“Maaaaaarrrrriiiia!” Variety reports that Scott Stuber, of Bluegrass Films, has agreed to produce the Gears of War movie. He will develop a script in cooperation with Epic Games. Stuber most recently produced Ted and Battleship. Hopefully, these will be inspirational to Stuber so that the Gears movie will be hilariously crude and explosively dumb.
New Line originally had the movie rights, but after failures to get production started, they let the property revert to Epic who has since been courting filmmakers to commit.
