News: Are you ready for at least six hours of Gears of War action on the big screen?

Len Wiseman, the director of the Underworld series and Live Free or Die Hard has been tapped to bring one of the Xbox 360's biggest hits, Gears of War, to movie theaters in the future. And on Friday, he talked to about his plans for the film trilogy:

?I'm writing Gears Of War with Chris Morgan, who wrote Wanted,? he tells BD before explaining that he wasn't much of a gamer until he saw GOW in his movie Live Free Or Die Hard.

?I suck at video games, it just takes me too long and I can't get the coordination of ?em. When I was on [Live Free Or] Die Hard, I had to choose some video game for the background in a scene with Kevin Smith. I was shown about a dozen games and told to ?Choose one to be in the background' and I said ?this one looks really, really cool whatever it is,' and it was Gears Of War. I just really connected with it; the design of it the world, the whole thing. So I actually brought an Xbox 360 to start researching what it was.?

?It's going to be much more [on the] science fiction side of it than the creature side of it. I've always been much more of a sci-fi action fan than a horror fan,? he reveals also explaining that he wants the scope of the film to be told over the course of three films! ?The hope is that were wanting to do a three movies and really cover the bases on everything. Basically a harder edged Lord Of The Rings.?

It's worrisome that he barely heard of Gears of War before getting the director's job (especially since he's writing the script), but Live Free or Die Hard was a pretty great movie. While a trilogy is looking way ahead to the future, at least it's not in Uwe Boll's hands.
