ComingSoon.net recently had the chance to talk with Temple Hill Productions producer big man Wyck Godfrey about the status of the Gears of War movie and where it's headed. Godfrey confirmed with them that their team has a finalized script, almost has a director attached to the flick and are scheduled to start filming "early next year for [release] the summer of 2010". A Summer 2010 release, not too shab.

And to recap: It's good that the Gears of War movie hasn't gone the way of our long time shelved (but still promised) Halo movie. The bad is that we have to wait until at least 2010 to see Marcus chainsaw his way through a live action locust hell. Who wants to bet that Cliffy will be making a cameo? Any takers?
