Twilight producer gives update on game-to-film.
December 7, 2009 - Producer Wyck Godfrey (the Twilight series) has spilled some beans on the Gears of War movie.
In a video chat with Making Of, Godfrey confirmed that he's working on it with Underworld and Live Free or Die Hard director Len Wiseman for Legendary Pictures (300, The Dark Knight) and New Line Cinema.
"The hard part is to make it into something that doesn't feel like a world torn asunder and people just in battle. I think we really want to focus on the idea of a world that's running well and then it's Emergence Day. Kind of make it impactful and immediate and like what those 48 hours are as people survive Emergence Day," said Godfrey. "It's more like Cloverfield or something like that because trying to tell the epic story of an alien planet that's living in a horrific environment just feels like the wrong mood right now."
Billy Ray (Breach, Shattered Glass) is currently rewriting the GoW script originally penned by Chris Morgan (Wanted).
