Variety is reporting that the popular third-person shooter videogame "Gears Of War" is being developed with Scott Stuber producing and script development with Epic Games. Stuber has a first look deal with Universal and will shop the idea around to other studios but the project does not have any talent or writers.
The videogame story is set on the planet Sera and follows a former P.O.W. who is civilizationís best hope in the fight against the Locust Horde, a race of creatures who emerged from beneath the planetís surface and are intent on eliminating humankind.
New Line originally looked to make Gears Of Wars into a feature back in 2007 with Stuart Beattie to adapt the script and Len Wiseman to direct. New Line let the rights go after creative differences between the studio and Epic could not be reconciled.
