

"There's no way to build that world any other way, really," he continued. "That's a huge world. It's a planet and it's a bubble and it's a building. It's an epic sci-fi war and an enormous film. To get it made at all, the only way to make it for a price is to be on a soundstage. But the game also has that look, which is really interesting, so I think it will dovetail really nicely."

Beattie said he's working closely with Epic Games & Cliff Bleszinski, lead designer of the game. He will be visiting the studio multiple times as he writes the script, asking for feedback from everyone who works in the building.

I hope it can be pulled off & not be cheesy because Stuart Beattie's work is 50/50 .

Coming: 2010
