According to a new report, New Line Cinema has won the rights to develop a film version of Microsoft and Epic's blockbuster Gears of War from the makers of Collateral and Derailed. Variety is reporting that the film will be written by Stuart Beattie, screenwriter for thrillers Collateral and Derailed. According to IMDB, Beattie is also involved in an adaptation to driving game SpyHunter tentatively set for release in 2009. Marty Bowen, former producer of The Nativity Story, and Wyck Godfrey, producer of a number of films including Alien Vs. Predator and Daddy Day Care will be producing the film through their Temple Hill Entertainment company. Microsoft's last attempt at a cinematic franchise adaptation, with Peter Jackson's Wingnut Films committing to make a film version of Halo, ended late in 2006, with the two companies confirming that production work had been "postponed" following reports of Universal Studios and 20th Century Fox backing out of the big-budget feature.
