Gears of War Film Director Eyes Trilogy

Director Len Wiseman (Live Free or Die Hard, Underworld: Evolution) is planning to helm a triplet of films based on Epic's Gears of War shooter franchise, according to a new interview.

"The hope is that we're wanting to do three movies and really cover the bases on everything," said Wiseman to horror site Bloody-Disgusting. "Basically a harder edged Lord Of The Rings." nope

Wiseman signed on to direct the Gears adaptation last June. The screenplay is being penned by Chris Morgan (Wanted, The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift), with the project being financed by Legendary Pictures and New Line Cinema.

"It's going to be much more [on the] science fiction side of it than the creature side of it," added Wiseman of the film. "I've always been much more of a sci-fi action fan than a horror fan."
