According to recent news, Marcus Feenix’s debut in Hollywood has been fragged beyond all recognition. The upcoming movie adaptation of Gears of War has come to a screeching halt due to budget concerns; ergo New Line will most likely not be moving forward on this film. Video game properties, with the exception of the Resident Evil movies, have not had the same impact as movies starring comic book heroes Batman, Spider-Man, X-Men, etc. According to the IESB, “Studios have a hard time gambling $100 million dollars plus to a genre that has not been able to break out of the ‘Uwe Boll’ stereotypes.” Zing!!!

Stuart Beattie, the screenwriter behind the Gears movie, has admitted that although perceptions are starting to change in Hollywood regarding movies based on video games, they are still a hard sell.

“While there are more and more video game movies being made because there are more and more videogames being made, there still hasn’t been that one that has hit it out of the park yet,” Beattie told GamePro. “At the moment, I would say the perception of video game movies in Hollywood is: they are interested, they’re intrigued, but they’re still not completely sure if it can actually work.”

If New Line changes its mind and does indeed proceed with the film, don’t expect it to hit theaters until some time in 2009.
