Microsoft gameÂ Gears of War to be seen in film adaptation
By Doug Nagy
Los Angeles,(RushPRnews/The Movie Blog)10/30/08–The Movie Blog reported today that the locusts from Gears Of War will be seen in the film adaptation. We get the following scoop from our friends at MTV:”Gears of Warâ€ screenwriter Chris Morgan had some good news for gamers hungry for information about the upcoming live-action adaptation of the hit Microsoft game. In addition to all the details spilled today over on MTV.com, weâ€™re happy to report your favorite heavily armed, flesh-mauling bad guys from underneath the planetâ€™s surface are not only in good hands, but theyâ€™re all but assured of appearing on screen.
â€œI donâ€™t think you would want to see a movie of this game without them in it,â€ said Morgan of the likelihood that Corpsers, Seeders and, yes, Berserkers, would wreak on-screen havoc in the much-anticipated video game adaptation.
I am not familiar with Gears Of War, so when Locusts are mentioned I picture the winged beasts of biblical plagues. I am guessing that the name may be used for a team of vigilantes or enemies – that is what I glean from the above information anyway.
For those of you that play the Game, please fill me in on who/what the Locusts are and your thoughts on their inclusion.
The graphics for this game are insane, and I am looking forward to seeing if the CGI in the film is just as impressive.
