Locust invasion in 2010

Gears of War is one of those games that comes along and just wows people. Yes, it was extremely short, but good lord was it pretty. And yes, its a video game and this is a site about comics, but Gears is sci-fi enough that I feel justified in reporting on the impending movie. That's dated for 2010 apparently. ComingSoon spoke with Wyck Godfrey, one of the producers in charge of the big screen adaptation of the game. Godfrey says they've got a script and are about to attach a director, targeting summer 2010 for a release by New Line Cinemas. This makes perfect sense from a unity standpoint. The sequel to the game is due out later this year, which would be two years since the first game. So if you expect the third and final game (part of the always popular trilogy) to be due out in another two years, that would put its release in 2010. Timing the movie to release with or around the third and final game would be a very smart marketing move. But I guess it also depends on what story the movie will go with. The story has to fit within the framework of the games, as I would assume they would continuity among the four. But the movie could be a prequel to all three games. Guess we'll have to wait and see. All I know is that there better be lots of chainsaws and lots of Cole Train rapping. Gears of War movie dated?
