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.

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