It's official: after months of rumours and speculation,Gears Of War, the popular third person shooter is getting a cinematictreatment, courtesy of director Len Weisman.

For those not familiar to Weisman's work, he's the guy thatbrought use the excreable Underworld series and the actually not bad Die Hardsequel, Die Hard 4.0.

Much-delayed Halo movie

Writing duties go to Chris Morgan. Who? We hear you cry.Well, he wrote Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift and the screenplay to thesoon-to-be-summer smash Wanted. He's re-jigging a script that was written by StuartBeattie, who penned the upcoming GI Joe movie and is even lending a hand to themuch-delayed Halo movie.

The film is being produced by a slimlined New Line Cinemawho have the rights to a Gear Of War movie. Len Weiseman was poised to be director ofthe film over a year ago, but it's taken up until now to get his name signed onthe dotted line.

So, to kick off the specultation here: who do you think willplay Marcus Fenix? TechRadar likes the idea of Bruce Willis. He's worked withWeisman before on Die Hard 4.0 and has got the 'don't mess with you face' thatFenix has and needs. But then again, so has Mo from EastEnders.
