Len Wiseman named director of Gears of War movie


The upcoming big screen adaptation of the hit video game Gears of War officially has a director–Len Wiseman.

You might recognize Wiseman as the director of other movies such as the Underworld movies as well as the most recent Die Hard movie, Live Free or Die Hard.

Chris Morgan, writer one of the writers on Cellular, The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift and Wanted, will be head writer and Cliff Bleszinski (aka “Cliffy B”) will be executive producer.

The movie was initially aiming for a summer 2009 release but Epic Games chief Mark Rein says “we want to get it right. There’s no timetable for us.”
