Gears of War film producer, Wyck Godfrey, has told Making Of that he would like to tell the story of Emergence Day instead of just creating a movie full of battle, bullets, and macho muscle men.

“We went to the guys that created the game and just sort of made our pitch about how we’re going to put it together,” he said. “Right now we’re working with Len Wiseman on it at Legendary and New Line.

“The hard part is to make it into something that doesn’t feel like a world torn asunder and people just in battle. You gotta figure out — I think we really want to focus on the idea of a world that’s running well and then its Emergence Day.

“Kind of make it impactful and immediate and the survival of those 48 hours, as people survive Emergence Day – more like Cloverfield or something like that.”

Sounds cool. Watch the video through the link.
