Variety: Legendary Pictures looking to acquire Epic Games

8:25 AM on 10.24.2008 // Nick Chester

Word coming out of Variety today is that private film financier and production company Legendary Pictures is in negotiations to acquire Gears of War developer Epic Games. The information comes from "multiple sources close to the companies" that confirmed that talks were currently underway.

Of course, both Legendary and Epic are staying quiet on the matter. 

"We have publicly announced that Epic and Legendary are partnering on the Gears of War movie," Epic told Variety's Ben Fritz. "We’re very excited about that project and have the highest regard for [Legendary Pictures'] Thomas Tull and his organization."

Some Legendary backed films include The Dark Knight, 300, and the upcoming Watchmen.
