Gears of War is finally being adapted for the silver screen as Netflix has announced they are partnering with The Coalition to adapt the series for a live action film and animated series.
Gears of War was released 16 years ago today and to mark the occasion, Netflix has partnered with The Coalition to adapt the @GearsofWar video game saga into a live action feature film, followed by an adult animated series — with the potential for more stories to follow! pic.twitter.com/3zInFSnUu4— Netflix (@netflix) November 7, 2022
The Hollywood Reporter has more details in this announcement, saying “The move comes after long months of negotiations in a competitive environment with the streamer nabbing the media rights and partnering with The Coalition, the Canadian game developer behind the franchise. It also comes on the 16th anniversary of the game, which was originally released on Nov. 7, 2006.”
There are currently no names attached to either project, so it will be interesting to see who is tasked with bringing these adaptations to life.
