Gears of War movie may be grinding to a halt

IGN tells us that the gears may be getting rusty on the Gears of War movie project, and a recent clog might be grinding things to a halt.

In recent news about Len Wiseman giving up directing duties for Escape from New York to Brett Ratner (great), it was said that he also won't be directing New Line's Gears of War movie. IESB.net contacted a source at New Line to get more details on Wiseman's departure, and that's when the bad news was dropped:

"New Line Cinema will most likely not move forward with (Gears of War) at all. Our source is saying that the studio has concerns with ballooning budget of the film."

Let's hope that's not true. Fat budget or not, Gears of War could be an easy and entertaning game film.

[thanks, Mr. Donut]
